  1. Please advice me to choose which one​​ to be…More funnyRepeatableEach time another pleasureNo dice or chanceLong lastingAnd at last great pleasure as a solo version alsoThese are:1)Terraforming Mars2)Wyrmspan3)Ark Nova4)Carnagie5)Great Western Trial6)Dune Imperium7)Lost Ruin of Arnak8)Meadow9)Earth10)Heat Pedal…11)Cascadia12)Viticulture13)Marvel ChampionsYou can also recommend 2 or more…Thank you 🙏

  2. Orchard is awesome. Squire for Hire is in the same vein and even smaller but fantastic in its own regards. Also Palm Island is a lot of fun and can even be played without a table, entirely in your hand (hence the name)

  3. That zulus game sounds super problematic given the history lol “invaders” is interesting language

  4. Heavy Game: Mage Knight the Boardgame. Not only my favourite solo game, but also my favourite game.

  5. Nice list! Onirim is another great small box solo game

  6. I was expecting Palm Island in small box category. Suprised not to see it.

  7. Great list guys, I especially liked the fact that I haven't heard of almost half of the games on your list. Thanks to you I have added quite a few new games to my wish list 😁👍
    My favourite solo game right now is probably Mage Knight or Gloomhaven (yes, I seem to be predictable too).
    I am glad to see the Ratcatcher on your list, my pledge has not arrived yet but I am very much looking forward to playing it.

  8. My favorite solo game is one that can be played cooperative or solo, it’s called Marvel Champions

  9. Gloomhaven is a good choice for heavy game. Frosthaven will be even more heavy.

  10. Totally expected JG to break out into 'Single Ladies" . . .
    Also, Kingdom Death: Monster is such a unique, mind blowing experience.

  11. Wait, solo list without Under falling skies is like creating all times best rock music playlist without including The Queen!

  12. Would add Sherlock Holmes: Consulting Detective, Chronicles of Crime and Leaving Earth.

  13. It is only me or the video only have 360p res option?

  14. For Gloomhaven there is an expansion that is solo play only and each scenario is only for the specific character class to get it's unique item. The scenario mechanics are tailored around the characters strong and weak spots. I've only done the one for Beastmaster but it was a lot of fun.

  15. Great that you got to categorized them :

    *Small game – spaceshiped for me by button shy games
    * euro game – feudalia cuz I hate vp based game I love the campaign there instead
    * war games – don't like a real history war game so I guess I'll just pick any other fantasy beat the boss game like God of War I guess it has the word war in it hahah
    * wild card – after the virus, from the creator of TM people just don't talk about it so much and I hate that they don't know about this awesome game!
    * campaign/story – hero realms so much to see and do with cards only
    * heavy – I guess Blight chronicles agent decker then it is really heavy litterly haha

  16. Ratcatcher sounds interesting, if only it were a real game!

  17. Not into solo games because board games are about the company to me, but I’m loving that Spikeball hoodie!

  18. My pick for small box game: One 👏🏻 deck 👏🏻 dungeon 👏🏻 also what on earth, ratcatcher sounds amazing :'D

  19. The chemistry between you two is so enjoyable 😀

  20. I appreciate the effort, but unfortunately most of these games depend on the luck of rolling dice… so, not for me… but I didn't know that Le Havre have a solo mode… I will look into that!

  21. Hey! In the "small box" category, I would personally recommend "Star Realms Frontiers". Deck-building dueling card game that can be played solo. Frontiers has 8 bosses to play solo against. It is very fun and fast

  22. There is a game called Warp’s Edge and it is solo only. It has an Edge of Tomorrow (Live. Die. Repeat.) vibe like Groundhogs Day. It’s very good!

  23. Thanks, now I’M stumbling over the word(s) “post-apocalyptic”

  24. The British army defending themselves against “Zulu invaders” in the African continent? Lol

  25. Hey guys! Just found your channel and really love your content. 🙏 One wish for future top-list videos: Show what category you are currently discussing and also the current game with a little text on screen while you talk. Keep up the good work!

  26. Sin duda, no jugaron al «Expansiópolis»

  27. Who play alone? Just play online. BGA, YUCATA ++

  28. I’ve been playing, not a board game, but a book game recently.
