ENGN 92 - Designer Rountable for Solo Variants, Part Two - featuring Keith Matejka, Mike...

Welcome to Part Two of our roundtable conversation about solo variant design. If you missed Part One, please go back in the feed and check it out. We've released both episodes simultaneously because... well, we want you to have it! In this half of our discussion with Keith, Mike, and Ricky, we get into their process as designers, as well as their greatest difficulties and how they overcame them. They also get into solo variants within the board game publishing world, both within the traditional routes and in Kickstarter projects.

2016 Presidential Candidates ("We Didn't Start the Fire" Parody)

So who is "in to win" the White House in 2016? Our lyric video looks at the Dems and GOPers who could "make the scene" in 2016.

ENGN Episode 87 - Bad Games

For anyone who has ever wanted us to "not hold back", so to speak, and give out some objectively bad reviews of games, this is the show for you! We tell you our reasons why you might want to avoid the Witcher Adventure Game (4:55), Witches of the Revolution (14:27), and Shipwrights of the North Sea (21:05). In the discussion at the back half of the podcast, we tell you about our approach to these kinds of reviews and why you haven't heard an episode like this from us before. Hopefully, we review nothing but good games going forward! (yeah, right...)

Anthony and Jason take a new look at games like The Lost Expedition, Caverna: Cave vs. Cave, Sword & Sorcery, and others. Most of our previewed games really delivered! Others... not so much. We then talk about games we are looking forward to at Origins 2018, including The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, Archmage, and Fleet: The Dice Game. Along with this episode, we are also giving you a separate Preview Series episode talking with Rory O'Connor about Holding On: The Troubled Life of Billy Kerr from Hub Games.

The first time around, we had a few designers of massive, scenario-based games to talk about what it's like to design in the fantasy adventure space. This time, we were able to gather some of the best minds in solo variant design for a discussion about how they go about turning your favorite multiplayer experiences into games that the soloist can enjoy. We had a fabulous and edifying discussion with Keith Matejka (Roll Player, Sunset Over Water variant), Mike Mullins (Bottom of the 9th, Pentaquark), and Ricky Royal (Renegade, Guilds of London variant). In Part One of our conversation, we get to know our three guests as gamers and as designers. We then discuss their overall approaches to solo variant design and the different kinds of variants one can make - high score challenge, binary win-loss conditions, or different kinds of "robot" players. If you ever had any interest in getting under the hood of a game, either as a fledgling designer or as someone who is curious as to how professional designers make it all works, this is the show for you!
