As a designer, he created Pixel Lincoln, Pretense, Wild Cats (with Marty Cobb), Maximum Throwdown, and Storyteller Cards - just to name a few. Guys, thanks for sitting down to talk with me today!
Jay: Thanks for having us, Doug!
Absolutely! So, to get this started, tell us a little bit about Cunning Folk, Jay.
Jay: Cunning Folk is a micro-game of bluffing and deduction. Players are investigating the small town of Ipswich for witches, trying to throw each other off the scent, so they can be first to expose an entire coven.
Jay: The secret that makes a 13-card game work is positioning the players to play mind games with each other, and then just getting out of the way.
