TGN Interviews


TGN's Enrico Nardini was at TempleCon 2015 and had some interviews with various people there, including the Dicedevils, Outlaw Miniatures, Ninja Division, and Grant Garvin, who is the Director of TempleCon.
They're up now on our new SoundCloud account. Go have a listen.

TGN contributor and Ravage Magazine's EIC Jared Miller managed to get a moment of Elan Lee's time to quickly chat about the "Most Backed Campaign in Kickstarter History," Exploding Kittens.

Game reviews are an important part of TGN. I'm a firm believer in getting all the information you can about a product before you make a purchase. With the price of many board games out there on the market, most of us can ill-afford to drop a load of cash on a game that'll just sit on the shelf.

A game review blog that's recently been on the rise is Club Fantasci. At the helm is David Lowry. I had a chat with David, trying to get to know a bit more about the man behind the website.

And since turn-about is fair play, he interviewed me as well! Check out Club Fantasci for my half of the interview.

So let's dive into another TGN Intervew. This time it's David Lowry from Club Fantasci.
 

TGN's Enrico Nardini directs his palantir towards Bryan Pope, resident conjurer at Arcane Wonders and the creator of Mage Wars.

Nom! Nom! Nom! Nom! Nom! Nom!

Let's hope Enrico doesn't get eaten in the process.

TGN Interviews

So get ready for another TGN Interview. This time it's all about Sharktipede.
Stone Blade Entertainment’s Justin Gary was kind enough to sit down with me while at GenCon 2014 and talk a bit about the latest releases for Ascension and Sol Forge, plus a bit about where they’re headed with future Ascension expansions.

We even got a sneak peek at some other fun stuff they’ve got in the works.

So grab your sword and shield as we head into another TGN Interview.
Mars Attacks, from Mantic, is racking up some pretty good numbers over on Kickstarter. Originally looking for $50k, they've made it to over $440k with still 20 days to go.



Mantic CEO, Ronnie Renton, was kind enough to answer some questions we sent him about the campaign.



So grab your ray gun and fishbowl helmet, it's time for the return of the long-lost TGN Interview.

GenCon was an absolute blast and very busy. We didn't get a chance to get this video up during the show, but here it is now for your viewing pleasure.



From the video:

Interviews from our final day at GenCon. It was quite a busy show.

Thanks again to all that stopped by and talked to us and we can't wait to see everyone again next year!


Iron Box Games is running their Kickstarter campaign for their first ever game, a dice and token game called Angry Sheep.



Misterjustin (most notably known for Secret Weapon Miniatures) is at the helm, guiding the sheep ship to its destination. He was kind enough to sit down for a quick minute and field a few questions.



So grab your shepherd's crook and head out to the pasture as we have another TGN Interview.
So, the "Greatest Four Days in Gaming" is coming up in just a little under 1 month. GenCon is always a good time. I, along with my fearless reporter Spencer and our intrepid cameraman Jonathan, will be there covering the event from every angle possible.



Of course, we want to get as many interviews and demos and such in as possible. So I get to the crux of this post: Do you have a game company and are you going to be at GenCon? If so, we'd love to stop by and talk, saving the conversation for posterity either on video or in the traditional written interview. We'd love to try out your games and share the experience with our readers. Have a big announcement at the show? We'd love to hear about it.
But obviously we can't be everywhere at once (sometimes it's hard to just be in one place at once), so we'd love to schedule ahead as much as possible. So drop me a line at Polar_Bear@tabletopgamingnews.com and we can figure out the best time to meet up with you and your company. I look forward to hearing from you.
When getting together materials for our recent review of Ascension: Rise of Vigil from the lovely folks over at Stone Blade Entertainment, it was offered to have a chat with Ascension's creator and Stone Blade Entertainment's founder, Justin Gary. Since, as I'd mentioned in the review, Ascension is my favorite game that exists right now, I was thrilled at the chance of talking about the game with its creator.



So here we have an interview with Justin Gary, creator of Ascension and founder of Stone Blade Entertainment.



Spencer, our intrepid Action News Team Field Reporter, talked with Kevin Clark while at the CoolMiniOrNot Expo. They discuss Wrath of Kings and Zombicide. Fun times.

Continuing our series from the CoolMiniOrNot Expo, here's the TGN Interview with Mike Shinall, Brand Manager for Dark Age Games.

Tabletop Gaming News unleashed our newest member of the Action News Team, Reporter Spencer, on the CoolMiniOrNot Expo. We'll be posting interviews from the show all week. Here's the first one where Spencer interviews Derek Osborne, Director of Business for CMON.

Note: You can spot me in the background of one of the shots, but I'm not going to tell you which.

Privater Press Business Director Will stopped and talked with our roving reporter Bo while at PAX East (yes, we kept Bo busy while there). Here's the interview:

Randall Bills from Catalyst Game Labs was kind enough to talk to Bo, our roving TGN Reporter, while at PAX East. We promised we'd post this, and here it is.

Steve Jackson Games also was gracious enough to talk with Bo, one of the two roving reports of the TGN Action News Team at PAX East. We get a look into the current status of Ogre, the future of Munchkin and even a demo of Castellan.

Mercs Miniatures was kind enough to stop and talk with Bo, one of our intrepid roving reporters on the TGN Action News Team while at PAX East and talk some about their Myth game. (check out their Kickstarter here)

Loka: Fantasy Chess, from Mantic, has 12 days to go up on Kickstarter. The creator of the game, Alessio Cavatore, recently sat down with TGN and had a chat about his history with Chess and a bit of the history behind his relation with Mantic Games.



And so here we go for another TGN Interview!


We've got a great exclusive interview with Guillotine Games about the upcoming Toxic City Mall Expansion, and also Prison Outbreak - a full standalone game!

Check out the whole interview after the break!

As you more-than-likely know, Mike McVey has a Kickstarter Campaign going on to raise funds for his Sedition Wars board game. It's doing great, having just crossed the $100k mark, still with 29 days to go. They've even just put up a new stretch goal for an alternate-sculpt.

Well, Mike was kind enough to talk with us some about the project and some other stuff recently and we'd like to share it with you in our ever-continuing TGN Interview series.
