"In any case you should bring a certain patience to the game. If [thing=295947]Cascadia[/thing]'s rules (great game!) tax your attention span, Earthborne Rangers might not be for you." [SGOYT]
"This checks so many bonus boxes on my personal preferences, that this wargame is steaming for a 10 rating." [SGOYT]
"Fun game, overproduced like all those Awaken Realms games, just the way I like it. It took me three games to get comfortable enough with the rules to speed up gameplay, but that's on me." [SGOYT]
"Unsettled is actually the great game it's supposed to be. The rules just feel large, because they are done smartly and add great keyword index. They actually are very good to use to look up questions." [SGOYT]
"A very compact game - high on my list of travel/vacation games as it delivers a lot with a small footprint, especially when packed up." [SGOYT]
"A great, rules light, solo depiction of the US invasion of Betio island in 1943. Very much recommended!" [SGOYT]
"Now that is a Kickstarter that gives me exactly what I want for the five currency units invested!" [SGOYT]
"Heavily endorsed for dice chuckers like me. Western film music not included." [SGOYT]
"Dawn of the Zeds is such an excellently produced game and works great solo as well as coop. For sure one of my all-time top ten solo games." [SGOYT]
"From a solo perspective I'd say it's more fulfilling to play two-handed than the solo version and I prefer to play Pax Viking with more players rather than by myself." [SGOYT]
"You have to applaud Ion/Sierra Madre Games for giving a gamer multiple entry points to access a complicated game." [SGOYT]
"Space Race has an interesting twist on a fixed round VP game that incorporates the theme very well." [SGOYT]
"TAL makes for an excellent solo easy war game with some RPG elements. Less content than newer DVG games, which makes the expansions something to think about." [SGOYT]
"Samurai Spirit is a great filler game for solitaire or a small player count." [SGOYT]
"A must have solitaire game, if you ever played Space Invaders. Great execution, a lot of game for a roll & assign filler game." [SGOYT]
"For me, with an affinity to Japanese history, Samurai Battles is the ideal version of Command and Colors. With 40 scenarios there is a lot to chew on - best with two players, of course. Soloability i…" [SGOYT]
"Nice unpretentious game that is great for solo gaming if you manage to snatch it at a bargain price." [SGOYT]
"For solitaire purposes I would rate it much higher than 6.7, maybe even up to a 9.0." [SGOYT]
"Looking overproduced at first glance, DTA turns out to be really, really fun!" [SGOYT]
"Similar to target for today, Picket Duty seems a bit more interactive, especially playing a longer scenario or campaign." [SGOYT]
"Intriguing roll & write, that due to no player interaction whatsover is very much suited to solitaire play." [SGOYT]
"Thunderstone (2009) doesn't work well as a solo game, unless tweaked. There is a reason it took Thunderstone Advance to make it more popular." [SGOYT]
"Vikings is a simple low footprint game for the travelling wargamer. Not more." [SGOYT]
"The first solo mode at first glance requires a lot of brain power. Not the perfect game for a late evening." [SGOYT]
"An excellent production value augments a deep fantasy strategy game." [SGOYT]
"Dice Throne characters offer a nice range of different abilities to activate with your dice rolls." [SGOYT]
"Space Hulk DA transports the theme very well and plays quickly-ish once you have the 4-step process down." [SGOYT]
"Tiny Towns in solo mode is really growing on me!" [SGOYT]
"FCM is not solo-friendly at first glance, but to learn it goal-based solo play or playing two-handed might be fun." [SGOYT]
"This is a very lovely game that I am very happy to ahve kickstarted. The components are impeccable and transport the theme in droves." [SGOYT]
"Tiny Towns is a very nice game that will have a good chance to get on the table for a quick, not too hard and very much fun game session." [SGOYT]
"C&C really has nice game pieces - the wooden block deliver a great haptic experience. The game itself feels a bit like an extension of chess (a few generations removed), which is not a bad thing. Sol…" [SGOYT]
"Especially in conjunction with one of the books recommended in the games rules, Comanchería is a great experience!" [SGOYT]
"Even not being a Marvel fan this game is an excellent solo/coop game. Of course more cards are necessary and something like a campaign mode would be nice (incoming in the fall). For now the worst pro…" [SGOYT]
"A rather simple roll & write, which will hopefully hold up well to more advanced rules and maps" [SGOYT]
"Kaosball is not easy to play as a solitaire game - drawing one of four cards for the defending contestant works okay, but not great" [SGOYT]
