The Action Points Podcast! Episode 86: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and Matt Dunstan

In this episode:

I interview Matt Dunstan, designer of Relic Runners, and co-designer of Empire Engine and (Kennerspiel 2015 nominee!) Elysium. We talk about the different board game design communities in the UK and Australia, and also about how to work with other designers. In the weekly round-up, we chat about Netrunner regionals, dedicated hate cards, banned cards, Age of Ultron and the trailer for Supergirl. It’s all very exciting, so please make sure to fasten you seatbelts and enjoy the show!
