This week on Every Night is Game Night, Anthony and Jason sit down to discuss solo variants. We pick four games with different takes on adding solo play to a typically multiplayer-only game and discuss how they play in general, but also how that approach tends to work, while selecting our favorites from the bunch. 

The games covered include Five Tribes, 7 Wonders, 7 Wonders Duel, and Takenoko. We also dig a bit into Automa and how it can help to improve solo play through carefully mimicking the opposing player's turn.

Episode 143: Dominant Strategies

Length: 1:04:35

Show Links: RSS | iTunes | Stitcher | Download Episode


Welcome back to Vox Republica, the Cardboard Republic Podcast!

We post new episodes every other Thursday, with each episode being about 45 minutes long.

Vox Republica is proudly supported by our Patreon. Consider contributing today!

DESCRIPTION: Big money, big money, big money - stop! Nearly every game invokes some kind of strategy, and, generally, the more complicated the game, the deeper and more varied those strategies may be. Most of the time, this is all part of the game's appeal. But...what happens when not every strategy is created equal? What do you do when one particular path is so much better than the rest that it warps the entire experience. This week, Erin and Ryan discuss dominant (aka broken) gaming strategies, and what you can do about them.



QUICK TOPICS – (19:30):

  • Erin reflects on why it is she finds it so hard to play new games of late, and how that can be compounded by things such as the pressure of content creation, the added mental energy of learning new systems constantly, and even the paradox of having too many options to choose from.


  • Some games, try as they might to offer a wide variety of strategies, run into a problem of having one path to victory that wins a disproportionate amount of the time. We deconstruct what this may mean for that game, and for games overall. Areas of discussion include:
    • Is it still a dominant strategy if you can beat it?
    • Are they a flaw or a feature of a game?
    • How does this differ from, you know, a normal strategy?
    • Are there any upsides to their existence in a game?
    • What can a designer do to correct these imbalances? What about a publisher? Or a player for that matter?

PLUGS - (1:58:37):


We’d love to hear from you! You can send questions or feedback via email at podcast@cardboardrepublic.com. You can also reach us social media, including Twitter, Facebook, and BoardGameGeek.

Today we talk about designing and publishing games for a particular market. Here are some of the topics/questions we cover:

  • What's a target market?
  • Which markets are commonly considered in the board game industry?
  • Identifying the market that's right for your game.
  • Should I use elements to my game to fit a particular group of consumers?
  • Do publishers have a specific market in mind when they are scouting games?
  • How do things like ease of play and length of play factor into a market segment?
  • Should I design a game for a specific market?
  • Should designers put their target market on their sell sheet?
  • Are there specific conventions where you'll find publishers for specific markets?


Episode: W3_S16_E10_Crowdfunding_with_Nate_Murray ( 39.91 MB / 69:46)

Nate C. Murray who works with IndieGoGo's board game outreach joined the pod for a chat about crowdfunding. We delved into some of the things IndieGoGo has been doing to attract more creators, explored some games that Nate loves playing, and even discussed whether we are in a miniatures bubble. We ended the episode with a thorough description of what a designer should do to approach Nate to pitch a game. This episode runs the gamut of topics, and it's always great to have a smart guy like Nate for these kinds of episodes.

Episode: Planeta de juegos 80 - El juego competitivo ( 109.39 MB / 119:28)
¡Hola, jugones! En el programa de hoy vamos a echar un vistazo a lo que supone jugar en modo competitivo. Las razones, querencias o apetencias que tenemos los jugadores para jugar competitivamente y la tipología de juegos que se prestan a ello. ¿A qué le llamamos jugar competitivo y por qué vamos a torneos? ¿Qué importancia cobra el llamado 'metajuego'? ¿Por qué no a todos nos gusta jugar así? Para dar respuesta a estas cuestiones nos hemos traído a dos invitados sensacionales: Charlie y PabloWaterford. Como siempre, tendremos nuestras habituales secciones: - Supernovas La actualidad del mundillo lúdico que más nos ha interesado en las últimas semanas. -Campo de asteroides Hoy vamos a hablar del modo de juego competitivo. Qué juegos se prestan a jugar de esta manera. Características, modos de juego, en qué son los torneos y un largo etcétera que trataremos de abordar con nuestros invitados de hoy; Charlie y Pablo Waterford. -Torre de control Analizamos las partidas que hemos jugado en las últimas semanas. Forbidden Stars, 2GM tactics, Time Stories: Caso Marcy y Profecía de dragones, Clank: Sunken Treasures, Mystic Vale: Vale of the Wild y Clank. -Sala de comunicaciones Con vuestros comentarios del último programa. ¡Que lo disfrutéis!

Draft Mechanic: Spoiler Episode Epsilon

T.I.M.E Stories: Expedition: Endurance, 1914 NT

WARNING! This episode contains MAJOR, MASSIVE, COMPLETE SPOILERS for the T.I.M.E Stories scenario “Expedition: Endurance.” After nearly a year, we dive back in to Spoiler Epsiode territory as our debriefings from the fifth T.I.M.E Stories scenario see the light of day. We have half an hour of discussion from Team Alpha, and then Team Beta returns after the break to join us after their run. Things went much differently for the both of us and there was definitely a lot to pick apart. With scenario six, Lumen Fidei, looming on the horizon, it’s time to jump back into the cassions for another round!