"Too Many Bones scores with excellent production values and very different characters, while moving gameplay along at an adequate pace." [SGOYT]
"Warfighter Pacific is a fun game, but with a host of new keywords and all those KS cards setting up takes more than half the time." [SGOYT]
"Interesting air battle game that in its core is easy enough to learn - if only the rules and player aid cards would help you with that by somehow marking the rules/modifiers you don't need at start." [SGOYT]
"Excellent light worked placement game with a strong theme, that my family enjoys." [SGOYT]
"A great and very quick filler game." [SGOYT]
"This is a mouth-wateringly beautiful game - cute enough to draw the whole family in. Eventually." [SGOYT]
"Intriguing game with a gritty Lovecraftian them, two steps up from Zombicide. Cannot imagine it plays well with more than three players, unless they have a great attention span." [SGOYT]
"Nice graphics for a war game a learning curve that can be handled (if you read the rules while really awake) and a Kickstarter that had sooo much excellent additional content. Works well two-handed p…" [SGOYT]
"The monthly challenges are a great way to play Roll Player. It's always a fun little diversion." [SGOYT]
"Ganz schön clever is a great and very quick game for solo and multiplayer use." [SGOYT]
"Another game with a punishing time limit enforced through the draw deck, just like Gloomhaven. Worked well for three-handed play." [SGOYT]
"Gloomhaven is great and I look forward to more adventures, but with two characters it is of punishing difficulty." [SGOYT]
"TAL might have a great solo rule set, but after loving Corsair Leader so much, it very much feels limited in scope." [SGOYT]
"Decent coop deckbuilder, but it feels much more like 2015 Dominion rather than a true novelty. I do appreciate it's coop all the way." [SGOYT]
"Cartographers feels a bit like a fantasy Tetris and not being artistically inclined I tend to fudge on the cartography in favor of speed. Fun little diversion, although scoring is a little bit too mu…" [SGOYT]
"Even the base game works really well playing two-handed." [SGOYT]
"Welcome To... is a very nice quick diversion, even with the true solo rules. The German language rulebook is one of the worst I have seen in a while, though. Some sentences simply are not comprehensi…" [SGOYT]
"Conquest of Britain postponed. The game feels self-made, like all Hollandspiele games I have seen so far. Would much prefer the main game board to be mounted. The solo game itself seems intriguing, t…" [SGOYT]
"The Vassal version is a great supplement to the tabletop version of NFA. Even with a double monitor setup I like to keep the prined cards handy along with the manual. So many details..." [SGOYT]
"Definitely a great game to take with you when traveling (and not counting on having a table to use)." [SGOYT]
"Maquis is a lot smaller than I thought, and plays very quickly while still asking you to think. After first play I'd recommend it - especially for the travelling solitaire gamer!" [SGOYT]
"When playing Dawn of the Zeds on the blue or green levels, the expansion kit #2 is essential in order to mix the event cards up a bit, keeping you guessing. Great game!" [SGOYT]
"Warfighter WW2 lacks the equipment choices you get for the modern era. You need to offset this with skills (which you don't get, if you begin a campaign) and a higher number of Squad Soldiers." [SGOYT]
"So far War Eternal plays exactly like Aeon's End, which doesn't have to be a bad thing. Future encounters will tell the true story." [SGOYT]
"Aeon's End is a fantastic deckbuilder. The mechanics are simple enough to get back into the rules quickly, and I love the fact that you don't shuffle the deck - saves time as well as wear and tear on…" [SGOYT]
"Fun game, but it always feels as if I could rearrange the charts in a more streamlined way to make those uneventful mission run smoother and quicker." [SGOYT]
"Still consider Invader the best of the Zombicide breed. When it appears to get too easy, add some of the extra abominations and creeps to it or mix up your heroes." [SGOYT]
"Promises to be a decent diversion, even though production values are not top notch (I would have prefered to have a mounted board, for once)" [SGOYT]
"Nightfighter Ace at this point is my favorite "QotS-like" game and the Vassal version minimizes the setup time to make a "quick 5 minute mission" game, rather than breaking out the box. Both are abso…" [SGOYT]
"Excellent solo game in the vein of the B-17 QotS/Target for Today types of games, but with many more decision points. Using cards instead of rolling on tables for combat makes it much more fluid." [SGOYT]
"It's always fun, even if it only takes minutes to play." [SGOYT]
"The second expansion is a boon to the early stages of the game, making the game much less predictable on the Outbreak! level. After three games my rating of 10 still stands. This is an truly excellen…" [SGOYT]
