1P 103 - Burgle Bros.

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.

1P 098 - Thunderbolt Apache Leader

The leaders of the podcast are here. Julius and Albert are joined this episode by Kevin Erskine, organizer of the Top 100 Solo Games and a prominent member of the 1 Player Guild. Everyone chats about some current games and reviews Thunderbolt Apache Leader and the Leader series in general.

Plus, we're starting a new series: PnP Patrol with Chris Hansen. Chris will be presenting a different print-and-play game every episode. The series starts with a review of Invaders from Dimension X.
Oh, and Albert flubs it on the Great Debate (but maybe you'll vote for him anyway).
