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.
