VR Logo 300Welcome back to Vox Republica, the Cardboard Republic Podcast!

We post new episodes every Thursday, with each episode being about 25 – 35 minutes long.

DESCRIPTION: This week, Ryan and Erin discuss the nature of episodic game content release models before having on the talkative folks of Cardboard Fortress and their little game called Resistor.

GUEST: Anthony Amato and Nicole Kline



  • The recent week saw a wide array of responses after word that T.I.M.E Stories planned on releases quarterly episodic scenario content while only having one within the base game. We debate what it means for the hobby.


  • It’s Resistor time! We have on the designers of the October Spotlight game and get a little carried away discussing topics including:
    • The early days of Resistor and the changes that went into it
    • How it caught the attention of Level 99 Games
    • What lies next for Cardboard Fortress
    • Their reflections on Resistor’s campaign to this point
    • And more!
