You might know Fred best as the face of Homo Ludens, his historical- and wargame-focused Youtube channel. What you didn’t know, however, is that I’m pulling a double switcheroo on you today!
Format Games specialise in small, lightweight party-style games. I met Laurence at this year’s UK Games Expo. This is a dive into the people and their games.

Cogito Ergo Meeple are the brains behind the Philosophia titles Dare To Be Wise and Floating World, and the upcoming Sci-fi epic, Solar 175. I had the chance to grab some time with them to ask a few questions about the team, their games, and their taste in biscuits.

Naturally, I couldn’t let the chance slip to talk about their hottest news from the last week or so, the announcement of a tie-in with Paradox Interactive’s smash hit game, Prison Architect.
