Draft Mechanic Episode 30: Stephen Buonocore interview, Dragon & Flagon on tap, Dice City & Viticulture
Time to storm the castle! Today we’ve got the Podfather, the founder and president of Stronghold Games, Stephen Buonocore joining us to talk games and beer! Stephen talks about his fall lineup, games he’s taking to Essen, talks about the Stronghold origin story, how he started working with the Engelsteins, and also we get to hear about Buonocore’s beer history as he’s a big craft beer fan as well. A match made in heaven! Or at least, a match made at the tavern! Speaking of taverns (great segue, I know, I’m very proud of it) - we’re putting the new Stronghold release The Dragon & Flagon on tap! We’re also going to talk about a few Kickstarter oddities as well as discuss our recent plays of Dice City and Viticulture. It’s a podcast you can’t refuse!
