Interview With Star Realms Artist Antonis Papantonio

Today I had the pleasure to sit down with White Wizard Games’s artist, and cover artist for Star Realms: Rescue Run, Antonis Papantonio. He did a great job on the book cover, and also designed the cards Chancellor Hartman, Commodore Zhang and Screecher for the Star Realms Deckbuilding Game. He’s done numerous other cards for WWG’s Epic and Hero Realms and also some art for the game Among The Stars.

Of course, what’s lost in that, is that you don’t get that rush from cracking a pack of cards, finding that sweet money card or card you want.   Continue reading

Chatting with NTY Bestseller Todd McCaffrey

I’ve wanted to do a fireside chat, casual talk show for a long time, and on Saturday, I’m going to be doing my first test.
