Edge of Darkness is a card driven strategy game that employs the card crafting system in support of a fully realized Euro style board game, set within a richly conceived fantasy setting. We talk to John about the genesis of his design, the process of taking his design from concept to reality, and everything in between. This in-depth conversation focuses upon the design of a single board game, exploring everything from design philosophy, prototyping, play-testing, presenting an idea to publishers, and bringing a a design to production (or in this case, kickstarter).
