Jason takes the reins this week with Episode 10 of Table for One. He discusses two games he's played recently - The Pursuit of Happiness and Vast: The Crystal Caverns - two very popular multiplayer games released in 2016 with solo variants. He also talks about a topic very near and dear to a lot of solo gamers - how to handle being an introvert during the holidays when visiting family.

This week Anthony and Jason sit down to talk about one of the biggest (little) game series in the industry the last few years - Tiny Epic. From Gamelyn Games and designer Scott Almes, the Tiny Epic series hit the market a few years back with Tiny Epic Kingdoms and has since launched Tiny Epic Defenders, Tiny Epic Galaxies, and Tiny Epic Western, with the newest, Tiny Epic Quest, on Kickstarter right now.

In this week's episode of Table for One, Anthony and Jason discuss two BIG games that hit their tables in the last week - The Daedalus Sentence and Mechs vs. Minions.

This week I'm diving into one of the biggest (quite literally) new euro releases of the fall - A Feast for Odin from Uwe Rosenberg. The newest, spacial tile-based worker placement game is a big hit coming out of Essen this year, and has one of the more interesting solo modes of any Rosenberg game in recent years. 

This week I'm going to look at how it plays, what I like about it, and how it compares to other recent Rosenberg releases with solo variants like Fields of Arle and Caverna.

We're back with Table for One Episode 6. This week I have a very special guest, Jason Perez, joining me to talk about the Oniverse, the core of the solo-gamers go to collection for palate cleansers, light card games, and ethereal artwork. 

The entire episode is all Oniverse, all the way through - we're talking about Onirim, Sylvion, and Castellion, as well as some pining for the newest entry in the 'verse, Nautilion, coming later this year.
