book 01 Guest Spot on Spirit Siege Stream

This week there isn’t going to be a podcast as I was a guest on Nova Heart Beat’s twitch channel to talk and play Spirit Siege which we discussed last week.

For just about three hours, I played with Charlie Englehard and Ben Fraser as we talked about the design while trying not to get my butt kicked too hard. I will say that I did better this time than when I played against Zach Barth in Ironclad Tactics. At around 2:20:00 in, they decided to flip the script and interview me as I talked more about the origins of Game-Wisdom.

Right now I just have the Twitch video link , but once it’s posted on Youtube, I will embed the video instead.
