  1. You have a great future on Youtube. Great content, beautiful, pleasant accent and diction, an excellent positive vibe. I appreciate the concise format.

  2. Great list thanks. I had no idea board games could be played solo. I don't really have anyone to play with and I've been playing a bit too many video games so I wanted to try something new.

  3. I bought Now That's Clever! yesterday from Amazon. Looking forward to immersing myself in that one.

  4. For all these board games, which one are your top 3 favourites?

  5. Great list. Though I’ve seen it before, I just come back for the British accent.😆

  6. From this list, I own Mage Knight, Friday and Gloomhaven (JotL). That just comes to show how many great solo experiences are available. Everyone’s list can be so different. Nice list. Take care.

  7. Under falling skies might be the best game I've ever played, and it's a solo game

  8. Good list. Many of the classics, but nothing wrong with that. If you haven’t tried it yet, I highly recommend Dawn of the Zeds. Great solo experience with many different levels of play to suit your style/depth you’re looking for.

  9. Have you tried Hostage Negotiator by Van Ryder Games? It's my top solo title at the moment.

  10. Had to give a dislike because nothing was shown other than the cover of the board game. Id love to see the pieces and and actual board

  11. Only just discovered your channel and your videos are exactly what I needed! My buddies and I can't play together much anymore so I've been on the hunt. Some of the games you mentioned I'd heard about before and was curious, but I had no idea it could be done solo. I will echo what you said the sheer delight that is Arkham Horror. It's big fun! I'm definitely looking into Mage Knight. Thanks for these videos! Liked, subscribed and shared.

  12. Always nice to see Arkham Horror LCG on these lists.

  13. Yawn! Nothing different or new about the list. Same games that appear is most lists.

  14. Great topic, great video. You deserve more subscribers! Shared 🙂

  15. Gloomhaven is not good solo. 7th Continent is ridiculously expensive and depressing. Shelf space is a factor so small boxes that pack a punch are preferred. Spirit Island: I just don't like the components, the board is ugly, the plastic pieces just bad.
    TWOM would be outright traumatic for me. I get attached easily. I agree with your AH and Friday.

    My favorites:

    1. The Phantom the Card game is fantastic. Best game ever, with unlockables story and comic artwork. Plus I helped the kickstarter, and you get a perfect rulebook.

    2. Dungeon Flee is the perfect dungeon crawler. Helped on that one as well, and it's absolutely great, immersive and again no dice. Simple, relaxing, almost autism-inducing kind of experience.

    3. Maquis. I have the pnp version with maquisards, the meeples with special abilities version. Wow. Extremely immersive. Made a profound impression on me.

    4. Shephy. This game is just so rich, it has a campaign and it is just cards. You can print the royalty free version and it's a-ma-zing. There's so much game there.

    5. 7 wonders duel with the free to download official solo, cleopatra kicked my ass. Takes 7WD to the next level.

    6. Tzolk’in AI (Calendrobo) is just 3 pages of AI rules and it blew me away. Totally recommend.

    7. other, older solo games are Warhammer quest ACG, that one just oozes with lore and theme. Because playing 2h is too hard however doesn't hit the table, but I would recommend with 1 less explore required and 1 less enemy spawn. Then it's great.

    8. Diceborn Heoes – it has also a memory aspect, bosses you defeated help you in later questlines. Quick setup, effiicent box, you can save/load inbetween quests or inbetween questlines.

    9. Forests vof Adrimon: the setup alone is a joy to behold. There is just so much love and passion put into every component of the game! Frankly I haven't finished any 1 session so it doesn't really count but I love the box.

    10. Palm island perhaps too light at home, but on commuting very addictive. And you get to unlock cards and tick off cute check boxes. Played the pnp version to death.

    There are so many great solo games…

    next project: One deck dungeon with the 1.8 rules, while I await Ausonia, Zerywia and Isofarian.

    Paperback Adventure

  16. 1. There are so many great solo wargames out there. One of my favorites is "Castle Itter: The Strangest Battle of WWII." It simulates a battle in Austria in May of 1945 in which a garrison of Wehrmacht soldiers guarding a castle in which French and Austrian political prisoners were incarcerated joined forces with some Americans to defend it against the Waffen SS for long enough for an American infantry battalion to arrive.

    2. As for non wargames, I found that playing Teotihuacan: City of the Gods solo was quite fun.
