A podcast dedicated to solitaire board gaming.
1P 278 - Knight Fall
48:22This week Julius talks about the game Knight Fall. This is a skirmish game in which players control either the knights or demons that are trying to attack and destroy the knights in an attempt to unseal the gates to the underworld. This is an asymmetrical game that can be soloed by playing a campaign game as the knights.
1P 277 - Back to the Table with Elevenses for One
24:57This week Julius and I revisit the tiny little 13 card micro-game Elevenses for One. In this solitaire game you play as an English maid tasked with getting tea for two ready in 15 minutes. It's a daunting task considering that the tea pantry is in complete disarray. This is a rather simple game of lining up 10 cards in the correct order but as you play each card, it may impact the subsequent cards.

1P 276 - Popular Mechanics: Skirmish Games
24:38We are an episode off. We normally do a Popular Mechanics show every 5 episodes. The next one will be on schedule at 280 or at least it should be. Anyway! This week Julius and I talk about skirmish games. It's not exactly a mechanic but that's okay. It was still interesting to think up skirmish solo games that I have enjoyed. Here's the list from our discussion.... 04:26 The South Shall Rise Again (BGG) 06:20 Knight Fall (BGG) 09:25 Sentinels of the Multiverse (BGG) 10:30 Marvel Crisis Protocol (BGG) 12:47 Hoplomachus: Origins (BGG) 14:31 Proving Grounds (BGG) 15:30 Warhammer Quest: The Adventure Card Game (BGG) 18:10 Ambush (BGG) 18:37 Red November (BGG) 19:17 So, You've Been Eaten (BGG) 20:00 Space Hulk Death Angel (BGG) 20:57 Skies Above the Reich (BGG) 22:06 Warp's Edge (BGG)
1P 275 - So, You’ve Been Eaten
47:04This week Julius and I talk about a game we've both been playing, So, You've Been Eaten. This is an asymetric game about mining gems from space-worm intestines. You are a miner who jumps into Space Worms and mines gems as you travel through the digestive track. You can play as either the miner or the space-worm, in either case, you are trying to survive the entire ordeal. The game is designed by Scott Almes with fantastic art by Kwanchai Moriya. So, You've Been Eaten (BGG)
1P 274 - Fields of Arle
29:37Julius and I are back with a look at Uwe Rosenberg's Field's of Arle. It's a lovely game in which you get to relive the lives of Mr. Rosenberg's ancestors, well, more or less. It's at least a look at what life might have been like in the province of Arle, in Germany in the 18th century (as a worker placement game).
1P 273 - Log-book of the Lighthouse-keeper
17:58This week I go it alone in my little lighthouse. I look at a small journaling RPG about keeping a lighthouse with, um, something supernatural underneath. In this real-time game, each day you roll a few dice and record an entry in your logbook... # of ships, weather and any brief notes. Then, you can also write in more detail about the day in a journal. There, you will keep track of your comings and goings as well as any issues with the thing under the lighthouse. It's a neat little game with a great idea that fell a little short for me. Log-book of the Lighthouse-keeper (Drive Thru RPG)

1P 271 - Project L
28:55This week Julius teaches me about the game Project L. L stands for that shape of piece in games like Tetris (or Project L), for example. This is a polyomino game in which you are collecting and upgrading pieces to fit onto boards in order to complete the boards and get points. It's a rather interesting sounding game and, by the way, the components look really good.
1P 270 - Popular Mechanics: Big Games
31:48This week we have one of our Popular Mechancis episodes; but, this week we cheat! We don't talk about a game mechanic per se. Instead, we talk about big games. What the heck does that mean though? Julius and I talk about good games we each think are big. What are your favorite big games? 06:00 Pandemic Legacy: Season 0 (BGG) 09:15 Arkham Horro (2nd Edition) (BGG) 10:40 Anachrony (BGG) 15:25 Ironsworn (RPG Geek) 21:10 Mechs vs. Minions (BGG) 24:20 Mage Knight Board Game (BGG) 24:55 SpaceCorp: 2025-2300AD (BGG)
