1P 054 - Free Trader

The latest episode of the show is on Free Trader, a print and play game about travelling through space and hauling goods.  This neat little card game uses a card driven mechanic to control a lot of the flow of the game.  I take a brief look at the mechanic and how it is used in a few different games, focusing on the evolving complexity as you go from game to game.

1P 016 - Raider 16-Atlantis

This is the (first) Print and Play episode. Hopefully, I'll have many more of these as I have a few other PnP games I'd like to look at. In this episode, I first talk with Crhis Hansen of the Solitaire Print and Play Design Contest being hosted on BGG. Chris talks about last years contest and winners and also about how to be involved in this years contest. There is also some talk about print and play games, in general. After that interview, I look at Raider 16-Atlantis, which was a winner from last year's contest. I talk about my experiences with putting together and then playing the game.

It's origins are based on the Print and Play podcast which has unfortunately been inactive for about a year. However, there is lots of great information on this guild and all the old episodes of that show are still available.

This geeklist has lots of free PnP games to try out.

1P 011 - D-Day Dice

This episode should have been the solo RPG episode but Real Life has gotten in the way of that in a BIG way. Instead, this episode is on D-Day Dice. The co-operative dice game about WW II. If you haven't heard about this game yet, check it out and try out the Print and Play version. If you like it, hop on over to Kickstarter and back this project.

1P 007 - SoloPlay variants

In this episode, first I talk about what I've been playing lately. Then, I talk about Solitaire variants. I talk briefly about some games with variants for one and go over what kind of games don't usually support solitaire variants. Finally, I have an interview with BGG user GameRulesForOne. He has designed quite a few solitaire variants that have been posted on BGG.
