Episode 98: Roll and Write Games, and what is a “solo” game?

Anthony is taking the reins this week, at least when it comes to the games we’re reviewing this week. Anthony is a huge, huge fan of Roll and Write games, so he wanted to take some time and share about three different games. Welcome To… is all the hotness nowadays. He also tells us about Steamrollers and the (hopefully) soon to be available in the US, Ganz schon clever.

If you want to check out a whole Facebook group on Roll and Write games, check out the group made by Glenn Flaherty from the Board Games and Bourbon YouTube channel: https://www.facebook.com/groups/224908144790699/about/

We then answer a question from our Facebook group this week, from our friend Corey Mayo. We get into the distinction between “solo” and “solitaire”, as well as how we should regard a gamer who enjoys playing games multihanded. Should chess be considered a solo game if you play both sides? We tackle that question from all angles, hopefully shedding more light than heat.

  • Anthony lives and plays games in Philadelphia, PA. A lover of complex strategy, two-player war games, and area control, Anthony is always eager to try a new game, even if he's on rule-reading duty.
