Skyweaver is a game, Eddie Fear is a man. And yet, this podcast episode with the man from the game, is so much more than you are imagining.
Token Gamer and NFT Insider have decided to combine forces to launch a weekly podcast, Mint One (formerly WAX Lyrical). John Nichols of NFT Insider and I will discuss a new topic every week, as well as feature special guests. If there’s a topic you’d like us to cover, make sure you let us know through the Token Gamer Discord or Twitter, or the NFT Insider Discord or Twitter.
In last week’s episode, we jumped onto the hot topic of cold wallets, discussing Ledger’s disruptive news. This week, we have a special guest once again!
Mint One Podcast, Episode 66: Eddie Fear, Game Director at Skyweaver
My fondness for Skyweaver is no secret. It is a staggeringly good TCG by anyone’s standards, with arguably the best mobile app version of a game I’ve ever experienced. As I mention in this episode, Skyweaver mobile helped keep me awake as a newborn slept on my chest, and for that alone, it has a special place in this gamer’s heart.
Eddie Fear (which is a name so cool it can’t possibly be real) is the Game Director of Skyweaver, but also a person with an unparalleled background in TCGs and gaming. In fact, there are few people who can claim more experience in the trading card genre as he was there at the birth of the Magic: The Gathering and has been around TCGs ever since, both physical and digital.
This episode is a meandering journey through many topics, from the challenges of game balance and Eddie’s philosophy toward it, to Eddie’s machine-level knowledge of NBA statistics. It is one of the most relaxed episodes we’ve had with a guest, but don’t let that fool you, it’s rammed full of insight.
We’d like to ask that if you listen to us on Apple Podcasts and/or Spotify, you rate us five stars and leave us a review if you enjoy Mint One. This helps both our podcast and the blockchain gaming ecosystem as a whole!
