1P 170 - Deck of Wonders interview

Welcome to another episode! This time around, Albert interviews Dennis Furia, the designer of Deck of Wonders, which is on Kickstarter right now.

This game has a nice M:TG feel to it in that you are fighting a battle against an enemy by summoning minions to fight for you.  However, what is really cool here is that this game is designed for solo play and does a very good job of giving you an interesting game experience.

It's on KS right now and worth looking into.

In this episode Julius talks about the latest completed Arkham Horror Cycle, the Dream-Eaters (whose name I have trouble getting straight).  This cool campaign takes players to Lovecraft's Dreamlands, though Julius and I will focus our discussion on the waking world, for now and visit the Dreamlands in an upcoming show.
