1P 224 - Coldwater Crown

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.

1P 219 - Groves

This week I tell Julius about the bag building, worker placement game Groves.  It's an interesting little game with just fantastic art by an independent publisher, Letiman Games.  Check it out.  There's stuff to like and stuff not to like about this game.  Oh drat, I just realized this is out of print.

1P 215 - Underwater Cities

This week Julius teaches us about Underwater Cities.  Listen carefully though.. this game is overflowing with ocean puns.  Actually, Julius tossed in more puns than I had realized until I started editing.  I can't fathom how he comes up with them, but regardless, the game itself is really interesting.

1P 120 - The Plant

Wow folks.. did you expect another episode so quickly?  I didnt but I messed up 119.  I figured I should record something short to let listeners know the fixed #119 was back.  Well, why not turn it into an episode!

This episode only covers the RPG game, The Plant by by Jason Morningstar of Bully Pulpit Games.  He's designed many other acclaimed RPGs such as The shaba-Al-Hiri Roach, Fiasco, Night Witches and others.  The Plant is a grim RPG designed for exactly one player.  It is a very well implemented game that will leave a player full of emotions.  It's a fantasstic game, but not for the faint of heart (that means me).
