Episode 95 is here!  In this episode Albert and Julius decide to talk a bit about solo games.  This time, they cover some news Kickstarter games and a game feature!  The game is none other than Suburbia by Ted Alspach and published by his own label, Bezier Games.  This is a neat game about building your own city and came out just a few years ago.

  • The Pursuit of Happiness (KS, BGG)

  • Nova Aetas (KSBGG)
  • King's Forge: Glassworks (KSBGG) - which I was wrong about and doesn't seem to support solo play.

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 :)

1P 085 - Nations The Dice Game

Finally summer break is over and things return to normal.  Well, at least we make a poor attempt at normal.  In this show we have a small news segment and a small Kickstarter report, followed by two game reviews.  That's right... two!

First we look at the independently published game, Hero's Journey Home by Graham Cranfield.  This small card game features unique art by the designer himself.  Then we look at Nations: The Dice Game by Rustan Håkansson.  This is definately the little brother of Nations which was covered on the show a year and a half ago.
