This super episode is on a super game called Sentinels of the Multiverse. This is a super-hero card game designed for 3-5 players that is very fun solo. The expansions add an incredible amount of replayability to a game that brings a lot of replayability in the box. Add to that the opportunity for monthly challenges at the 1 Player Guild and this game is virtually guaranteed fun!
I also look at thematic games and pick my "top 7" thematic games.

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.
I also go over the typical news, a donation option on the webpage, the many winners of the 2013 Solitaire Print & Play design contest. I also cover the November hot games, courtesy of SGoyT geeklist (Solitaire Games on your Table).

I am in the midst of moving this week. I don't have much time for a show but this one is surprisingly long. I talk to Todd R from French Toast Games about Spell Saga. This is a Tabletop Novel he has on Kickstarter right now. That's a narrative told in the form of a card game. I also look at Dungeon Heroes by Michael Coe of Gamelyn Games. Dungeon Heroes is a neat little dungeon crawler that can be played solo in about 10 or 15 minutes.
I hope the audio works this time.

All aboard! This episode I attempt to look at solo friendly train games. I don't get very in depth into that but I do reminisce about old video games. I go into more detail about Silverton. It's a game I really like because of the history and gameplay.

Episode 40 is here! In this episode I talk a lot about print & play games. I go into tools, supplies and even a bit about technique. Then, I review a game which was originally a commercial game but is now available as PnP.

In this game I look at mountain climbing. There are two games on the subject and I review the smaller sized one... Disaster on K2 by Tom Decker. As may is a crazy month, this is about all I look at. I do, however, give a brief "explanation" of the event that set the theme behind this game in which 11 climbers died on K2 in a single day.

This episode covers a neat little Print and Play game on transporting goods across the galaxy. The game is AstroNavis Merchant Advanced. You take on the role of a trader whose just taken a loan out on a ship and has 3 months left to repay it. Your going to need to haul quite a few loads in those 3 months.
I also give a quick recap of Solitaire Gaming Month and my recent solitairish activities which mainly amount to thrifting a few games.

This long overdue episode is finally out. In this show, I look at Rune Age, the deck-building game by Corey Konieczka and published by Fantasy Flight Games in 2011. This is a fantasy themed deck-building game set in the world of Terrinoth which is also the setting for Rune bound, DungeonQuest, Descent, and Rune Wars. All of which, except for the last 2, support solitaire play. I also introduce solitaire gaming month... May!

I'm really excited by this episode. I've been wanting to talk about dungeon crawlers for the longest time. Not only that, but I even review a game appropriately named Dungeon Crawler. This is a ECG (expandable card game) in which to take a team of characters into a dungeon. I also give a broad general look at dungeon crawling. Oh, make sure to pay attention to the small contest.
Note that one game I mentioned in the news, Once Upon a Fable, no longer seems to exist on Kickstarter. Sorry about that.

In this latest episode, I review Last Frontier: The Vesuvius Incident. This is a neat game about sending space marines into a ship invested with hostile aliens. Unfortunately, the ship is falling into a planets atmosphere. Your time is limited. The goal is to get into the ship and save as many crew as possible, or at least account for the dead crew. It's a bit gruesome but fun.
The game is currently on KS, if it sounds interesting check it out before the campaign ends.
I also resolve the Pocast Contest #2
Last Fronter: The Vesuvius Incident on Board Game Geek and on Kickstarter.

This latest show is all about Victory Point Games and it's a big one! First off I give a brief overview of the company's origins and then get into a look at the States of Siege game series. Then, there is an interview with Tom Decker who has designed a number of solitaire friendly games published by VPG. Finally, I look at Nemo's War by Chris Taylor.
