Going Analog

Where video game industry veterans introduce great board games to video gamers

Podcast #119: Her design secrets/inspirations, what we learn from gaming (guest: Elizabeth Hargrave)

With several upcoming Elizabeth Hargrave games due, we just had to have the designer back on the show to chat!

Let's be honest: We'll make any excuse to talk with Elizabeth Hargrave, the Kennerspiel-winning designer of Wingspan, Mariposas, and Tussie Mussie. So our current excuse? We wanted to talk to her about her soon-to-be-released The Fox Experiment (published by Pandasaurus) and Undergrove (by AEG). So now we can nerd out about how Elizabeth marries a (usually) nature-related theme to game design -- and all the random things we've learned about the world and each other while board gaming.
