Episode 109 – Kickstarter Roundup: Expedition, Sailing Towards Osiris, End of the Trail, Tiny Epic Zombies

Liz and Jeremy are back! The creative minds behind Jambalaya Plays Games (https://jambalayaplaysgames.com/) and Beyond Solitaire (http://www.beyondsolitaire.net/) are here to share about their continuing and terrible KS acquisition disorders!

For the Kickstarter preview this week, we talk about a game that’s already out and whose expansion is (or, at least, should be) live as we drop the episode – Expedition (4:17). It’s a card-base RPG that has an app, as well as tons of fan-created content. These are not things that every gamer looks forward to! They break down whether this project integrates those things in ways that folks might find appealing.

We then turn to some recently delivered games. Jeremy tells us about Sailing Toward Osiris from Daily Magic Games (13:03), a gateway-level worker placement game from the same publishing house as the Valeria line of games. Liz then shares about End of the Trail (18:54), a clever little card game with some bluffing and negotiation that also has a solo mode. Finally, for our main event, Jason lets everyone know what he thought of Tiny Epic Zombies (23:25) while Jeremy pitches in with his opinions about the overall Tiny Epic project.
