1P 045 - In Magnificent Style

I've been busy busy busy lately so in this episode I find time to talk about games I may talk about some day.  Then, I look closely at In Magnificent Style by Hermann Luttmann and published by Victory Point Games.  This is a neat little game about the Pickett's Charge during the Battle of Gettysburg in the American Civil War.  The game recreates this hopeless charge in a very entertaining way.

1P 030 - Mosby’s Raiders

Welcome to the 1st episode of 2013. This show I look at the game Mosby's Raiders published by Victory Games. The game is about John Mosby and his Partisan Raiders. They waged guerrilla warfare against the North during the American Civil War. This episode I also look at my "ideal solitaire game" by picking the various attributes I think I like in a game. The episode is a bit short. It might have been longer if it wasn't for the power going out while recording. I finished in the dark.

1P 027 - Ambush!

Today's episode is on the classic solitaire wargame, Ambush! This is a paragraph driven wargame. As you play, you look up in a book to determine what is going on. In otherwords, this game has A LOT of information that is unknown to the player until he encounters it. I also briefly talk about preparing to play a big solo game.

1P 021 - London’s Burning

Episode 21 is here. Today I cover World War II games (sort of) and then go into detail about London's Burning. I also do an unboxing of A.D.30. Really, it's an uneveloping but you get the idea. :)

1P 017 - Smokejumpers

Episode 17 is now up. It features another review about a firefighting game (hopefully not my last). In this one, I talk about Smokejumpers. It's a neat little game where your crack team of firefighters have to stop a forest fire. But, before that, I talk about randomness in a game and some the different mechanics used to handle that.

1P 016 - Raider 16-Atlantis

This is the (first) Print and Play episode. Hopefully, I'll have many more of these as I have a few other PnP games I'd like to look at. In this episode, I first talk with Crhis Hansen of the Solitaire Print and Play Design Contest being hosted on BGG. Chris talks about last years contest and winners and also about how to be involved in this years contest. There is also some talk about print and play games, in general. After that interview, I look at Raider 16-Atlantis, which was a winner from last year's contest. I talk about my experiences with putting together and then playing the game.

The files for the game are listed in this discussion.

The current monthly geeklist on print and play crafting.

The Print and Play guild on BGG.

It's origins are based on the Print and Play podcast which has unfortunately been inactive for about a year. However, there is lots of great information on this guild and all the old episodes of that show are still available.

This geeklist has lots of free PnP games to try out.

Reviews by Chris, of games from last year's contest.

And finally... The discussion thread for this year's contest.

1P 011 - D-Day Dice

This episode should have been the solo RPG episode but Real Life has gotten in the way of that in a BIG way. Instead, this episode is on D-Day Dice. The co-operative dice game about WW II. If you haven't heard about this game yet, check it out and try out the Print and Play version. If you like it, hop on over to Kickstarter and back this project.

1P 009 - Men of Iron, the Rebirth of Infantry

Welcome to episode 9.  In this show I talk about playing multiplayer games alone.  I discuss a bit about some of the benefits and drawbacks of it.  Then, I go into more detail about my experience while playing Men of Iron, Volume 1: The Rebirth of Infantry by Richard H. Berg and published by GMT in 2005.

I also very briefly talk about the games being released at Essen this year which support playing solitaire.  Essen is just a week away at this point and many if these games will be available at local retailers in the next month or two.

1P 002 - Field Commander: Alexander

This episode of the 1 Player Podcast includes a list of some solitaire gaming resources and a (one sided) discussion about true solitaire games and their mechanics. Also, Field Commander: Alexander, by Dan Verssen and published by DVG is also reviewed in more detail.

It just occurred to me that noticeably absent from the list of resources are any websites or programs used to play boardgames on the computer... doh!
