Ryan Lesser is in the third Chair! Ryan has been helping build great rhythm games (Rockband, Dance Central) at Harmonix for years. And he's also designed and released High Heavens, an innovative two player strategy game.
Since we've got Ryan on the show we thought we'd talk about something common to both video games and board games, the user experience. How does his video game experience impact the user experience in board games he designs and plays.
Later we dive into High Heavens. What inspired Ryan to build the game, how does it play, and what to Craig and Russ think of it?
And don't miss the exciting results of our Stronghold Games "Space Cadets: Away Missions" contest. With a special cameo from Stephen Buonocore.
