Someone Has Died Interview w/ Richard Ruane

I sat down with Gather Round Games Adi Slepack (Lead Game Designer) and Liz Roche (Designer and Community Manager) to talk about what makes this warm, light-hearted game about such a grim topic so compelling.

Spotlight | Lucian Kahn Interview w/ Richard Ruane

Creator of Dead Friend Roleplaying Game Lucian Kahn is a brooklyn based independent game designer and began gaming at Twenty Sided Store in 2016. Earlier this year, he published his roleplaying game Dead Friend a Game of Necromancy. I love the energy of a full D&D table and had never really gotten excited about two-player games, but Dead Friend converted me. I caught up with Lucian to talk about Dead Friend, and his upcoming Halloween Special Spotlight Event on SAT 10/27 @ 1p & 5p. Richard: So let's start by telling me about you and your design work... Lucian: Just in general? Richard: Yep...
