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.

The COIN series has taken the wargaming world by storm over the last few years with four massive releases covering a wide range of subjects, with at least four more currently in the works. Travis discusses how the COIN series works in the 1 and 2 player realm, including some bot rationale explanation from COIN designer Volko Ruhnke.
