Hi guys,
I am a writer-director from Canada -- check out my film Radius on Netflix.

I am also an avid tabletop gamer since about 2010.

As of right now (Sept.2019) I have launched my side project, "The Mountain Gamer", a Youtube playlist on an old channel of mine: https://www.youtube.com/user/deadcatfilms

If you enjoy my videos, please subscribe to help the channel grow! My goal is to make 1 video a week.

Thanks,
See you around the forums,
Steeve L.

I came across this easy-to-get-into Solo variant in the BGG forums. I gave it a tiny tweak and I've been having a good time with it. This works fine with original Dead of Winter, as well as with The Long Night. It's not perfect, but it does the job when you feel like scratching that solo zombie itch!

Me and my two other players are getting CREAMED since scenario 6! It's getting kind of demoralizing! 😂

I've played twice and managed to win 1 time. But I suspect I got some lucky events and items.

And don't worry, I'll keep all the "intense" stuff in the playthrough. ;)

Your vote is noted! Thanks!

PS: If you're eager to watch a playthrough, there are 2 good ones already on Youtube from One Stop CoOp Shop as well as Rolling Solo.

Hi guys!  Here are some custom Crisis cards you can print out to add a bit of variety to your games of Dead of Winter.  All of them are very thematic, and they take the Crisis mechanic a little off the beaten path — which is refreshing!  PS: these cards are also compatible with DoW: The Long Night).

In this one:  Motel Hell  ✚  Humans Eating Zombies For a Change!

My pleasure! Solo is an okay experience. Different than multi-player, for sure. You can't take as much time to get an engine going, however, as you're racing against a 14-generation timer.

Here is my very simple to implement variant that I now use for all my solo plays of Terraforming Mars. 1d6, 1d8, and a sheet of paper. This one is for solo players who want to get a little bit more out of the "map" aspect of the game.

In this one:  Dice Rolling in a Euro!  ✚  Autumn Colors!  ✚  Up-The-Nose-Camera!

Man I almost wish we were playing it at 2-p — you get to deckbuild a lot more.

Some of these scenarios are just brutal at 3-p, and I wouldn’t even want to guess what 4-p is like!

Still... call us masochistic ‘cause we enjoy the game nonetheless! 😅

Good luck to you and your wife!
