Topic: Crystal Clans!

What did the dynamic of the design team look like when creating Crystal Clans?
Plaid Hat puts a lot of emphasis on theme in your games. Can you tell us a little about the world behind Crystal Clans?
The initiative system is definitely one of the unique mechanics about Crystal Clans. Can you tell us about the design behind the initiative system?
There are six different clans in the game can you tell us a little bit about the difference in the clans?
How do you approach special ability design when designing a game like this?
What does the development process look like when balancing this kind of game?
If you had to pick one clan which would you say is your personal favorite?
Is there a specific clan match up that you would suggest people start with for their first game?
The rule book talks about eventual clan customization in future releases? Can we assume more Crystal Clans is on the horizon?
Let’s talk about some of Plaid Hats other new releases?
Are you guys excited about how well Stuffed Fables has been received?
What is Plaid Hats philosophy about making games parents can play with their children?
Samurai Starships has been announced from Plaid Hat and we are hoping to have Isaac on to tell us more soon but can you give us a teaser for what that game is about?
In this episode the Meeples crew get together and catch up with what they have been up to, hobby-wise, in the past few weeks
Later in the show, they are joined by Adrian McWalter from Stand To Games.
We catch up with what Adrian and Quinton have been up to in the last year, and discuss their new projects with rules based in the Americas of the 18th and 19th Century

The exiles take center stage as bill professes some uncommon opinions then reports on Adepticon, and then we accidentally talk about Godtear for like twenty minutes.
This episode the guys pitch their ideas for movies based on boardgames. Then in the “Play It or Slay It” review they give their impressions of Gaslands, the coolest thing you can do with your old diecast cars.
Today the Lords start with a followup to Bender’s End of the World Zombie Apocalypse one shot session. Then the gang transitions to talking about Game Masters running a character within their own games. Then they finish the show by talking about great villains in RPG campaigns.
Carla is one of my favorite people in this industry. Thoughtful, witty, and a taste for the weird. I’m so glad that she agreed to come back on The Cardboard Herald, for our back to back, two parter, Fire in the Library extravaganza that began with Tony “The Bearded Rogue” Miller coming on last week.
