Every Night is Game Night is a weekly podcast dedicated to gamer’s games. We cover board games that have heavy strategy, awesome theme, and everything in between. We also have interviews, discussion topics both serious and fun, and a special love for gamers who play their games solo.
ENGN 190 - The End of Every Night is Game Night, and the Beginning of a New Story
One chapter closes, another opens. Jason has started a new channel on YouTube called Shelf Stories. Please go hit those Like and Subscribe buttons, and please spread the word!
With the beginning of the new channel, Every Night is Game Night will come to a permanent close. Before describing Shelf Stories and all of the new content over there, Jason takes a minute to thank and to express his love for all of the solo gamers who made ENGN possible. Without your enthusiasm and interaction, ENGN doesn't make it to 190 episodes. Thanks to everyone, once again, and we'll see you on the new channel. (edited)
ENGN 189 - That’s all, folks! (For now)
Let’s get right to it - this is the last episode of ENGN for the time being. Jason does this episode solo to talk to the ENGN listeners directly about why this pod will go into a bit of a hibernation period.
First up, though, are some final game reviews. Jason shares about a party game (gasp!) called What Do You Meme?, an Apples to Apples variant with a visual element. Next up is The Crew: Quest for Planet Nine, a cooperative trick-taking game that has gotten a lot of great attention. Finally, Jason is happy to end on a great, fitting note with a review of Shadows of Kilforth.
Please do not unsubscribe to the show! It will be going away for now, but it will return at some point when the time is right. Thank you so much for listening.
ENGN Extra - Beyond Solitaire interview with Morgane Gouyon-Rety, designer of Pendragon and Hubris
Liz Davidson has been churning out designer interviews for her YouTube channel, Beyond Solitaire. Here is another one, a chat with Morgane Gouyon-Rety, ancient history expert and designer of Pendragon and Hubris. One of Liz's main interests is the intersection of design and history, which she explores with her guest here.

ENGN Preview Series 49 - Adventure Mart and Prisma Arena
Jason hearkens back to a happier time in this episode when folks were allowed to have game demos in-game stores! This episode hails from the Brooklyn Strategist, a terrific game store in Brooklyn, where Rory O'Connor of Hub Games visited and demoed a few games.
First up is Adventure Mart, a light deck builder depicting store owners in a fantasy convenience store, selling weapons to adventurers, and building your empire. Instead of simply buying cards, you bid for them against other players, which creates opportunities for interaction and light, friendly screwage. This one will go directly to retail very soon.
We also played Prisma Arena, an arena combat game reminiscent of HeroClix with a low barrier of entry and lots of card-based tactical movement and combo play. The Kickstarter for this one will be live on Tuesday, May 19th.
ENGN 188 - Pandemic with Board Gamers Anonymous, and Top Ten Pandemic Games
If you are not a regular listener of the Board Gamers Anonymous podcast, you might not know that Jason hopped over there on episode 267 to chat about why Pandemic is his favorite game. For this episode, we are presenting that entire conversation here. Following that, Jason also did a video for the One Stop Coop Shop, ranking his favorite, Top Ten Pandemic games. The audio for that follows the conversation with the BGA fellas. It's a Pandemic cornucopia this week!
If you've already listened to both pieces of audio in their respective original venues, then thanks for being a superfan, and we'll see you next week :)

ENGN 187 – Balancing with the Kids at Home w/ Jordan Shoenberger
Jordan Shoenberger joins us again this week to discuss being stuck at home...with the kids. Specifically, how it feels to be a parent juggling work, childcare, and school for kids in the midst of a global pandemic.
Anthony joins Jason and Jordan as the three discuss what it's like to be dads in all of this, plus how gaming fits into the equation. If you're a parent at home with your kids right now, this episode is for you.
Concise reviews and more
The hosts are great. Their styles compliment each other, and they pack a lot of information into a podcast that is not too long. One of the hosts is also a therapist, so there are some interesting discussions on various psychological and social aspects of gaming.
Exactly what I was looking for!
The ONLY true source for solo game opinions and suggestions! Excellent job guys, love it!
Best solo board games podcast
This is the very best podcast about solitaire board games. Not only the host is professional and the paste is good, but it is well edited and the music theme is appropriate for the topic (compared to board game anonymus) I like this podcast a lot and the only downside is that it's to short. I would love in depth topics for one hour+ episode.
Good stuff here!
