Per a request, we're breaking up the interviews, I apologize for the feed clutter. 

I am leaving the original up for everyone to listen to, these separate two are mainly for folks who want to link to the interviews separately for Kickstarter Pages or personal pages. 

My apologies to both guests, I should have thought about this before and asked, but instead I did what I've always been told not to do, I assumed. 

This is our Conversation with Ryan Cowler

So this is the Mark Swanson interview about Feudum, and about Kickstarter. It also will include my thoughts at the end as well.

So, this week on the Conversation Thing we are going to do things a bit differently as we’ve got two Conversations ready to roll. First Patrick and I are going to sit down and we are going to chat with designer Ryan Cowler and talk all about his gaming life plus that new Green Couch Games title that’s over on Kickstarter, OutLawed! A game which we previewed back on Week 95, be sure to check that preview out, it really is a lot of fun to play. As of right now, September 28, 2016, OutLawed has 10 days to go in the campaign and still needs a bit over $400 to fund, so be sure to go check out the Kickstarter page for OutLawed, I will link it in the show notes.

Next up after conversing with Ryan is a conversation that I had with Mark Swanson, who has a game coming to Kickstarter on November 10th, that game is Feudum. Mark is a local, well as local as we get around here anyway, it was only a 30 minute drive or so to get to his house where I sat down and played a game of Feudum and chatted with Mark about the game and the Kickstarter. After our conversation I recorded a few minutes of my thoughts on Feudum along with a brief overview of some of the rules as I know that folks were kind of wondering how the game worked a bit.

So I hope everyone enjoys this one, we’ve got both ends of the Kickstarter game spectrum here, we’ve got the quick bluffing action of OutLawed and we’ve got that deep meaty Euro covered with Feudum.

We won’t be making a point of doing two Conversations on these episodes, this is just kind of how this fell since I did the interview with Mark on my own face to face.
