1P 053 - Robinson Crusoe

Welcome to the latest episode. This show, I look at the game Robinson Crusoe: Adventure on the Cursed Island by Ignacy Trzewiczek.  This is a co-operative worker placement game in which your character is stuck on an island somewhere and have to work to survive.  This is a BIG game and there is a lot to say about it... fortunately I keep it brief.

I also try to convince you that you may want to play co-operative games by controlling multiple characters.

1P 052 - S.O.S. Titanic

This episode is on the new game by Bruno Cathala & Ludovic Maublanc. The game is a cooperative/solo game on the sinking of the RMS Titanic on April 15, 1912.  However, this game is really just a variant of the classic solitaire card game which I just remembered is sometimes called Klondike...doh!  Anyway, as I said, it is just a variant, but one that I found made the game MUCH better than the original.  The theme and mechanics work very very well together and make this game much more than the sum of its parts.

Also, I briefly step into the future and look back at "important" solitaire games.
