Flying Solo – Impressions of Desolate, Knister, and Captive


It’s solo game time. In this episode Ryan and I are talking about some very good solo games. I have reviews for Van Ryder Games’ Captive and Desolate from Grey Gnome Games. Ryan gives us his thoughts on Knister, a neat roll and write.

Captive is one of VRG’s Graphic Novel Adventures books. These are fantastic solo games that A.J. Porfirio and I talked about in these games on the show – Part 1 and Part 2. You can pick up these games at the VRG website or your FLGS.

Desolate is a science fiction themed solo game from Jason Glover. We are hoping to have Jason on in 2019 to talk about it and his upcoming expansion of the game to multiple players. You can get Desolate at Grey Gnome Games, The Game Crafter, PNPArcade, or your FLGS.

Knister is a straight forward roll and write. It is harder to find than the other games but here are a few links – here and here.

A Conversation With…AJ Porfirio of Van Ryder Games, Part One


In the fun episode of Go Forth And Game I talk to AJ Porfirio of Van Ryder Games. It’s been a good while since we spoke last to there is a lot to catch up on. Like Hostage Negotiator, The Big Score, and Detective:City of Angels. But the focus of the show is on VRG’s newest – Graphic Novel Adventures. These are Choose Your Own Adventure type solo games in a graphic novel format and they are fantastic! This is a good show. I know you will like it.
