It's the Solitaire PnP Design contest time of the year. We have a long chat with Chris Hansen regarding the contest. First we look at the normal news and Kickstarter stuff. After we do the normal game review stuff. This time, we look at Samurai Spirit by Antoine Bauza. It's a neat little co-op game for the math lover & film buff in you.
GenCantSoloCon is right around the corner. Julius comes back to announce the opening of the official geeklist and the start of the pre-registration event. For more details listen to the podcast, or follow the links to the official geeklist:
Albert and Julius (who arrived a bit late) are joined by Mikolaj, designer of a Hostage Negotiator expansion and long time listener. Everyone talks about Mikolaj’s gaming history, some kickstarter games, and all about Castle Panic and its expansions and rethemes. And there’s a contest at the end.

Episode 104 is here! This time we have a good PnP report, an interview with the designer of Dungeon Crusade: Book 1 Genesis of Evil, which is currently in Kickstarter. Then we discuss the merits of owning your own lawn mowing business.
In this latest long episode of the podcast, we cover a LOT of stuff! Our main game is Burgle Bros, a heist game similar in theme to the movie Oceans 11, but with the austerity of Austin Powers. In this game, players break into a museum and try to escape with loot. We also discuss the all important question, does every game need to support solitaire? The easy answer is well, off course, but we hash it out nonetheless. You can also get the latest (week old) scoop on the 1 Player Guild Challenge coin.
The year of wargaming continues, with our second game of the year. Granted, we're almost halfway through the year, but at least we got another one. Albert and Julius discuss Conflict of Heroes Awakening the Bear and its solo expansion this episode as well as talking about other games and topics.
