Darren Reckner top left and Jason Hager of Durdle Games join Christopher High of Board Again Gaming podcast via Discord video for season 2 episode 6

I met Darren Reckner online during the pandemic and he was enthusiastic about Unmatched then. I would hazard to say his enthusiasm has grown as he and his co-designer Jason Hager have now made the first Unmatched co-op game through Restoration Games. You can check out my interview by watching or listening.
