What's it all about?

Boardgame Babylon is a podcast about designer board games. The show features session reviews, "Rectangular Table Discussions" with guests and themed shows on subjects of interest to players of euro/designer/strategy games. Your host, E.R. Burgess, is a longtime writer, game player and 'redesigner' of board games who will occasionally veer off on tangents about his other passions: literature, film and music.

Okay, here's the last Q&A show from Gateway 2011 and it's with the wonderful Kevin Wilson, of Fantasy Flight Games fame. Kevin is one of those rare American designers that knows how to create a thematic game with smart mechanics that feel like they came out of the eurogame tradition. His hybrids are huge hits in our hobby and he's also a well-spoken, thoughtful commentator on the subject of game design. It was an honor to have him at Gateway and I hope you'll enjoy our conversation.
