This episode is just full of exciting stuff.  First off, we meet the new co-host, Julius.  Then, Julius does an interview with Matt Leacock.  Mr Leacock has published a number of co-op games that are very solo friendly and now has a kickstarter going on for Thunderbirds, a co-op game based on the classic animated show.  We cover two games this time, Forbidden Island and Forbidden Desert!  That's something that has only happened once before in this podcast when I covered Lord of the Rings.  Finally, Julius introduces a new segment and I have a giveaway!

1P 074 - The Hunters: German U-Boats at War

Posted by fractaloon on February 17th, 2015

This episode I look at the game The Hunters: German U-Boats at War 1939-1943, if you want the full title.  This game is a simulation of being in charge of a u-boat during world war two.  The game is similar to the classic B-17 Queen of the Skies in that though the game play is very light and random it is full of historical flavor.
