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

1P 087 - Imperial Settlers

Julius & Albert are back with yet another big show.  This episode has a bit of news and kickstarter stuff as usual. Then, Albert talks to Ignaczy Trzewiczek about Imperial Settlers, Robinson Crusoe, Legacy: The Testament of Duke de Crecy and solitaire games.  Finally, Julius and Albert take an in depth look at Imperial Settlers.

Note: I incorrectly mentioned that Imperial Settlers won the 1 Player guild's game of the year last year.  In fact, it won the Golden Geek award for solo games and the 1 Player guild's Best Solo Variant for the campaign cards.  Oops :)
