Snap Judgments Episode 20

Top 5 Cards by Cost and Interview With Marvel Snap’s Principal Game Designer Glenn Jones

In this special anniversary episode of our podcast, we are joined by special guest Glenn Jones - Principal Game Designer of Marvel Snap!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARVEL SNAP! In honor of Marvel Snap’s one year anniversary Glazer and Roy are joined by the Principal Game Designer of Marvel Snap – Second Dinner’s own Glenn Jones (@Glenn_Jones_). Glenn was generous enough to join the podcast for not one but TWO segments!

For starters Braude (@BraudeSnap ) joins in to interview Glenn about his history as game designer, his point of view when designing Marvel Snap cards, and the present and future of our favorite game’s meta. Afterwards, Den () cuts in to help Roy, Glazer, and Glenn work through the ins and outs of the best cards in each cost slot (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6+) then narrows them down through a heated debate to a top five for each category. Hot takes and discourse abound!

Looking for a good overview of the general card pool? Hoping to improve your overall card evaluation skills? This is a great episode for you and we hope you enjoy celebrating Marvel Snap’s first birthday in Snap Judgments style!

DISCLAIMER: The opinions Glenn expresses in our “best cards” segment are only his and not those of Second Dinner. The segment is meant to be fun and informative, not definitive.
