Hi, all -

Rob Daviau came to my campus two weeks ago and gave a talk about legacy games and Pandemic Legacy in particular. I'm happy to finally share the video with you:



Thanks so much to Rob for taking the time to visit campus and give this talk (he also did a workshop with students in my gaming seminar and gave them feedback on their game design projects).

Enjoy!

i have been super on the fence about Legacy games because of weird OCD kind of things like not being able to explore all of the options, or 'it only changes up to 15 times, then that's it....'
also i have bad handwriting


but anyway, after watching this, i'm sold. not that he made a compelling argument to convince me per se, he just cleared up my (probably) misconception about what actually goes on and helped alleviate my concerns about the permanency of stuff. it also helped me to realise that it is actually right up my ally because i like being able to 'level up' and progress (like in things like Mice and Mystics)

Can someone who's watched it tell me if there's any spoilers in it? (Beyond anything you'd find in the rule book?)

i watched most of it, and there are no real spoilers. he goes over the basic mechanics of the game and gives an example of something everyone does first, but that's it.

he vaguely talks about other kinds of mechanics, but nothing specific

As Andrew mentioned, I can confirm the talk is essentially spoiler free (for both Risk Legacy and Pandemic Legacy). He talks about the kinds of things that legacy games do, but no specifics that would give anything away.

It's a good question and useful for others to know. I'll add a note about this to the description on YouTube.
