Low Player Count

Low Player Count is a bi-weekly podcast devoted to thinking about, sometimes reviewing, but mostly discussing solo and two player boardgames and their place in the current board gaming culture. Instead of just doing reviews, we aim to dissect the larger boardgames industry through our discussions of one and two-player games, occasionally focusing on a specific game. We are three guys with a wide range of gaming interests and tastes, but all have an affinity for solo and two-player boardgames.

Big Fun in a Little Box with Shawn

In this minisode, Shawn gives a quick overview and review of Pixel Tactics & Valley of the Kings.

The point of minisodes is to give listeners a small 5-15 minute episode in-between full-length episodes, that is devoted more to reviews, news, and more.
