The Periscope: Mayan Curse
Joe Slack from Crazy Like a Box Games joins us to talk about their newest crowdfunding project Mayan Curse!
Explore the secret passage to the ancient temple, collect the most knowledge, and escape before you’re trapped forever!
As you traverse deeper, you’ll discover stelae (Mayan monuments) that increase your knowledge (which is what you need to win). But the greatest secret waits for you at the very top of the temple—that is, if you can reach it and get back to the entrance in time. If all 3 of the temple’s boulders reach the entrance before you return, you’ll be sealed inside forever, and none of your knowledge will matter!
Check out the campaign!

Entertaining and informative!
This podcast straddles the line between being game design/ designer focused and being game focused, and I’m here for it! They always get a lot out of their guests and the format is short and to the point.
Entertaining and fun, the hosts do an excellent job diving into the “why” of board games, along with sharing fun stories and experiences!
Great guests = great show
These are a very enjoyable listen. Some really impressive guests you’ve gotten to come on the show so far. Keep them coming.
