Who did not cross the men wearing sombrero during a game event ? These are the men from Repos Productions wearing these hats. Today it is one of the co-founders of RProd who will respond to 7 questions: Thomas Provoost.

This European publisher from Brussels is known for its selection of over 30 games which included, among other huge hits like 7 Wonders, Rampage, Crazy Poker and most recently Concept.
So are the 7 questions for Thomas Provoost.
1 – How old were you when you played your first board game and what was it ?
« The game that changed my gaming life was Supergang when I was 12 years old. »
2 – Why and how did you decide to edit publish board games ?
« Because of passion and desire, Time’s Up! seemed to be such a good game for us so we decided to embark on the adventure then we loved it. 🙂 «
3 – What are your 3 favorite games company and why ?
« Favorite, it is difficult to answer because I have more than 3. I will talk about my 3 hits of the moment.
Twilight Struggle because it is a perfect mix between a wargame, an ameritash game and a German style game.
7 wonders that yet after countless party (over 600) always gives me so much pleasure.
Avalon, as it is the best game in the style of Werewolves of Miller’s Hollow. »
4 – For you it is the best combination to be published / edited successfully?
« Work, question yourself and simplify his game. »
5 – How do you process to publish a game ?
« If we like the prototype and that we think we can sell it, we start the editing work. Some games need a year to be successful other more. The edition is a long creative process that we share with the author to obtain the best possible game for us. »
6 – What advice would you give to someone wishing to be published / edited ?
« Be creative, think differently and come give us your best prototypes. 🙂 «
7- Could you give us some information on your next project ?
« We are currently working with numerous prints of Masquerade and Concept.
Otherwise, we are finalizing the extension of 7 wonders: Babel and the extension of Masquerade.
The other project that we strongly want is to reboot of the license from Cash n Guns. Ludovic Maublanc has made subtle changes that make the game even better and funnier. Kovalic for the illustrations, it will be a killer. 🙂 «
