Gumbo Live! with Chris Strain of Kraken Games

Hey board gamers, we have had some requests to link up the original Gumbo Live! episodes here on the blog for easy reference. That’s a great idea and thanks for suggesting!

Here’s episode #3 with Chris Strain. He’s the co-designer of Asking for Trobils a great gateway to worker placement game with stunning bits and an easy-to-teach mechanism. His design studio, Kraken Games, recently inked a deal with Breaking Games to re-publish the game and it is in stores now.

Chris and BJ sit down to talk about favorite game experiences since GEN CON 50, design philosophy, favorite games, and of course Chris tries to stump the Krewe in The Envie Game. Enjoy, and leave comments if you have any questions…or comments.

Until next time, laissez les bon temps rouler!

— B.J.
