We were just in Albury for BorderCon, an annual board game convention that attracts plenty of board gamers from the surrounding states.  While we were there, we caught up with fellow game designers/publishers Joel Finch and David Harding to chat about what they’ve been up to.  We also talk about games that we played at the con, setting up consecutive playtests and other conventions coming up where you might find us.
