Cynthia Celeste Miller, game designer, role playing game author and President of Spectrum Games will be joining us today to answer your questions about her new game, Urban Manhunt, as well as any other questions you might have regarding her work.
Cynthia's new game, Urban Manhunt is a tabletop mini game with a twist - instead of player vs player combat, you race against each other to eliminate the most criminals in a prison city. Another twist is that you only need one miniature which you provide yourself, keeping this price of this game well below the $100 giant box full of plastic that we gamers have come to expect.
In addition to her new game, Cythina is the author of several role playing games, including On the Air, which emulates a 1930's radio series; Cartoon Action Hour; Slasher Flick; The Big Crime; Tacky, Tawdry and Tastless: the Reality Show RPG. Those are just to name a few. Just go to the Spectrum Games website or DriveThru RPG to see them all.
Personally I have dozens of questions, but I want to give our reader's a chance to ask theirs. Just ask you question in the comments section below this article and Cynthia will be stopping by to answer them and talk to us.
I am, however, going to kick us off with my first question. Tabletop miniature gaming seems to be quite a departure from role playing games. What inspired you to tackle a whole different genre of gaming?
