Interview with Jeff Barber on Blue Planet: Recontact

We had the pleasure of sitting down with Jeff Barber at GenCon to chat about the new version of Blue Planet he is working on! We talk about the changes in the new version, the inspiration behind it, and the long history. You can playtest it now by getting a copy on DriveThru!

GenCon 2019 Wrap Up

We harassed people on discord to chat with us about their time at GenCon and were generally pretty silly. We forgot to cover a bunch of cool things we did (some of which will show up as interviews later this week) and cool people we met, but I hope you enjoy hearing what we enjoyed!
 
Thanks to Tom and Kim for joining us!
 
(Please do let us know if you hated this so we can figure out if this is a thing worth doing more often)
