After 74 whole episodes, we are happy to receive a visit from the Podfather himself - Stephen Buonocore of Stronghold Games. For this episode, we experimented a bit with our usual podcast format so we could have some fun. For the first half, we talk about some recent expansions for Stronghold Games we really enjoy - Not Alone: Exploration (5:00) and The Pursuit of Happiness: Community (9:11). Then we preview some upcoming games from Stronghold - Indian Summer (13:41) and Noria (17:00). I recorded a short note about this part of the pod right at the jump, so please check that out. Afterwards, we really let our hair down and geek out about one of our favorite games of all time - War of the Ring (26:51). We talk about its theme, its length and balancing, and also note a very impressive, fan-made solo mode for it: https://boardgamegeek.com/filepage/141333/queller-bot-war-ring-solo-play. We then carry about all sorts of topics from there, including a chunky digression into the Game of Thrones TV show that we put beyond a spoiler wall. As always, we hope you enjoy the conversation!
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.
Help to keep the channel going! The 2018 Kickstarter campaign is live now and I need your support to continue: https://kck.st/2siW02F A full solo game of Gaia Project First Impressions: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kjkrMj7Z_gE Twitter: @slicker_drips Find out more about Gaia Project here: https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/220308/gaia-project

We've wanted to have a pod conversation with these two gentlemen for a long time, and it's finally here! It was out pleasure to speak with Morten Monrad Pederson and David Studley from the Automa Factory. For those who don't know, an Automa is a small deck of cards that acts as a "bot," simulating another player at the table. You can use it to fill in for another gamer at the table who can't make it for the evening, or as an opponent for solo play.
After telling us a little about themselves, they talk about fan reception to Automas and how they've changed over the last few years (4:49). Then we talk about the Automas for Charterstone (14:25 - no spoilers, of course), and for Gaia Project (28:00).
Listener Mike shared this Geeklist with us as well - featuring automa variants: https://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/209213/games-automa-opponents-solo-play
