Episode #8 – Yakitori


Hungry? Nothing quite fills a stomach like Japanese street food… and lasers? In episode 8, we speak with Christopher Urinko, the founder of Daft Concepts, and the manufacturer of the game, Yakitori.

We discuss lasers, why Settlers of Catan is such a popular gateway game, why game designers should always start with the theme, and why working directly with the manufacturer can be so beneficial… and did I mention lasers? We conclude with the game design challenge, with Chris’s rendition of Competing Haunted Houses.

Listen to the podcast below, or watch the extended interview on the Your Table’s on Fire! Youtube channel. Chris is full of ancient Japanese wisdom and knows more about lasers than any man save Luke Skywalker.
