Episode: Friends of the Show - Don’t Give Up Falling for Lords, Mr Darcy - Jeremy Greer ( 114.39 MB / 83:18)

For our next Friends of the Show Episode, we are joined by Jeremy Greer.
Jeremy runs his own podcast Don’t Give Up Skeleton, which is based on the stories of fans of the Dark Souls series of games, as well as co-hosting the Dark Insight Podcast, which is a videogame related podcast.

Jeremy is new to the boardgaming hobby, so we talk a few games he should consider picking up as a new player including Love Letter, Hive and Survive! Escape from Atlantis.

He tells us about his experiences with Marrying Mister Darcy and how he dealt with being thrown into his first ever Dungeons and Dragons game.  In short - he loved it.

We also have a good old chat about the Dark Souls Boardgame Kickstarter, and what our thoughts are on it.

Episode: Blood Rage and Contest ( 80.79 MB / 88:15)

We have a chat about a hot game from last year, Blood Rage. We also give the details of our first contest (we are participating in the Dice Tower mega contest - $50 gift card to CoolstuffInc with a chance at $1000 gift card at CoolStuffInc). Somewhere in the podcast we give you details on how to enter!

First we start off by looking at some recently played games :

Imhotep 01:00

Time Stories + Expansions 07:21

Mystic Vale 15:21

We then look back at the two games we reviewed a year ago (22:00) - Machi Koro and Betrayal at House on the Hill. Do these games still hold up?

We then get into Blood Rage (27:00) - Theme and components? it's Cool Mini or Not so you know the minis are good, but how is the game? What about the depth of strategy and multiple paths to victory? It's got combat as a main focus, and you know how we feel about that, is it the same for this game? And it's got one of Gray's least favourite mechanisms - drafting...

If you want to have more chances of winning the $1000 dollars, listen to the other podcasts that are participating in the Mega Contest - they can be found at http://www.dicetowernetwork.com

Episode: 25 – The Family Gamers Podcast – Solo play ( 23.07 MB / 33:36)
Playing board games solo is a great way to improve your skills, using strategy and critical thinking. There are unofficial solo variations available for nearly every game, mostly on BoardGameGeek.com, and there are even groups (ironically) dedicated to solo play, such as the 1-player guild. What we've been playing recently: Ticket to Ride World's Fair 1893 - the retail copy! We reviewed the pre-Kickstarter prototype last year, and we like the finished version even more. Monopoly Deal Checkers Dominoes Hiss Build a Robot ("like Cootie, but better in every way") We did a 1000 piece puzzle. We love Presto Puzzle Saver to preserve a finished puzzle for framing. Ratchet & Clank Mario Kart 8 Wario Ware: Smooth Moves Nintendo recently announced the "NES Classic", a miniature, self-contained system with dozens of classic 80s NES games. We are interested and think it could be a great gift for kids whose parents grew up with NES. We briefly mentioned toys-to-life and other expansion-heavy games. Stay tuned for more next week, and let us know what you think of these types of games for your kids. On to the solo games! Twilight Struggle can be played solo digitally! From the same publisher is a game called Labyrinth, which can be solo or 2 player. Codenames has a one-player variation in the official rules. We like Logic Dots, a one-player-only series of logic puzzles. Andrew really wants to try Zpocalypse as a solo play, to really master the mechanics. Most co-operative games can be played solo without too many changes: Shadows over Camelot (here's our favorite guidelines for playing it solo) Pandemic Forbidden Island Mice and Mystics, or really any pre-built role-playing campaign that doesn't require a game master. Games designed to be single-player: Labyrinth the marble-race game "Solitaire" with cards, dominoes, mah-jong tiles Jigsaw puzzles! logic puzzles math puzzles crossword puzzles Scrabble? Try to beat your own high score (or try the Words Alone app to really hone your skills) Games that can be turned into single-player against one or more artificial intelligence players: Tokaido (either against one AI, against 2 or more AIs) Tesla vs. Edison with the Powering Up! expansion (coming soon) Takenoko (TakenSolo) Games that already feel sort of like solitaire, because they are parallel play: Carcassone Machi Koro Race for the Galaxy Puerto Rico Dominion Jenga lends itself very well to solo play. So does Zombie Dice, since your turn is not dependent on others' turns. Maybe the more players that are in the game normally, the easier it is to solo? We're not sure. It's a large, lonely world of solo play out there, but maybe you should try it out with your favorite game!
