1P 107 - Samurai Spirit

It's the Solitaire PnP Design contest time of the year.  We have a long chat with Chris Hansen regarding the contest.  First we look at the normal news and Kickstarter stuff.  After we do the normal game review stuff.  This time, we look at Samurai Spirit by Antoine Bauza.  It's a neat little co-op game for the math lover & film buff in you.

1P 103 - Burgle Bros.

In this latest long episode of the podcast, we cover a LOT of stuff!  Our main game is Burgle Bros, a heist game similar in theme to the movie Oceans 11, but with the austerity of Austin Powers.  In this game, players break into a museum and try to escape with loot. We also discuss the all important question, does every game need to support solitaire? The easy answer is well, off course, but we hash it out nonetheless.  You can also get the latest (week old) scoop on the 1 Player Guild Challenge coin.

We have our usual Kickstarter report and What's it Missing
