Come absorb 15 years of collectible card game design experience as Ben Brode (Hearthstone, MARVEL SNAP) blasts card game knowledge direct from his brain into your ears and eyes. Hearthstone created the digital card game genre, and MARVEL SNAP took it in a whole new direction with three-minute battles, locations, and by straight jacking the doubling cube from Backgammon. Ben Brode learned a ton from his decade working on Hearthstone, and even more from the five years he's been working on SNAP. He's going to try and get as much of that into 60 minutes as is physically possible. ALSO! There will be tales of glory and stories of woe as he dissects the good, bad, and ugly of designing the card game everyone's talking about. Will this talk be delivered entirely via freestyle rap? No, but wow wouldn't that be rad.
