This week Julius and I look at something a bit different. The Curioius Correspondence Club is a subscription service that will send you an escape room style mystery every month. It comes in the form of a letter with all kinds of papercraft items that you use to solve the mystery.
Each letter is just about self contained, other than the internet you need to enter the final answer once you have solved all the puzzles. You can also look at layered on-line hints if you get stuck with a puzzle.

You ship got a bit too close to the sun and are now being pulled in. Sadly, your ship is suffering malfunctions due to the intense heat of the sun. You need to rep[air all the modules as they break around you and divert power to the engine so you can escape the Sun's gravity.
This week we have a small episode in which I teach Julius the small game Solar Storm. This is a fun little pandemic style cooperative game in a very small package.

This week I interview Elli Amir, designer of the game Worldbreakers: Advent of the Khanate. This is a two player card game with a solo campaign mode which will be coming to Kickstarter in March. I really enjoyed this conversation with Elli, not only did they talk about the game and the solo mode for the game but they told me a bit about the process of commissioning art for a game. I really enjoy hearing the backstory for games and game design. This was a really good conversation and I look forward to seeing more of the game, which can be tried for free on Tabletopia!
