Solely Solo

Supporter

I am curious if anyone has games that they have bought to play solo only or if it worked out that way?

I think it would be hard for me to buy a game that I would probably only play solo even some games move into that category for a little while... here's looking at you #Clans of Caledonia (although I hope to play multiplayer again soon).

I still have #Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion on my radar but I would absolutely only play it by myself.

I haven't gone to that side just yet. Yet. YET. I always go for games that I know for sure will be good for both 2p with my wife and solo. Even if the game will only see maybe 2-4 2p sessions in a year, it makes me feel good knowing that it'll be an option haha

There are games that have come close though:

#Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion - We ended up getting a copy for Board Game Atlas, but if we hadn't, I probably would've gone for it even if it's only for solo.

#Maracaibo - I've considered after hearing about its campaign. In the end though, it gives the impression of a game that's more complex (with many parts) than I typically prefer.

#Pax Pamir (Second Edition) - Another game we got under Board Game Atlas. In hindsight, after experiencing the solo mode, I would've gotten this just for the solo mode. I know for sure that I don't have the right group for a multiplayer session.

#Too Many Bones - I'm definitely hoping to try this out with my wife, but I know that it'd be more of a treat I'd be giving myself.

In general, I think I'm usually attracted to the idea of a game from Chip Theory Games or Alexander Pfister (and why #CloudAge is on my radar.) Cole Wehrle's works will always be on my radar too.

Did you see the new Chip Theory Game that got teased? there is literally nothing except one piece of art for it, but that art looks DOPE. https://chiptheorygames.com/burncycle#section-one

Yes I did! I think it has a programming mechanic? I'll be looking out for that one :D

Programming seems to fit that theme! I have not seen that but will for sure look more into it when it comes to Kickstarter.

I'm glad to hear that about Pax since I will probably do that solo a bit.  But I am hoping to get in a few multiplayer games as well.

Yes I have bought a number of games with that in mind.
