As everyone expected, I'm back covering another... 8 games on the list. Definitely, all I talk about in this episode is games, and not deeply personal stuff like depression and anxiety.

Meeple, Myself, and I

Introducing a new kind of episode to the podcast! "Call and Response" episodes will feature essays by content creators, publishers, designers, and others around the industry, and then I'll intrude and offer my unsolicited thoughts about their carefully crafted thoughts! This episode features Nick Murray of Bitewing Games. What does a traditionally social gamer do when confronted with the prospect of solo gaming? Learn more about their upcoming solo-capable game on Kickstarter, Trailblazers, .

Getting back in that every-other-week-posting groove! In this episode, I slow down and just look at five in this episode: #s 40-36. I don't own most of these games any more, sadly, but I do playthroughs of almost all of them and reflect on what makes these five games great for me (and why they might/might not be a good fit for you!).

It's been a hot minute since the last full episode -- thanks to y'all for your patience. I'm excited to be back in the saddle. For this episode, I compare one new-to-me game (The Isle of Cats) to #s 49-41 on my Top 100 Solo Reviewed Games. We are getting into some REALLY good games now, everyone! Maybe not a good podcast, maybe not good reviews... but... the GAMES. THEY ARE GOOD!

Meeple, Myself, and I

It's been a bit since I've put an episode out. This episode isn't really about board games; it's more about me, the reviewer, and a significant (and painful) event in my life. So this really just serves as an apology for a lack of recent content, an attempt at catharsis, and a personal exploration of the space (or lack thereof) in between "reviewer" and "person."

With the Clockwork Expansion 2 coming out, I thought that it'd be a great time to take a look at my old review of Root (and the first Clockwork Expansion). With both of these expansions out, solo players can now go against EIGHT automated factions in Root, making for a truly delightful experience. We'll hear more about Root later on in my Top 10 solo games (spoilers? SPOILERS!), but this is a game worth getting its own full episode, no doubt. Let me know what you think of Root and if there's anything else you want me to get into the review docket anytime soon!

We're back on track with the next 14 games in my top 100 solo games that I've reviewed! We are getting into some really solid games here, folks. THIS IS NOT A DRILL.

We take a short break from the Top 100 solo games I've reviewed for something a bit different. In honor of a weekend full of board games with friends, I'm taking a quick break from exclusively looking at solo games and talk about some great multiplayer competitive games. I do spend some time thinking about the settings of multiplayer and solo games and how they fit into my life, but... it's a bit of a change for this week! Let me know what you think! ~~~ Giveaway I am doing a giveaway on my All Patrons, at any level, will be eligible for a drawing at the end of March 2022, and the winner will...
