Jon Manker, ION's Lead Game Designer, had a great time talking to The Family Gamers in their Podcast's latest episode (#307) where they talk on the theme “Games based on reality”. Pax Viking, Vendel to Viking and a new announcement: Pax Viking Junior, are the games included in the discussion for the most part, a few others are mentioned as well of course.
Anitra and Andrew at Family Gamer's also appreciate games that allow all gamers to play them regardless of age or experience level. This is in tune with ION's ambition to spread boardgaming to a broader audience. When Jon design his games he always try to think about this aspect and of including paths into the game rules via alternatives and intro version in the rules. Pax Viking, and its prequel Vendel to Viking (coming to Kickstarter this Fall) are some examples of games with options in regards to difficulty levels.
