This week I talk about Storm Above the Reich, a GMT game designed by Mark Aasted & Jeremy White. This is a WWII game in which you simulate the German air defense against American bombers. You control a group of fighters that try to engage and bring down the American bombers. The game is a stand-alone sequal to Skies Above the Reich and can be integrated with it to get a much longer campaign game. I quite enjoyed the game and hope the podcast does a fair job of giving you a sense of what it's like.
Shame on me for also forgetting to mention that GMT currently has Skies Above Britain on their P500. This is the British equivalent of the game.
Finally, I had my Covid booster yesterday and just feel worn out today. If I did a poor job of editing this week, well, more poor than normal, then blame that.

This week, Julius talks about Solenia. In this game, you ply the winds of a tiny planet trading for goods and stuff on a giant yellow airship.

This week I return to interviewing other solo podcast hosts. This time around, it's Steve Morrison of Errant Adventures. The podcast features playthroughs of solo games. Each game spans multiple episodes and after over 40 weekly episodes he's still on his third game. We have a long rambling discussion centered around solo roleplaying as well as his podcast. I hope you enjoy!

This week Julius and I delve into the realm of point and click video games... sort of. We are talking about a point and click board game, or more precisely, book game. Cantaloop: Breaking Into Prison is an analog game that plays, looks and feels like a classic point and click adventure, think The Secret of Monkey Island or Grim Fandango from Lucas Arts. Just, there is no clicking in this game as it's all based on a book.

This week I teach Julius about the game Coldwater Crown. This is a game in which you are competing in a fishing tournament to get the most trophy points. Like a modern dance competition, there are trophies available for just about anything you do. Come hear what someone that doesn't like fishing think about this game.
