Craig Marks, first appeared on Episode 94
@botchgames
www.botchgames.wordpress.com

1. Introduce yourself. Where are you from? What should listeners know about you?

My name is Craig Marks and I live in Northeast Ohio with my wife Erin, son Tyler, and daughter Mallory. I'm the host of the Botch Games Podcast, a show about board games.

2. What games or types of games are you interested in?

I'll play anything once. Well mostly anything.

3. Do you have a favorite game or games you enjoy most?

My number one game is Mottainai, but mainly I enjoy anything that brings people to the table. For me, it's about the people, not the games.

4. What are some of the most memorable experiences have you had with tabletop board games in the past?

Again, it's about the people, so my memorable experiences are focused around getting together with friends and family to play a game together.

5. What is the focus of your WDYPTW segment?

My segment is focused around roleplaying games. Every other week, I look at a different system, mainly to let listeners know there are more games than just D&D and Pathfinder.

My sons name starts with a T and then is followed by some letters.

All of my main episodes past episode 53 are my favorite because they're the new format which I am in love with

Crag Crag Crag, he has put up with me for the Gloomiest Episode ever of his own show.

Craig joined us to talk RPGs and I am absolutely delighted to have him on the show doing that, the only problem is, I don't have a local RPG group to play with so each time he talks about a game or system, I sit there and think that I should pick it up and try it, but then I realize all I would be doing is reading the books and learning the systems and never playing them. But that's okay, I do love to listen to him tell us all about them.

Craig joined us back on Episode 94!



So, let's all say hi to Craig and go ahead and ask him anything!

Always a pleasure to have you on, Brandon, and even more of a pleasure to RP with you over Skype.

Also, seriously, no more questions? I'm wounded

If you could only play three RPGs, which three would you pick?

Favorite dish to prepare is chicken francaise. It's such a classic recipe and it's amazing how many get it wrong. It's what I order at restaurants as a benchmark for their abilities. I guess I should also mention that I'm a classically trained French chef... that would give this question context

Are we talking systems or games?

If systems, then

1) d10 world of darkness as so many of my favorite settins take place in this system: exalted, scion, werewolf, etc.
2) Apocalypse world engine as I'm completely falling in love with the simplicity of play and the free form storytelling that occurs.
3) ffg Star Wars system, like edge of the empire. Crunchy but plenty of story telling opportunities and of course I'm in love with the setting material.

If we're talking specific games:

1) fiasco-it's never wrong, it's always a blast.
2) exalted-it's my first love and has never let me down
3) Edge of the empire-its everything I've always wanted from a Star Wars game
