We are joined by Chris Kirkman, Darrell Louder, Nat Levan, and plenty of other special guests in this combined, The State of “Happy Mitten” Games Podcast! This recording was Happy Mittens first ever LIVE podcast and took place at Grand Con 2014. We had a blast at the event and with all of our powers combined, we managed to record something special for Happy Mitten’s in your face forty second episode.
The Justice League of board game podcasters welcome you to the episode! Playful banter ensues before we take it back to real town with a discussion on risk and what it takes to follow a business passion.
Feature: The State of “Happy Mitten” Games Podcast
Doing this episode in front of an audience created a bit of extra anxiety, but was so much fun! The group of us were able to have a great discussion on our current favorite games (Chris’s favorite may surprise you) and sneak in a couple serious questions on how difficult it can often be to start a business. Getting to share the stage with people whose work we respect was an amazing experience, and we hope you are able to have a few laughs while learning a little about how they do it. With surprise appearances from Jason Kotarski and Richard Launius, this episode has the goods.
We we’re able to get more play tests of Aether Magic in at Grand Con, even more so than GenCon! While this may well be an outlier, I do feel it’s easier to get a game play tested in the intimate setting a small to medium sized game convention creates.
Aether Magic’s illustration is currently scheduled to be completed at the end of October (sneak peaks to come), and our Kickstarter will launch as soon as we’re able to coordinate worldwide shipping to save you guys on pesky shipping costs. Plan to see Aether Magic on Kickstarter before the end of Q1 2015 (although we’re shooting for much earlier than that) and be sure to sign up for our mailing list to be the first to receive Happy Mitten’s special updates. Joining our mailing list also earns you a chance to win a copy of Sheriff of Nottingham in our end of September mailing list give away.
