Albert's on vacation, but Julius is joined by a special co-host, Chris Hansen, the Empressario of Print and Play. We talk about some new games and kickstarter projects, chat with the designer of Dark Dealings (currently on kickstarter), and review Quest Awakening of Melior. Then, we review Dead Men Tell No Tales, a coop pirate game, and talk about what is the most important part of a successful print-and-play game.
This episode was delayed, with Albert away and Julius very busy until the end of the month. We will return to our normal bi-weekly schedule soon.

This episode, which came out very long, we discuss the very popular Mage Knight Board Game. We also discuss all of these Kickstarter projects coming out, even interviewing the designer of Mistfall. After the news and the board game review, Albert interviews Julius and we can delve a little bit deeper into his gamer history.

This super episode is on a super game called Sentinels of the Multiverse. This is a super-hero card game designed for 3-5 players that is very fun solo. The expansions add an incredible amount of replayability to a game that brings a lot of replayability in the box. Add to that the opportunity for monthly challenges at the 1 Player Guild and this game is virtually guaranteed fun!
I also look at thematic games and pick my "top 7" thematic games.

Once again it's braiiins time here on the 1 Player podcast. This time, we look at Victory Point Games take on the theme with the States of Siege, Dawn of the Zeds, designed by Hermann Luttmann. This is one of the biggest most complex States of Siege game so far. You get tons of options and variety and decisions to make all with fantastic graphic design.
I also go over the typical news, a donation option on the webpage, the many winners of the 2013 Solitaire Print & Play design contest. I also cover the November hot games, courtesy of SGoyT geeklist (Solitaire Games on your Table).

I am in the midst of moving this week. I don't have much time for a show but this one is surprisingly long. I talk to Todd R from French Toast Games about Spell Saga. This is a Tabletop Novel he has on Kickstarter right now. That's a narrative told in the form of a card game. I also look at Dungeon Heroes by Michael Coe of Gamelyn Games. Dungeon Heroes is a neat little dungeon crawler that can be played solo in about 10 or 15 minutes.
I hope the audio works this time.

All aboard! This episode I attempt to look at solo friendly train games. I don't get very in depth into that but I do reminisce about old video games. I go into more detail about Silverton. It's a game I really like because of the history and gameplay.

Episode 40 is here! In this episode I talk a lot about print & play games. I go into tools, supplies and even a bit about technique. Then, I review a game which was originally a commercial game but is now available as PnP.

In this game I look at mountain climbing. There are two games on the subject and I review the smaller sized one... Disaster on K2 by Tom Decker. As may is a crazy month, this is about all I look at. I do, however, give a brief "explanation" of the event that set the theme behind this game in which 11 climbers died on K2 in a single day.
