My First Ever Solo: Arkham Horror the Card Game

So I’ve never played a solo game before (unless you count solitaire, then I’ve played 1000s), and I really enjoyed it. I never thought I would actually like to play solo, but that last game changed my mind! Not to mention AHCG was amazing on all counts.

 That being said, are there any other solo games I should try? I think I might want to dip into the solo waters haha 

(I wanted to upload a picture but it wouldn’t let me)

I wanted to try this one too as my first solo game :) Good to hear that you had an amazing experience with it.

Thanks! Yeah it is a ton of fun. I will say it is a lot to figure out and a lot of rules and actions to remember, but I think after a few play throughs it’ll be easier.

What sort of error was it giving you by the way?

After I would hit submit it would go to the next screen and say I needed to upload a photo when I had. I’ll try to screenshot it next time

@BenjaminK was having issues with uploading a photo earlier as well but Trent seems to have resolved the issue for him. Hopefully it was the same bug.

I too am stretching my solo legs. 

My favorites so far are:

Imperial Assault

Scythe

A Feast for Odin

Spirit Island

Im looking forward to starting a solo campaign of Gloomhaven.

I really am looking forward to giving SP a try. 

Do you play one spirit or two when you play. 

Supporter11 months ago

I’ve been playing with just one spirit. 

Supporter11 months ago

And, you are finding that fun and rewarding? That is good. I was hoping that playing only one spirit would be fun. 

Supporter11 months ago

Indeed I  am. It’s challenging. 

Supporter11 months ago

Great

In fact my record is currently 1-3.

I imagine it is easier to play with one spirit. But, I wonder if it wouldn't be easier to win if you would play two handed. 

Supporter11 months ago

That sounds great.

Same here!

Haha those are some meaty ones. For solo, can any of them play in an hour or hour and a half?

Supporter11 months ago

Spirit Island plays very fast with just one spirit. Scythe plays pretty quickly against a single Automa.

How long does a solo game of sp usually take you?

Is setup /teardown a bear?

Supporter11 months ago

No it’s not too bad.

Definitely got to take that into account on a solo game.

11 months ago

Gotcha. Man they both sound so good haha

Some that I rally enjoy solo are:

Agricola 

Scythe

Star trek: Frontiers (it is basically a straight retheme of Mage Knight) 

I recently bought Spirit Island. I really expect to love that solo.

I do have Agricola and now I want to try that one out. How long does it take?

Supporter11 months ago

Takes me 45ish minutes.

That’s not that bad at all! 

Supporter11 months ago

Of course, you can be a lot more AP in a solo game than you would want to be multiplayer game. so, for some people it will be longer or shorter.

Oh definitely. Which might be nice because I can be slow.. haha 

Supporter11 months ago

I usually am not. But, sometimes while playing solo, I am.

That makes sense

Supporter11 months ago

I’ve heard this is a good one solo!
