Podcast #110: The Gloomhaven universe, state of crowdfunding, "dry" Euros (guest: Isaac Childres)

The designer of Gloomhaven and Frosthaven joins The Going Analog Podcast to talk games.

Maybe you've heard of that hefty game called Gloomhaven, the #1 game on BoardGameGeek for over 5 years. Or its heftier sequel, Frosthaven, the highest-funded gaming project on Kickstarter ever. We're not sure how their designer, Isaac Childres, had time to chat with Going Analog, but we weren't going to pass up the opportunity. We pick his brain on all the -havens, his upcoming plans for the franchise, modern-day crowdfunding, and his love for "dry Euros."
