So the Meeple Syrup community made a thing – introducing Pecha Kucha Kon 2021, all about board game design from many different perspectives.

For those hearing the term ‘Pecha Kucha’ for the first time, it’s basically a presentation format where you have exactly 20 slides, and exactly 20 seconds per slide. (There are other, shorter versions, but this ’20×20′ is the best known version.) Pecha Kucha is Japanese for ‘chit chat’, and thanks to the time length it’s going to be succinct.

In any case, 7 videos were submitted to the Kon, including one from yours truly – all the videos are embedded below, and the full playlist can be found here. Enjoy!
