  1. My favorite solo game is a three-way tie between Cthulu: Death May Die, Pauper's Ladder, and Kingdom Death Monster.

    Hopefully my refusal to pick just one doesn't disqualify me from the Giveaway. 😉

  2. My favorite solo game is Spirit Island. However, I also absolutely love Turing Machine for its innovate design, and I am really looking forward to Ada's Dream.

  3. Yet another great video. My geek self loves you guys (but my wallet hates you 😅). Lots of great recommendations to add to my list. My favorite solo game right now is Warp's Edge. Thanks for doing another giveaway.

  4. I haven't played a lot of Solo board games, but my favorite out of the few I have played is Terraforming Mars. I like that it becomes a race to fully terraform Mars within a set number of turns instead of just outscoring your opponents to win.

  5. I'm not a big solo gamer, but I've enjoyed Welcome to the Moon

  6. Warps Edge has my attention right now. Great solo game.

  7. Iron Helm is my current fav! Thank you

  8. Escpae the dark castle is my fav solo boardgame!

  9. Giveaway entry. Haven't played many solo, but Heat Pedal to the Metal is my current favourite

  10. Ark Nova is my favourite game and I've only ever played it solo as I'm still trying to persuade my husband to give it a go!

  11. My favorite solo games are from Uwe Rosenberg. I love Agricola, Feast for Odin, Hallertau, At the gates of Loyang,… I love his designs.

  12. At the moment my most favorite solo game (at least I play it solo) is mythwind

  13. I love Final Girl, but also love Cartographers and Azul on solo play. Going to need to look at some of the games everyone here has mentioned, especially Turing Machine.

  14. Most played solo was Hallertau during the covid lock downs, no special rules to learn, plays the same as multiplayer!

  15. I love Gloomhaven playing solo. – Giveaway🎉

  16. Hi there.

    As much as i find Final gril really great componant-wise, the luck and randomness made me selling it after like 20 games.

    Having 15 bad dice rolls IN A ROW ruining my game was too much for my nerves 🙂

    Which is a shame coz i loved the theme and how the boxes were part of the components (like set a watch did before) awell as the package format (like old VHS)

    But… That luck and the so punishing bosses and their advanced cards.. did'nt made it for me. Even when trying to say to myself "hey it's normal… It's thematic, it's an horror movie !"

    unfortunatly, it did'nt worked out. Overall, i don't like those "IT HAS TO BE PUNISHINGLY HARD !" type of games (like cthulhu stuff (which is my favorite theme btw…)

    I don't like making a game extremly hard coz it "has to be" hard… it's a lazy and poor design decision imho, and adding rules over random elements to make it so… Instead of working on making it hard, yet fair is what make those games out of my shelf

    If i want a random game which punnish me on luck, i go and play BULLET which resets in 10seconds

    I wished i kept on the boat to try the "THING" theme box, but the random killed me too much in this game 🙂

    That said, here is my actual solo list, in no particular order !

    -Marvel Champions & Lord of the rings LCGS
    -Bullet ( Soon to be replaced by the Digital version)
    -Naturopolis / Sprawpolis / Rove
    -Calico (now replaced by the Digital Steam Version which is awesome !)
    -Street Masters
    -Heat

    Honorable mentions :

    After Us / Raiders of Scythia / Astro Knights & Spirit islands (both i prefer at 2 players) / Warp's Edge / Resist / Planet Unknown / Guild of merchant explorers / Legacy of Yu

    Cheers

  17. My favourite solo board game right now is Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion! Still very new to the hobby, so thanks for this awesome list!

  18. Giveaway entry: my fave game is the Final Girl series – what a fantastic solo experience!

  19. My favourite solo is Unmatched adventure

  20. I’m in a season with a toddler that doesn’t stop moving so my favorite solo play lately has been Roll to the top. I’ve enjoyed Harmonious, Cascadia, and Kingswood solo.

  21. Giveaway entry: I love playing solo Legendary Encounters: Aliens. It is very thematic.

  22. Too Many Bones is my favourite solo and coop. I love it!

  23. Giveaway….. my favourite solo game used to be Mist over Carassonne or the Card game The Game ( best for traveling). My birthday was past April and I got my first taste of Final Girl and I am hooked big time. I’m trying to catch up with the past two seasons to get it all. Everyone I teach it to also fallen in love with it.

  24. My favorite solo game is definitely Spirit Island even though you can obviously play it with more. Runner ups for solo is Unmatched Adventures and Final Girl.

  25. My current favorite solo is Sagrada. Simple puzzle dice drafting wholesome quick fun.

  26. I dont play many games solo, but did enjoy the West Kingdom triology. I am going to get Red Cathedral to the table soon too.

  27. Well… Marvel champions should be number one

    Can't understand why the hell always that shitty final girl always get the attention it's just dice luck fest

  28. I've enjoyed playing Agricola solo, & I too love Calico and Black Sonata . My current favourite solo game is Under Northwood .
    It will be interesting to try Ada's Dream solo (& competitively).

  29. My current favorite solo game is Tales from the red dragon inn.

  30. Thank you for your content and your Give away! My favorite Solo is Aeons End with Spirit Island catching up.

  31. ❤ that you don’t kill the spiders. We have a red solo cup labeled “Spider Cup” so we can catch and release. 😊

  32. My favorite game to play solo is Arkham Horror LCG. If prefer to play it with others, but if I'm playing something solo that's the one!

    True solo would game to be Warps Edge!

  33. Final Girl S1 &S2 are on my shelf of shame. I truly need to make time this summer for them. I love the theme and only hear great things. Glad I invested.

  34. Keep the Heroes Out! is fantastic either Solo or 2P

  35. Giveaway. I really liked the solo mode for Lost Ruins of Arnak.

  36. Playing The Last Lighthouse more than other solo games at the moment but I think Dustrunner beats it for favourite, for small box/wallet games at least. Final Girl is a bit great, I can't often get it to the table though at the moment.

  37. Final Girl is my favourite solo only game, Legacy of Yu is a good runner up!

  38. Oceans solo designer here! Thanks for covering Oceans in your top 10!

    Giveaway entry! My favorite solo game is Spirit Island 🏝️

  39. This is tough! So many goodies out there but Cartographers might be my favorite!

  40. Great list of solo games. Have either Jeff or you played Spirit Island? If not, give it a try when time allows. I suggest it because it’s a great cooperative game in addition to an even better solo game. It has a really engaging theme, a lot of variability in the base box, a small footprint, easy to set up and put away and tons of content with all of the expansions.

    Are you playing TMB solo or with one or multiple Gearlocs? If with only one try two Gearlocs when you feel up to it. It opened the board up to more strategic movement as opposed to just standing in one position the majority of time and trading fisticuffs.

    In addition, try Horrified two handed also so not to limit the characters you can play. That’s super fun too.

    The above are all just suggestions from someone who also enjoys board games. In the end there’s no right or wrong way to play just as long as you’re having fun.

  41. My favourite solo game is Three Sisters and Calico!!

  42. Thanks for the giveaway! My favorite game to play solo is Marvel United
