Mike Mulvhill is one of the true giants of Wizkids Pirates CSG history, having designed the majority of the game pieces! He was heavily involved in numerous aspects of the game from Spanish Main through Rise of the Fiends, and helped with certain aspects on Fire and Steel. The game was basically his in terms of game design, concept creation, game mechanics and gameplay concepts, as well as rules, factions, and the specific individual game pieces.
Questions of the Day:
(Ben) What is your favorite Q&A segment of this discussion so far? (across all parts)
(Mike) Is there something in the game that you initially didn’t like, that now you like more or at least accept?
Do you put the pennant flags facing towards the bow or the stern?
