Tiny Epic Galaxies is currently on Kickstarter. The campaign will end Saturday Feb. 7.
In this latest episode, I cover Race for the Galaxy and it's expansion The Gathering Storm which added solo play to the game via a robot. I had the opportunity to play this thanks to a "Solitaire Games Around the World" event in which a copy of this game is being sent... around the world! I also look back at my favorite games this year and then look forward to the upcoming year.
This first episode of 2015 features an interview with Tony Boydell, designer of Snowdonia and a review of... Snowdonia! This is a great worker-placement game with lots of hard choices to make and lots of variability in the play. Games can feel very different, depending on weather, contract cards, train chosen, rubble distribution and scenario.
