Welcome to the 99th episode of the 1 Player podcast.  Yup, we are nearly at 100; but, for now let's focus on 99.  This episode is one of the biggest yet at almost 144 minutes!!  It's got a lot.  There is the normal KS news, and a discussion on games whose solo experience killed the multiplayer game and games whose multiplayer experience killed the solo game.  Then, Chris has his solo report on Mr. CabbageHead's Garden Game by Todd Sanders.  Then Julius talks about Project Dreamscape by Will & Sara Reed.  We have a Great Debate and finally Julius finishes up with an interview with Sara Reed.
