I’ve used GeekGroup to create a random selection of my soloable board games.
Wondering if the people around here have any interest in guiding my solo gaming? What should I play next?
If you do, feel free to vote. If you have a particularly passionate viewpoint for (or against?) any of the games listed, or perhaps something I own that’s not currently in the poll, please feel free to share.
- Baseball Highlights: 2045 (suggest an expansion or two!)
- Clinic: Deluxe Edition
- Dice City
- Empyreal: Spells & Steam w/As Above So Below
- Fantastic Factories
- Pathfinder Adventure Card Game: Rise of the Runelords – Base Set
- Under Falling Skies
- Space Cadets: Away Missions
I selfishly voted for Away Missions for the high potential of a solidarity run. I don’t need much of an excuse to have a session of that one.
I know this is a bit late, but I used to really like Dice City. I found it frustrating as there is one upgrade building which is easily the best of all possible options. I wonder if this would be less frustrating as a solo? Any way, if you do play solo let me know how it goes as I think there’s a great bunch of mechanisms and interesting decisions in that game and it would be interesting to know if solo is a good way to play it
Way back when, I had bought Dice City with high hopes for the multiplayer experience. What I found was pretty dull and, due to my personal nature, AP-induced stress of slowing down the game. So I pretty much immediately put it on my “to sell/trade” pile. But the pandemic happened and I decided to give it a go as a solo game before listing it for sale.
I quite liked the puzzle of the solo game. I don’t think I’ll ever try to play it multiplayer again. But, it’s on this list because it’s been long enough since I’ve played it that I don’t really remember much about the experience.
So I fired up TTS to try out Dice City solo. I found it really boring. Caveats I don’t often like solo gaming, having played enough to see astring strategy there wasn’t much puzzle or interest. Glad I did it though as I’lls top wondering if the game coud be improved with teh very expensive expansions. My time in Dice City is over.
That’s fair enough. It’s a bit of a contemplative puzzle… and the realm of “solo contemplative puzzles where you build your tableau, seeking combos” is vast and far-reaching.
