Jason is joined this week by thebrandt, his good buddy from the Portal Gaming Podcast, to chat about some solo games hitting the table recently. But before we get into all of the fun, we give a heartfelt, final shout out to a podcast that came directly before this one - Low Player Count. They recently released the final episode in their run, so we'd like to thank Travis, Donny, and Shawn for blazing the trail and for being generally awesome to listen to. Kudos. For our first game, Brandt and Jason chat about Sorcerer City (5:51), a mashup of a tile-laying game and a deckbuilding game that manages to recreate the feel of both genres in interesting ways. Our second feature is Isle of Cats (21:50), the most recent tile/ puzzle game from good friend of the podcast, Frank West. Next up, we get into the re-implementation of the classic game Ghost Stories called Last Bastion (34:15), seeing whether it offers enough to differentiate itself from its predecessor. Finally, Brandt updates us on some of the latest expansions for the Marvel Champions LCG line, Ms. Marvel, Captain America, The Green Goblin, and the Wrecking Crew (41:00).

We interrupt our romp through all the hotness from GenCon to bring you a MEGA-sized podcast. You guys know that Jason likes to keep episodes to under an hour in length. However, Tristan Hall from Hall or Nothing Productions is too much fun to talk to, so we decided to keep it all! Tristan stops by for three reasons. First, he is here to preview a project called 1565: St. Elmo's Pay. This is the follow up to 1066: Tears to Many Mothers, a historical war-themed card game for 1-2 players. This project launches today, October 4th. Second, at around 15:56 we have a big, fat Top Ten list for you - Top Ten Games for a Low Player Count (1-2 players). This list was originally meant to be Top Ten Card Games for 1-2 players, but Tristan breaks all the rules! So, our individual lists might be a bit lopsided, but that's ok - it's geeks chatting about a top ten. What's not to like? Finally, at a whooping 1:09:38 or so, Tristan and Jason put on the old amateur historian hats and break down the historical background of 1565: St. Elmo's Pay. The game is soaked in historical flavor which we are very, very excited to share. If you play this game and wonder where the Barrage of Heads card came from, this is the segment for you! This last past is very different than what you might be used to from ENGN. If you like (or don't like) what you hear, please reach out to us and let us know if you want us to do more historical deep dives behind games.

Was haben isländische Tomatenbauern, norwegische Fischereibetreiber und bayrische Glasbläser gemeinsam? Wahrscheinlich gar nichts. "Moment!", ruft es da aus der Ferne. "Hatte ich die nicht alle schon mal auf dem Tisch?" In der Hoffnung, dass dieser Satz von einem begeisterten Brettspieler geäußert wurde und nur im übertragenen Sinne gemeint war, geben wir der Stimme mal recht. Denn Uwe "Agricola ist kein Getränk" Rosenberg hat diesen drei äußerst beachtenswerten Berufsgruppen drei ebenso beachtenswerte Brettspiele gewidmet, die Solo Manolo Euch im zweiten Teil seiner Rosenberg-Reihe genauer vorstellen will. Was diese Berufsgruppen jedoch nur durch harte Gemeinschaftsarbeit schaffen, versucht Solo Manolo wie so oft im Alleingang zu bewältigen. Wie erfolgreich er dabei ist, erfahrt Ihr in dieser Folge. Als kleines Schmankerl gibt es am Ende noch ein Interview mit dem Autor persönlich, welches letztes Jahr im Oktober aufgenommen wurde und aus GRÜNDEN erst jetzt ausgestrahlt wird.
