Introducing Sam

We're proud to welcome Samuel Bailey to our game design team! He's fully geared up and ready to go. What's in that pouch? Game design, that's what.

Sam is soon headed to our offices in Belgium, and has quite a gaming pedigree behind him. I recently had the chance of asking him some general questions to introduce himself. Here's Sam!

How long have you worked in the games industry?

Sam: Since almost the dawn of time in some capacity or the other. I’ve worked at a Lan Center, a boardgame store, for Fantasy Flight Games, freelance on both Tabletop games and digital games, and finally now for Abrakam!

What gaming companies have you worked for?

Sam: Fantasy Flight Games is probably the major one. While there I was a designer and developer on games like Forbidden Stars, Talisman, Elder Sign, Netrunner, Imperial Assault; to name a few.

Which game are you the most proud to have been a part of creating?

Sam: Forbidden Stars was the game I had the biggest hand in shaping and it turned out so very good. I loved everything about the process, the collaboration with the other designers, coming up with solutions to fundamental problems, creating new cards based on the Warhammer 40k Universe. It was great.

What is one of your favorite games to play?

Sam: My favorite game of all time is Battlestar Gallactica. The hidden identity elements work so perfectly in the setting, and every playthrough is unique and interesting.

Do you have a favorite Faeria card?

Sam: Ruunin. She was my first legendary, after I was already focusing on green. I love that she enables a more control focused deck, as you handle opposition with taunt and healing until Ruunin’s value overtakes your opponent.

What are some of your hobbies?

Sam: All things nerdy. Reading fantasy and sci-fi, watching comic book movies, playing boardgames, card games, computer games. Roleplaying games and Larps. Designing games in my spare time.

Thanks, Sam - sounds like you'll fit right in.

You may see Sam hanging around our Discord chat as Lolki. If you see him, make sure to say hello. We're proud to have him aboard.
