In this edition of the ongoing Pandemic Chronicles, Matt Leacock and I talk about playtesting and games from our childhood. But not playtesting games from our childhood. Alan Turing and Pandemic tournaments somehow also come into the discussion.
Matt Leacock and I get to continue talking about game development, Pandemic, and Era: Medieval Age in the most amazing Greek restaurant ever. And people bring us food. What could be better?
I met Matt Leacock at Evvia, a wonderful Greek restaurant in downtown Palo Alto, a veritable melting pot of the techno-elite and hipster-weird. Matt is, of course, synonymous with co-op game design, having created the classic Pandemic in its many and varied forms, both legacy and otherwise.
