Board with Life Interview

Wednesday, August 27th, 2014

Back in March when we attended T.A.B.L.E. we had the chance to sit down with Donald from Board with Life. We talked about game design, our influences, what got us started, how we created Dead Panic and Munchkin Panic and embroidering. That’s right embroidering. It’s a great interview and a fun chance to peek behind the curtain and see how our brains work.

Rue Morgue Magazine calls Dead Panic “fast-paced and fun”

Photo of Dead Panic review in Rue MorgueIn the latest issue of Rue Morgue Magazine (Issue 144), a publication dedicated to the horror genre in culture and entertainment,  Dead Panic gets a trial and some really nice compliments.

Dead Panic is given a half-page review in the Play Dead feature in which Mike Beardsall talks about the mechanics of the game, comments that “strategy and communication are key…”, calls it “fast-paced and fun” and ultimately gives it 3.5 out of 5 skull & crossbones.

He found the rules a bit complicated at first, but later states, “While the rules may take several play-throughs to master, the sense of panic you feel when an army of zombie tokens closes in around you certainly makes the learning curve worthwhile.”

That cinematic feel is exactly what Justin was aiming for when he designed Dead Panic, so we call that a mark in the Win category!

You can purchase Rue Morgue Magazine Issue 144 at your local newsstand or bookstore. It’s got Godzilla on the cover! (Hint: There’s a coupon code inside for a discount on Dead Panic through our newly updated web store!)
