First up, some comments:
- I am having trouble finding what perspective and style to use. I’m worried it is a bit too much like a story because of how I wrote this.
- I wrote this out long-hand in a notebook.
- I have done some minor editing of my original writing to sound better.
- My character was a Martian whose preferred weapon is a battle axe.
- The adventure ended prematurely. I could have altered that, but decided to keep it as is.
In this episode I very quickly look at using Rory's Story Cubes for solo RPG gaming. I also spend some time talking with A.J. Porfirio about Hostage Negotiator which is just now on Kickstarter.
In this BIGGEST episode yet, I have a discussion on the 2014 solitaire PnP design contest with Chris Hansen & Todd Sanders. This was originally recorded as a Google Hangounts conversation and the video can be watched on YouTube.
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.
In this latest episode, I look at the game of Nations, a card drafting, resource management, worker placement kind of game. I also get to talk to one of the designers, Rustan Håkansson, one of the designers of the game. Nations is a big game and this is a big episode to go along with it!
Welcome back to the 1 Player podcast. I unexpectedly took a vacation from podcasting for the last few weeks so I've stayed busy and have a lot of fun playing Thunderstone Advance. This is a great dungeon crawling, deck building game for 1 to 4 players The game is a sequel to Thunderstone with streamlined rules, however it is compatible with the original game so you can get even more cards to play with now, if you have the original.
Today's episode is all about Hermann Luttman. First I have a great discussion with Hermann about some of his solitaire designs. Then I look at his latest solo game, A Spoiled Victory: Dunkirk 1940. Enough said.. on with the show!

The latest episode of the show is on Free Trader, a print and play game about travelling through space and hauling goods. This neat little card game uses a card driven mechanic to control a lot of the flow of the game. I take a brief look at the mechanic and how it is used in a few different games, focusing on the evolving complexity as you go from game to game.
Welcome to the latest episode. This show, I look at the game Robinson Crusoe: Adventure on the Cursed Island by Ignacy Trzewiczek. This is a co-operative worker placement game in which your character is stuck on an island somewhere and have to work to survive. This is a BIG game and there is a lot to say about it... fortunately I keep it brief.
