Solo Month is coming in May


That’s right, I’ve decided to make an entire month where I pump out content related to solo gaming. I’m really excited about this, as I noticed a lot of my reviews lately have centered around the 2-player experience. My board gaming habits end up logging about 20-25% solo plays, and so far my reviews haven’t reflected that sort of balance. So this May I will be working to show off some excellent solo games via reviews, a few previews, and have a couple of interviews with voices in the solo gaming hobby. Here is a tentative lineup of the content I am looking to produce during the month of May (in no particular order):

1: Lord of the Rings: The Card Game review

2: Friday review

3: One Deck Dungeon review

4: Mage Knight Board Game review

5: Review that YOU help decide, over on my Patreon page!

6: Feature on Aeon’s End as a solo game

7: Feature on Nemo’s War (2nd Edition)

8: Interview with Morten Monrad-Petersen (hopefully)

9: Interview with one or two of the guys from Low Player Count

10: Quick hits reviews (3-5 solo print & play game reviews, including 9 Card Siege & Mini Rogue)

As a bonus, I am hoping to do a giveaway or two (or three) during the month. Supporting me on Patreon is a way to help me grow the capabilities of this channel, improving the quality of the content and allowing me to eventually explore providing reviews, run-throughs, and live playthroughs of board games. For as little as $1 a month, you can help my channel grow. Giveaways are another thing that Patreon will allow me to provide, and so what I give away in May will be tied to that as “stretch goals” for the solo month. There will be the content provided no matter what, but your support will allow me to give back a little to my readers/supporters:

If I hit $25 then I will give a random Patron (U.S. only) my copy of Chrononauts, a game I had strong praise for last year as a solo game (Review can be found here: https://cardboardclash.wordpress.com/2017/10/13/review-for-o… )

If I hit $50 then I will also give away a NIS copy of either Friday or One Deck Dungeon to a random Patron.

If I hit $100 then I will also give away a NIS copy of Agricola: Master of Britain from Hollandspiele to a random Patron.

Which of the planned pieces of content are you most excited about? What solo game would you like to see a review on (this could help me to plan my next solo purchase!)?

    1. I’m looking forward to borrowing ODD again from a friend. It was a blast to play back in January and I don’t expect that will have changed. Definitely a game I enjoy solo!

      I’ve had my eye on Agent Decker and A4Quest. Sounds like I should probably print off at least one of those!


  1. I’m also interested in the print & play reviews, as I know there are tons of great ones out there, I just wouldn’t know where to start or which I might like.

    1. Oh yes, there are way too many out there. So far some of my favorites have been Mini Rogue, Yeomen: The 9-Card Agincourt Game, 9-Card Siege, and the Doctor Who Solitaire Story Adventure Game (2nd Edition)
