1P 085 - Nations The Dice Game

Finally summer break is over and things return to normal.  Well, at least we make a poor attempt at normal.  In this show we have a small news segment and a small Kickstarter report, followed by two game reviews.  That's right... two!

First we look at the independently published game, Hero's Journey Home by Graham Cranfield.  This small card game features unique art by the designer himself.  Then we look at Nations: The Dice Game by Rustan Håkansson.  This is definately the little brother of Nations which was covered on the show a year and a half ago.

1P 072 - Race for the Galaxy: The Gathering Storm

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.

1P 067 - Sentinels of the Multiverse

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.

1P 066 - Onirim (2nd edition)

In this episode I revisit the now classic game Onirim.  I covered the game on my very first episode and look at it again now that a 2nd edition has been released.  The new edition, not only looks MUCH nicer, but includes an extra 4 expansions (plus an appendix). Not only that, but I talk with the designer, Shadi Torbey about this and the other Oniverse games.

1P 063 - Everything vs Everything

This latest episode is on Print and Play games.  I look at two things specifically, which includes a LOT of games....

1.  The solitaire PnP design contest 2014 is currently in the print and play it phase.  Twenty-eight games have  been submitted and are contest ready!  You can try them out now before the voting period begins which runs about a week and ends on Sept. 13.  I give a quick run-down of the games.
2.  I review Chad Metsdagh's Everything versus Everything.  It's a game in which you have characters from various pop-culture moves, stories, etc fight each other.  You control six characters while "the Director" controls another six.  Who has the most powerful team?

1P 059 - Asgard’s Chosen (take 2)

This episode is on a cool deck building/area control game, Asgard's Chosen.  This is a really neat hybrid that takes the best of both worlds and combines them into a fun game, albeit hard to learn, game.  I also finally, way belatedly, announce the winners of the 1 Player Awards.  However, if you follow the 1 Player Guild, and you should, this is all old news.