"The Outbreak! difficulty level adds some excellent new concepts to the game and it still remains fun and fresh!" [SGOYT]
"This is a great game, with beautiful cardboard components and a great way to ease players into the game. So far the best I have seen from VPG and replaces Zulus on the Ramparts as my favorite State o…" [SGOYT]
"Warfighter Pacific is a great solo game, but due to the many keywords and the slow slugging in the Pacific not for beginning players. Warfighter via TTS still is the best choice there." [SGOYT]
"Skies above the Reich is a beautiful and engaging solo war game. It is still a GMT game and not simple, despite the very user-friendly rules book." [SGOYT]
"A very decent medium-complexity fantasy coop/solo that you can play well with your medium-sized children." [SGOYT]
"Roll Player is a quick and fun fantasy Roll & Keep romp." [SGOYT]
"4AD is light dungeondelving fun, but would profit from an index. Based on a d6 the encounter tables feel pretty limited after a while (the 2d6 ones are okay). A good traveling game?" [SGOYT]
"NATO Air Commander makes me appreciate GMT's great production values all the more. The game itself looks to be hard to win, but captures the theme very well. Looking forward to my next try." [SGOYT]
"About as perfect as it gets for taking along on a vacation or business trip to play in the hotel in the evening. Excellent components and just enough rules to give you a good half hour of game time." [SGOYT]
"Nightfighter ACE is a fun game that expand on the The Hunters submarine mechanics for air-to-air battles. You still have a lot of inbuilt random frustrations and for the price I would have expected o…" [SGOYT]
"Basic squads in LnL Tactical can't hit the door of a barn right in front of them, good leaders and support weapons are as essential, otherwise you have to bunch them up to support each other." [SGOYT]
"I like the idea of a "your own adventure comic book", but this one feels a bit too simple. I'll be back for a second try, but only after I have a look at some of the others." [SGOYT]
"Boomer is fun, but a bit too straight forward as a ranged damage dealer and lacking in defensive abilities to be a long-term option for solo play. Combined with a support character he likely is a goo…" [SGOYT]
"If you are in the mood for high complexity, don't play this one. But if you just want to experience an RPG-like story in your mind, with a hot brew by your side to slow down things for an hour or two…" [SGOYT]
"Gasket appears to be Mulmesh's natural nemesis. In any case it's a great addition to the game, not too hard to play and with great tools for solo play. Definitely recommended. #robocop" [SGOYT]
"You really, really don't want to pass the bow of a fully charged anti-matter equipped Terran heavy cruiser." [SGOYT]
"You don't win TMB without having a strategy. It's a great solo game that will engage you with its choices and make you have to learn the right moves." [SGOYT]
"Zulus is a great solo game that plays quick, has great quality components and oozes with atmosphere. I love it." [SGOYT]
":thumbsup: Even setting up the excitement is already there, even though I don't expect a lot of serious decision-making." [SGOYT]
"Having fun losing a game tells you it's a pretty fun game, right?" [SGOYT]
"V-Commandos is excellent for solo play - the rules really fall into place after a few plays and it is very pleasant to look at." [SGOYT]
"The Legacy game is a lot of fun and makes you wonder what the end game is going to be" [SGOYT]
"if you even moderately like Yahtzee, you will love this" [SGOYT]
"Even with only a bare-thread rules knowledge the game is very much fun. Now to play it properly and turn it into the challenge it is supposed to be..." [SGOYT]
"The key to this State of Siege game is building up a stable economy to give you enough actions and keep the Northern tribes at bay. A good game, if you literally don't mind to get your hands dirty." [SGOYT]
"I really want to like this game, but the cube pull mechanism feels a bit clunky and drawing black cubes is outright frustrating at times." [SGOYT]
"Easy enough playable wargame, but needs some warming up to." [SGOYT]
"Arkham Horror takes a while to get into, but is rewarding with a good AI narrative system." [SGOYT]
"It's always fun to fight against aliens, but the shuffling is not fun anymore." [SGOYT]
"Talon is not immediately as accessible as I'd like, but you can quickly get over that hump by just playing a little scenario. Then the potential for a brilliant game becomes evident." [SGOYT]
"Ganz schön clever lives up to its name and takes some sort of Yahtzee idee to the power of three. Something to enjoy for a quick solo game, but I can also see playing this with the entire family." [SGOYT]
"Aeon's End Legacy works really well as an introduction into the game. I love it." [SGOYT]
