TIR Presents Gaming Materialists: Discourse from Discourse Miniatures (ep. 2)

Description

This month on Gaming Materialists we are joined by Discourse from Discourse Miniatures to discuss the world’s biggest TableTop Miniature Company, Games Workshop. In recent years, TableTop miniature wargames have exploded in popularity, a tendency that was only accelerated by the COVID crisis. However, Games Workshop has also come under heavy criticism from within the gaming community for its exploitative business practices. What kinds of exploitive tactics does Games Workshop use? How does this affect the community? And in what ways does the quest for profit shaped the development of the games?
