1P 202 - Horrified

This week Julius tells us about the game Horrified. If you like the classic movie monsters (Dracula, Frankenstein's Monster & the Bride of Frankenstein, the Mummy, the Invisible Man, the Werewolf and the Creater from the Black Lagoon) then you may just like this game. This is a co-op game by Prospero Hall and published by Ravensburger that is reminiscent of Pandemic. BGGRavensburger


1P 201 - CDG Solo System

This week Julius is out of town. Instead, I have a conversation with José Ruiz, a.k.a. Stuka Joe. Stuka Joe has a YouTube channel with many, many playthrough videos of wargames. It you are interested in wargames it's worth checking out his solo playthroughs of multiplayer and solo games. He's also the designer of the CDG Solo System which allows a person to play Card Drive Games solo by helping you manage the fog of war created by having a hand of cards. Don't be confused like I was. You...


1P 200 - Canvas

Welcome to the 200th episode of the 1 Player Podcast. Today, Julius and I talk about the game Canvas. This is a really nice looking game about combining components of art into a single cohesive work of great beauty and lotsa points. This game uses transparent plastic cards to achieve the goal and unlock your creative point-ential 🙄. Unfortunately, it is currently unavailable... aaah! BGGRoad To Infamy


1P 199 - Ada Lovelace - Legacy of the Analytical Engine

Episode 199 is about a sneaky little PnP game not found on BGG.. not exactly anyway. This is a legacy version of the game Ada Lovelace: Consulting Mathematician (which is on BGG). Julius found out about this game and goes through the legacy experience. Note, there is every the slightest spoiler in this, but this game doesn't have a lot to spoil. Check it out.. it sounds interesting! Designer's sitepayhipitchioBGG


1P 198 - Railroad Ink

In this episode, my voice can actually be heard as Julius and I talk about the roll-and-write game, Railroad Ink. this is a cute little dice-chucking (for one person) dry erase drawing game of railroad empires. Hop aboard and listen! 🙄 BGGHorrible GuildBGGHorrible GuildBGGHorrible Guild


1P 197 - The Hunted Series

Welcome back to another episode. This time around, Julius interviews Gabe Barrett, designer of the Hunted Series of games and host of the Board Game Design Lab. BGGBestWIth1BGGBestWith1BGGKSBestWith1BGDL


1P 196 - The Lost Ruins of Arnak

Today Julius and I talk about a pretty darned new game, The Lost Ruins of Arnak. You are an archeologist exploring what you are pretty sure is the fabled island of Arnak. At least, that's what you think the uncharted isle you found is. You will explore the island and uncover ruins, still guarded by mythical beasts and study the resources you find to help you uncover hidden secrets and most especially... victory points! Listen in and see what I think of this game. BGGCGE


1P 195 - Nations: The Dice Game (back to the table)

Julius and I revisit a classic! We talk about Nations: The Dice Game again. A game we first covered back in 2015 on episode 85. This is a great dice game with lots of luck and strategy and a really good, really simple solo variant in the box. Come see (hear) what we think about it. Are we still playing it? Some more than others. BGG1 Player Podcast


1P 194 - Under Falling Skies

Today Julius and I spend some time talking about the pretty darned new solo game Under Falling Skies published by Czech Games Edition and designed by Tomáš Uhlíř. In this game you are defending earth from a line of invading aliens as they drop closer and closer to your bases one row at a time. My gosh... in the episode I compared it to Missle Command but's more of a Space Invaders isn't it? Whoops. Anyway, it's a neat game with a ton of options! Oh wow! I only just realized this was...


1P 193 - One or More

This week Julius and I discuss solo gaming and controlling more than one player while playing solo. This refers to playing multiple characters in a co-op, such as Pandemic but also playing opposing sides in a multiplayer game. There is so much more we could have said but we kept it short at just 35-ish minutes! We mentioned a bunch of games. I'll have to be honest though. I didn't think to write them down so I will list the ones I remembered. BGGBGGBGGBGGBGG you seeing a thread...


1P 192 -Upkeep

This isn't podcast about dealing with upkeep when playing M:TG. This episode is about the family game Upkeep in which your goal is to upkeep your yard by raking all the leaves. It's a light family game that can be played cooperatively or solo. BGG


1P 191 - Maeshowe

Another special episode. I welcome back Lee Broderick, designer of Maeshowe, the grim game of escaping an ancient cairn after accidentally falling through the roof. The game is based on a historical event as chronicled in the Orkneyinga Saga. Lee tells us all about the history of Maeshowe and then we discuss the game. Oh, it's currently on Kickstarter! Check it out. BGGKSBGGBGGBGGwebsiteRSS


1P 190 - Dungeon Alliance

This week Julius teaches us about the dungeon crawler, Dungeon Alliance. It sounds like quite a fun puzzle of a game.. think Mage Knight but in half the time and in a dungeon! BGG


1P 189 - Warp's Edge

In this episode, Julius and I discuss the solo bag-building game Warp's Edge from Renegade Game Studio and designed by Mr. Scott Almes. This is an excellent game with some, um, interesting production choices. Listen in and get the details. BGGRenegade GamesBGGRenegade Games


1P 188 - Cerebria: The Inside World

1P 186 - Theme or Mechanic

In this episode, Julius and I discuss what matters more, theme or mechanic. Come along and listen to our rambling thoughts.


1P 185 - Pocket Landships

A very light wargame set in an alternate timelean Pocket Landships is. Sorry, Yodaspeak but this is a neat dice chucking game of fighting steam powered mecha with a big ol' diesel tank. Fun it is so check out the review. BGGBGG


1P 184 - Aerion

This week we finally talk about Aerion, the sixth game so far in the Oniverse series. Shady originally said the hope was to make seven games total so hopefully there is still one more to go. Then they can go back and re-publish Urbion/Equilibrion that hasn't yet been made in the larger box size. Anyway, Aerion is a dice game similar but not at all like Yahtzee! BGGZ-Man
