Episode 140: Joseph McCullough (What Makes a Good Game?)
This week I speak once again to Joseph McCullough the creator of Frostgrave, Rangers of Shadow Deep,and Oathmark to name just 3. In this show we talk about what has been happening with him since we last spoke in episode 106, we also talk about his opinion on what makes a good game. He highlights the holy trinity that may be at odds with each other. If you haven’t heard from Joseph before I recommend going back to episode 66 for our first chat, then to 106, and then this one. Reason being is that in my first chats with people I tend to get to know them and their history. Subsequent ones we refer back to that but delve deeper into subjects.
I always enjoy my time with Joseph and I think that is because he never appears to give you the party line, he seems to genuinely consider the questions I sling at him and give me his opinion. I like that a lot, especially in an age of corporate sterility.
If you haven’t ever checked out a game by Joseph then make sure you do as he creates opportunities for you to interact with it in many ways both before/during/after the actual tabletop game.
