Episode 13 - Idea Dump

September 7, 2016

In this episode I ramble on. A lot. I ramble on for a while. You should check it out.

I may not have had the most coherence, but I did manage the cleanest sounding audio yet...maybe. Give me your feedback on that!

Episode 12 - PhantomCast Rising (Again)

August 31, 2016

The podcast rises! Again! After a new contract change I have a daily commute again. That means if I can use my travel time to write my game design stuff down, I will spout it into the aether for all you fine people again.

Today I talk about a few designs I have kicking around in the old noodle and how my tabletop RPG obsession has been spinning into my design work. Mostly I just drone on about game designs, but check it out anyway.
Also, this one is out on a Wednesday. I think that is new, I forgot most of my old release schedule, and will be adjusting to a new one. Keep an eye out for new episodes by adding us in your podcatcher of choice.

Episode 11 - Rise of the Phantom

April 25, 2016

Like a Phoenix from the ashes I arise once more to spout out my misguided insight. This week I talk even more Tabletop RPGs. Rules-light systems, the merging of that concept and board games, and how play by post works for me. Check it out, or don't. Either way, I'm back, baby.

Episode 10 - When Story Met Mechanics

October 13, 2015
Having had a recent position change this episode is up a bit late, and I didn't have any new projects to discuss. So I go on a misguided insight rant about story and mechanics as it relates to both board games and tabletop RPGs.

Episode 9 - Of Dice and Action Points

October 5, 2015
In this week's PhantomCast I discuss more clarifications on Tavern Dice. I also discuss my own fan-made mashup called One Night Ultimate Sheriff. I also do a very quick review of Monza! the children's color-matching racing game. It is quite good. Last I forgot I also wanted to talk again about Cash and Grab, an early prototype of mine I have been finding new ideas for.

Episode 8 - Rambling and a Review

September 29, 2015

Sorry for being so late with the post for this. As I mentioned on Twitter we had no kid in the house this weekend so I got SOO much sleep. It was fantastic.

This weeks episode features much of my signature rambling, on my creative process, and a review of Tiny Epic Galaxies. My new favorite little space game. I will be posting a more in-depth review on my blog eventually. Check this out, and I look forward to talking more game design next week. I also hint at a giveaway that is indeed coming true. Check out more details here.

Episode 7 - Off The Shelf

September 21, 2015

In this episode I am already pulling a game back after shelving it only two weeks ago. Potions Class is getting a makeover, manicure, pedicure, the whole works. Check out this episode if you want to hear anything and everything Potions Class related, in addition to the new version of it, Tavern Dice.

This whole episode is decidedly dicey.

Episode 6 - A Continued Fascination For RPGs

September 14, 2015
Building upon last weeks episode I choose to openly ramble on about tabletop RPGs for nearly 40 minutes. I discuss the things I think make some systems just primed for a more entertaining time, as well as where I would like my proposed system to land on the spectrum of RPGs. I also seem to exude a love for the End of the World RPG system from Fantasy Flight Games. Enjoy!

Episode 5 - I’ve Made A Huge Mistake

September 8, 2015
This week I talk all about RPG systems, podcasts, and my own ill conceived thoughts on making my own. Listen as I make the rookie mistake of biting off more than I can chew as I talk all RPG all the time. You can even hear my own misguided insight into micro-RPGs and one-shot style systems. Buckle up, and I'm very sorry.

Episode 4 - Thrift Store Design Challenge

August 31, 2015

On this installment of the PhantomCast I ramble on a bit about the #ThriftStoreDesignChallenge I made up and started doing, as well as more on Dicey Dungeon Delve. For my misguided insight I tackle two topics. What to do with feedback, and how my games go from twinklings in my mind meats to prototype and, if I'm really lucky, to being sold.
