Today we have a great guest on the show and I am really excited to learn more about his game. He is the designer of AracKhan Wars, a strategy card game that just got successfully funded with more than 100k on Kickstarter last month. It’s a highly strategic game about card placement, positioning, and maximizing the potential of card combos. At first glance, it reminded me of Magic mixed with Summoner Wars and Warhammer (all of those are games I really love). In addition, the game also has incredible art and graphic design and therefore looks really really appealing. That’s why I am very excited to talk to Robert Palmer today, the designer of Arackhan Wars.

Some of the topics we discussed:

  • AracKhan Wars gameplay
  • Importance of constraints in games
  • Tracking statistics in playtests and making adjustments based on it
  • Preparing for a Kickstarter campaign
  • Stretch Goals
