1P 117A - SPOILER Pandemic Legacy SPOILER

Folks, here's the spoiler episode on Pandemic Legacy: Season 1.  It includes information on Julius's experience playing the game and his thoughts on it.  It includes details about the game that you wil want to avoid if you have any expectations to play in the future.  You have been warned (possibly overwarned).

1P 117 - Pandemic: Legacy

In episode 107 Abert and Julius discuss Pandemic: Legacy.  This is the runaway co-op hit in which you get to play through a 1 time adventure.  We also discuss a few other small things, but mostly this is all Pandemic: Legacy.  Note, this episode has no spoilers, but we will also release a spoiler episode in a few days.

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.
