Gen Con 2018: Jason Kotarski – Green Couch Games
Nick was able to grab Jason Kotarski from Green Couch Games and talk about what they’ve been doing at Gen Con.
Before the Earth Explodes – the newest offering from Green Couch Games. Designed by Daryl Andrews and Adrian Adamescu, who also designed Sagrada. Two player head-to-head, rock-paper-scissors style play with four ways to win.
Best Treehouse Ever: Forest of Fun (we spoke to Jason about this when it was on Kickstarter), which should be out very soon!
Into the Black Forest – designed by Jason Slingerland , who was responsible for Unreal Estate. Trick-taking and area control; coming to Kickstarter this fall.
Filler (Nick also talked to Jonathan Chaffer, the designer) – a twist on deck-building with some action selection. Each card has multiple uses: times, ingredients, recipes, and scoring bonuses. 15-20 minutes, for 1-6 players!
“Great little games that make great big connections.”
Jason tells us a little bit about Green Couch Games. They make games that bridge the gap between casual players and more serious gamers. All their games are family-friendly, bright and colorful, at impulse-purchase prices.
Nick and Jason both talk a bit about Fidelitas, the very first Green Couch Games release.
Don’t forget Jason’s Facebook group & associated podcast, “20 Minutes of Filler“.
