|A Game of Thrones LCG | Published 02 June 2009|
The reach of the A Game of Thrones: The card Game goes as far as Poland for an interview with AGoT Lead Developer Nate French by Rebel Times magazine's Arkady Saulski. In this interview, Arkady probes Nate on the LCG™ format, the A Game of Thrones LCG™ design process, and some of Nate's favorite characters (you can guess which House they're from).
To read the interview in English, you can download this PDF (Thanks Rebel Times for sending us the translation!)

One minor correction: Rebel Times gives Nate's title as Production Manager. Nate is actually an Associate Game Developer, and a good one, at that.

We can tell he's a lannister. They get all the shiny toys ;)
I would prefer "Basterds of the Sun"
Well as one of the writers of RT i may say - we did all issue in english so soon You all can download it and see what job we do ;)
I completely agree with compliments for the interview and absolutely to change name of Martell expansion :-)
Nice interview, and glad it founds its way over to us. Thanks!
Someone still needs to poke Nate in the eye and let him know that "Kings of the Sun" is a very un-nedly title for the Martell expansion, and should be corrected ASAP. :-P Princes of the Sun, is clearly my suggestion.
