025 – Synergies and Combos in Everdell with James Wilson

In Episode 25 of the Nerdlab podcast, I chatted with James Wilson, the designer of Everdell. We talked about his journey and how he developed Everdell.

In our discussion, we have put a special focus on the design of synergies and combos.

  • What are synergies?
  • How do they differ from combos?
  • What is the best way to design synergies?
  • How many combo pieces are required?
  • What constraints are required to ensure combos do not get out of hand?

These are just a few of the questions James and I discussed in today’s show.
