Rob Daviau interview part 2

Here is part two of the #boardgamersask crowd sourced interview with THE Rob Daviau:


@PhilGrossVoice @robdaviaugamer If you could create a 'dream' board/digital hybrid game, how would it work? DVD doesn't count :-P #boardgamersask
@robdaviaugamer @PhilGrossVoice Too short a space to get into it but I have my feelers out in different places. #boardgamersask

@BoardGamersAsk Just a quick reminder, make sure you use the hashtag #boardgamersask so Rob can see your question.. see the answers in the same way ;0)

@reldnahcire @robdaviaugamer @RMBLees @BoardGamersAsk OMG Legacy Doctor Who Time Travel game...(travel in time, ignore one sticker...) #boardgamersask
@robdaviaugamer @reldnahcire @RMBLees @BoardGamersAsk Yeah. Exactly. #boardgamersask

@watcher_969 @BoardGamersAsk @robdaviaugamer Is it harder/easier for testing outside of a big brother company on shoulder? #BoardGamersAsk
@robdaviaugamer @watcher_969 @BoardGamersAsk Way harder. My biggest delay and problem right now is regular playtesting. That's on me to fix. #boardgamersask

@64ozGames @robdaviaugamer I am offended you would oversimplify in a Tweet! #boardgamersask
@reldnahcire @64ozGames @robdaviaugamer o16n is the new a11y? #boardgamersask #boardgamehour #insideJoke #unfortunately

@64ozGames What do you say to board gamers like me who would go into shock with 'destroying' their game like in Risk Legacy? #boardgamersask
@robdaviaugamer @64ozGames It's not for everyone. Play different games or get someone to buy it for the group. Or go in together. #boardgamersask
@64ozGames @robdaviaugamer Does that usually stop them from twitching on the floor? #boardgamersask

@watcher_969 @BoardGamersAsk @robdaviaugamer Do you spend most time playing own prototypes or get to play variety of other games? #BoardGamersAsk
@robdaviaugamer @watcher_969 @BoardGamersAsk These days I play my own prototypes almost exclusively, which I don't like but how it is. #boardgamersask

@reldnahcire Did anyone else do their homework? If not, check out this video #boardgamersask http://t.co/xHFFQxUvK9

@reldnahcire #boardgamersask What prompted you to start designing your first game? How old were you?
@robdaviaugamer @reldnahcire I've always been into rpgs but designed my first board game AFTER I got the job at Hasbro. Stupid lucky I am. #boardgamersask

@BoardGamersAsk A big thank you to @robdaviaugamer for being our guest on #boardgamersask today.. He's a big name so we are very lucky!
@robdaviaugamer @BoardGamersAsk I am? #boardgamersask
@BoardGamersAsk Yes!

@trichy Can you think of a way that kingmaking could be a positive game mechanic? #boardgamersask
@robdaviaugamer @trichy Design a game where king making gives you a big advantage at the start of the next game. Heir to the throne. #boardgamersask

@andy_lenox What game idea do you have that keeps trying to get in the way of Seafall development. #boardgamersask
@robdaviaugamer @andy_lenox Billable work. Have to pay the bills first. Also, inventions for the mass market. #boardgamersask

@reldnahcire @robdaviaugamer @BoardGamersAsk Everyone who comes on #boardgamersask gets a bigger name in my book #ForThePeople!

@RMBLees @robdaviaugamer #boardgamersask do you think the next evolution of Legacy games will be Legacy games that can be “reset” and replayed?
@robdaviaugamer @RMBLees I don't really know. Those are campaign games, which already exist. I'm really curious to see. #boardgamersask

@watcher_969 @BoardGamersAsk @robdaviaugamer What game idea would you like to play with after Seafall which is a Legacy idea expansion? #BoardGamersAsk
@robdaviaugamer @watcher_969 @BoardGamersAsk You'll see. #boardgamersask

@watcher_969 @BoardGamersAsk @robdaviaugamer What RPGs? Are you still playing? #BoardGamersAsk
@robdaviaugamer @watcher_969 @BoardGamersAsk These days I play a few times a year with friends. Mostly indie one offs. Miss D&D. #boardgamersask

We will post the next part tomorrow folks.. See you then!
