1P 125 - V-Commandos

Welcome back to episode 125 of the 1 Player Podcast. Julius starts out with a discussion of his encounters with local armed robbery, and then explains more details about our new Discord chat.
With the release of the new Onirim app, we've also started playing too many games of Onirim on our respective devices, so we cover this app's release.
Julius also briefly talks about the solo mode in Gloomhaven (noting that the solo scenarios are not indicative of a full solo mode in the game).
Albert also talks about the new Isle of Dr. Necroix game on Kickstarter (and Julius will nag a full review out of him).

Julius also present V-Commandos, a stealth based cooperative game set in SS controlled Germany. Julius goes through the gameplay, nitpicks some, and comes out with a final conclusion. Albert just argues that it should be considered a war game (which it shouldn't).

1P 123 - Aeon’s End

Welcome to the 1 Player Podcast version 2.0. Albert drives through the BGG awards for best games of 2016, focusing on the games that are solitaire friendly (including co-ops, wargames, and print and plays). Let us know if the BGG awards are something you feel make a strong influence (like Albert) or are more of an overrated popularity contest (like Julius) or somewhere in between.
Then, Julius takes a more thorough look at the results of our Audience Participation Poll and announce a number of changes we are making to the format of the show in response to the survey results (including fixing the show at 60 minutes, segmenting our reviews, removing Whats It Missing, and many other changes). If you think we've gone too far or can make other changes, please let us know, especially if there are any topics or segments you would recommend we cover in the future.
We also announce our brand new Patreon! More details in the show, but we are opening up a Patreon to help us increase the depth of coverage on the show and other benefits.
After all that, Julius and Albert review Aeon's End, a deckbuilding game set in a magic using dystopian realm. We employ our new methods of game review, including our overall likes and dislikes.

Future episodes?

I've got a list of about a dozen games I want to talk about in upcoming episodes.  At my normal rate this could be 8 months of shows!  Here's a preview of some I'm hoping to do sooner rather than later...

  • If I'm Going Down... (Actually, this will be the next episode)

Then, in no particular order and subject to change...

  • D-Day Dice
  • ANMA (Astro-Navis Merchant Advanced)
  • Dungeon Crawler
  • Race for the Galaxy using the Gathering Storm expansion rules.
