    Check this out!

    Pirates was a success in every definition of the term; the game was an experiment designed to attract a certain Disney license, and we didn’t know it would sell nearly as well as it did.

    O_O   This is pretty cool to hear, especially after Mike Selinker talked on the podcast about Jordan Weisman’s original inspiration for the game.  We have The Curse of the Black Pearl to thank even more than we realized!  (and Gore Verbinski/etc as a result)

    Incredibly enough, the interview was published on September 14th 2009, the same day that NECA acquired Wizkids!!  O_O

    Cool to see this too:

    In terms of my favorite other WizKids game though it’s definitely Pirates. I wrote a good deal of the card fiction for several of the expansions so I’m personally invested in it, but the mechanics were great and it just had a sheer joy and fun factor that is missing from a lot of miniatures games.

    I have reached out to Jason Mical in case he’d like to be on the podcast.

    That’s pretty cool and it would be awesome to hear an interview with Jason
