This "week" I look at the game Duel in the Dark. This is a two player game with a solo variant build in. It is set in WWII Europe. British bombers are attacking your German cities and you need to defend them from the onslaught. In this weird game, victory points are gained when other side moves into your space.
Today's episode is all about Hermann Luttman. First I have a great discussion with Hermann about some of his solitaire designs. Then I look at his latest solo game, A Spoiled Victory: Dunkirk 1940. Enough said.. on with the show!

Welcome to episode 50! It's amazing that I have gotten this far and there seems to be no shortage of games to talk about. This time, I look at Navajo Wars by Joel Toppen. I also talk to Joel about the game. It's a very interesting discussion.
Once again it's braiiins time here on the 1 Player podcast. This time, we look at Victory Point Games take on the theme with the States of Siege, Dawn of the Zeds, designed by Hermann Luttmann. This is one of the biggest most complex States of Siege game so far. You get tons of options and variety and decisions to make all with fantastic graphic design.
This month's game is Cuba Libre. This is a game I've been really excited about playing for a long time. If finally came out about a month ago and I've been learning,playing and enjoying it the last few weeks. This is the 2nd or 3rd game in GMT's COIN series and is co-designed by Volko Ruhnke & Jeff Grossman. The game is about the Cuban Revolution of the 1950's.
I've been busy busy busy lately so in this episode I find time to talk about games I may talk about some day. Then, I look closely at In Magnificent Style by Hermann Luttmann and published by Victory Point Games. This is a neat little game about the Pickett's Charge during the Battle of Gettysburg in the American Civil War. The game recreates this hopeless charge in a very entertaining way.

Welcome to the 1st episode of 2013. This show I look at the game Mosby's Raiders published by Victory Games. The game is about John Mosby and his Partisan Raiders. They waged guerrilla warfare against the North during the American Civil War. This episode I also look at my "ideal solitaire game" by picking the various attributes I think I like in a game. The episode is a bit short. It might have been longer if it wasn't for the power going out while recording. I finished in the dark.

Today's episode is on the classic solitaire wargame, Ambush! This is a paragraph driven wargame. As you play, you look up in a book to determine what is going on. In otherwords, this game has A LOT of information that is unknown to the player until he encounters it. I also briefly talk about preparing to play a big solo game.
Ambush! on BGG.
This episode I talk about the Victory Point Game's State of Siege game called Levée en Masse. The game is on the French Revolution and designed for exactly one player. I also mention a contest.
