In this episode of the CoinWeek Podcast, we depart from our normal fare and talk to David Schirduan, a game designer, whose new game "Clink" uses coins to determine play outcomes and as "in-game" money. We discuss the tactile quality of coins, which coins players should use in the game's "Old West" setting, and the pseudo-philosophy of flippism. Charles also reveals that if he was a game designer, he'd openly embrace paid DLC. It's called capitalism, folks!
