Inspired by this thread: what games have you played with their designers?
Some of my best friends are designers...but seriously.
This thread makes me uncomfortable.
I like seeing people be passionate about their creations and playing games with them. That is fun.
I also like seeing Carl Rigney and countless others/too many to name run the shit out of games at cons because they love them and love sharing them.
I'd like the idea of designers (just gamers who write) and podcasters (just gamers who have a mic) being put on pedestals to be kicked firmly in the junk. Hard.
Down with this kind of bullshit hierarchy.
Power to the players.
