Episode 51 – Doug Bass & Garden Dice

garden-dice-2Sometimes, the best games are the ones that are simple in game play but deceptively layered in strategy. This week, we talk with Doug Bass creator of Garden Dice which is one such game. He tells us about the creative process, finding community on Kickstarter, and what it’s like to see your dream come to fruition.

Make sure to like Doug’s company website on Facebook, Meridae Games, so you can keep up to date with the expansion sets that are coming out for this great game. Also, at the end of the show I mention friends of mine, Rachael Richmond (age 11) and her dad, Bruce, who are creating a family board game called The Potions Game. I got a chance over the summer to play this innovative and engaging game and can’t wait to see how it progresses. Please show them some love and “like” their page as well.

We’d love to hear what you think about this episode, especially if you’ve had a chance to play Garden Dice. How do you deal with that pesky rabbit?

Regina is the founder and lead ambassador of The Geek Embassy. Studying and writing about geeks and geek culture is Regina’s favorite thing to do when she’s not reading student papers, dancing an excessive amount of calories away, or chasing after her daughter. Inclined towards mobile and social gaming online, Regina also loves a good round of 7 Wonders, Qwirkle, Small World, or Lords of Waterdeep. Someday, she hopes to actually take part in a D&D campaign so she can officially “roll” a character and role play her as a devious, highly intelligent mischief maker, which would be nothing like she is in real life.

  1. Fun interview: it sounds like a fun game. It's great to hear other people's stories on their game development. And so many references to other games that I want to check out now! BTW, thanks for the shout out at the end, Regina. That was a surprise.
