Two of our favorite things at Game on Girl cross paths today: tabletop and video games. Simon Berman from Privateer Press joins us to discuss the Kickstarter for WARMACHINE: Tactics. Tactics takes Privateer Press’s popular tabletop miniatures game and translates it to digital format. If that wasn’t awesome enough, the solo player campaign has a kick ass female lead, Lt. Allison Jakes!
Joining us for this episode is Game on Girl writer and WARMACHINE veteran player, Mark Schjoll, who also shares what he’s WRaPing this week (Watching, Reading, and Playing).
Let us know what you think of the show and go support the WARMACHINE: Tactics Kickstarter which wraps up in FOUR days on August 10th! $20 gets you the digital verson of the game.
Until next time, game on!
