Ep 82: Reiner Knizia

Amber and Marc are here to talk about perhaps the most prolific board game designer of all time: Reiner Knizia. Going strong since the early 90's, Knizia is a master of making a game no more complex than needed. His games are straightforward and clear--something we see less and less of. Weirdly, this episode is not straightforward, with some truly odd tangents and rants.

32:20 -- Babylonia
36:39 -- Abstract isn't the opposite of thematic
39:30 -- My City
43:20 -- Things get...weird
48:02 -- Modern Art
