And yes, we like Croc or you do not like him. He seldom seem condescending but this is also the middle of the game today, the same world that is rich in diversity and this is part of what makes its success …
Croc is a creator of American style games like Claustrophobia but also he is recognized as a well knowed creator of RPG (Bloodlust, C.O.P.S., …). He was also one of the first to honor in France Magic: the gathering. A lot people says he is much like a pillar of the game world in France. With Asmodee for a very long time, Croc joined a few months ago the brand new edition of Space Cowboys team with Mark Nunes and Philippe Mouret. He has his opinions about the game world which are not always shared but he has the merit of creating discussion and further opinions.
So it is with pleasure that I present you 7 questions for Mr Croc.
1 – How old were you when you played your first board game and what was it ?
« The age, I do not remember too much, but I would say 10 years old for the first TRUE game. This game was The Battle of the Little Big Horn . «
2 – Why and how did you decide to create board games ?
« To not end up unemployed . «
3 – What are your 3 favorite board games and why ?
» Why would it be a bit too long . I would say:
Car Wars , Agricola and Warmachine . «
4 – For you what is the best combination for a successful game ?
« Rules with the least possible pages. «
5 – How do you do to create a game ?
« Actually I did not create much board games . But generally I think about it and when I ‘m ready I seat in front of my screen and I write. «
6 – What advice would you give to someone wishing to create a board game ?
» Forget it. Too many games and too many game creators right now. Instead, try Star Academy. «
7 – Could you give us some information on your next project ?
« Our next projects are more » top secret » being given that nothing is finalized. But the first game of Space Cowboys will be Splendor ! A game with cards and chips that will be amazing. «
