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.
