In this episode Scruffy and Norm welcome Dan Leacy, industry insider and lover of small footprint games. The three of them then take a deep dive into the print and play game Orchard: 9 Card Solitaire Game as well as diving into the world of small box games, who are these games for? What is their appeal and now that we've played Orchard which other small games should we look out for? In typical Always Player One fashion we go off the beaten path in our conversation and end up covering a wide variety of topics including the interesting concept of using board games as an exercise in mental wellness. For such a small game there sure was a lot for us to unpack!
