Weekly Challenge #6 - Solo Gaming

Owner

First off--thanks for everyone who participated in the previous challenge and for those who created great discussions! 

Here's Challenge #6 (please make sure to read all instructions):

1. Make a post about solo gaming. Anything goes! For example, you could post about:

  • Asking others how they got into solo gaming (even if you're not a solo gamer yourself)
  • Your favorite games to solo and why
  • The most difficult part about solo gaming consistently
  • Your feelings toward solo gaming
  • Solo gaming vs. video games
  • Solo a game this week and share your first impressions (or share your impressions on a game you've already soloed before but haven't shared about)
  • Types of games you like to solo vs. ones you don't
  • Your favorite solo modes (Automa, beat your score, etc)
  • Do you prefer a puzzly kind of solo experience or an immersive one with lots of story and theme?
  • Your speculation of which games will break into the top 10 solo games this year (this is the standing from 2019)
  • Games coming out in 2020 that have been on your radar for its solo mode

2. To encourage discussion through your post, please include (1) enough context in the description section and (2) a question to engage other users!

3. Link your post to the Weekly Challenge topic page. This will help keep track of participants so that I can give out rewards easily!

4. You will gain 1 entry per post. You can make a maximum of 2 posts per day for this challenge. I hope this will give you ample time to make a thoughtful post and actually enjoy the process instead of feeling rushed to get in as many entries!

 

Rewards

Besides earning a badge for completing the challenge (I'll be working on the designs), you will also have a chance to earn a $60 gift card you can put toward a board game purchase!

 

Thanks everyone and I'm really looking forward to seeing what you all come up with. I'm going to have a lot of fun joining in on this challenge too :)

Not sure I'll be able to make this happen this week, but I like it! Of course I could make a post about solo gaming without actually playing one...I have played solo before, haha.

You can feel free to start up any discussions related to solo gaming too, so no worries! Things are starting to clear up a bit... so I'm hoping that I'll get to something like #Paladins of the West Kingdom or #Agricola (Revised Edition) this week

Nice! I actually have a friend who just got Paladins, so I should be able to try that some time in the next few weeks. Should be fun!

Perfect timing for this as I plan on getting a solo campaign of #Too Many Bones in this week! It just arrived yesterday and it is a beast of a box lol. 

also I told my wife about the trick shot challenge that you are thinking about doing and she is all in ready to go lol. Looking forward to if and when that comes up!

Supporter5 months ago

Yay, I'm looking forward to reading your thoughts about it.

I will probably do a first impressions here this week once I get a solo play in! I might be able to get a multiplayer game in this weekend and I will report back on that too. I know I will have lots of thoughts!

NICEEE I'm looking forward to seeing the trick shots. Looks like I'll have to setup the challenge for that real soon.

Oh and please send me your "victory picture" with TMB when you get a chance! Let's see who ends up catching up to Skurvy5 the fastest xD

Heck ya! I think it would be super fun! 

I will definitely get that for you! It definitely will not be me catching Skurvy! I have only won twice!

5 months ago

oo I'm interested to see your trick shot lol. I'll have to try to think of some things I can do.

5 months ago

Ya! We have two planned currently, one with Carcassone and one with TMB!
