[BGG] Dawn of the Zeds (Third edition): Expansion Pack #2 – New Player Blues Expansion 2019-05-19 The second expansion is a boon to the early stages of the game, making the game much less predictable on the Outbreak! level. After three games my rating of 10 still stands. This is an truly excellen… [SGOYT]
[BGG] Dawn of the Zeds (Third edition): Expansion Pack #1 – Stepping Forward 2019-05-16 The Outbreak! difficulty level adds some excellent new concepts to the game and it still remains fun and fresh! [SGOYT]
[BGG] Dawn of the Zeds (Third edition) (2016) 2019-05-11 This is a great game, with beautiful cardboard components and a great way to ease players into the game. So far the best I have seen from VPG and replaces Zulus on the Ramparts as my favorite State o… [SGOYT]
[BGG] Warfighter: The WWII Pacific Combat Card Game (2019) 2019-05-11 Warfighter Pacific is a great solo game, but due to the many keywords and the slow slugging in the Pacific not for beginning players. Warfighter via TTS still is the best choice there. [SGOYT]

[BGG] Warfighter: The WWII Pacific Combat Card Game (2019) 2019-04-28 [SGOYT]
[BGG] Skies Above the Reich (2018) 2019-04-26 Skies above the Reich is a beautiful and engaging solo war game. It is still a GMT game and not simple, despite the very user-friendly rules book. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Heroes of Terrinoth (2018) 2019-04-22 A very decent medium-complexity fantasy coop/solo that you can play well with your medium-sized children. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Roll Player (2016) 2019-04-22 Roll Player is a quick and fun fantasy Roll & Keep romp. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Four Against Darkness (2016) 2019-04-21 4AD is light dungeondelving fun, but would profit from an index. Based on a d6 the encounter tables feel pretty limited after a while (the 2d6 ones are okay). A good traveling game? [SGOYT]
[BGG] NATO Air Commander (2018) 2019-04-21 NATO Air Commander makes me appreciate GMT's great production values all the more. The game itself looks to be hard to win, but captures the theme very well. Looking forward to my next try. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Ottoman Sunset (2010) 2019-04-14 [SGOYT]
[BGG] Tiny Epic Defenders (Second Edition) (2018) 2019-04-14 About as perfect as it gets for taking along on a vacation or business trip to play in the hotel in the evening. Excellent components and just enough rules to give you a good half hour of game time. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Nightfighter Ace: Air Defense Over Germany, 1943-44 (2018) 2019-04-10 Nightfighter ACE is a fun game that expand on the The Hunters submarine mechanics for air-to-air battles. You still have a lot of inbuilt random frustrations and for the price I would have expected o… [SGOYT]
[BGG] Lock 'n Load Tactical: Heroes of the Nam (2015) 2019-04-05 Basic squads in LnL Tactical can't hit the door of a barn right in front of them, good leaders and support weapons are as essential, otherwise you have to bunch them up to support each other. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Lock 'n Load Tactical: Heroes Against the Red Star (2017) 2019-04-05 [SGOYT]
[BGG] Tears of a Goddess (2015) 2019-04-04 I like the idea of a "your own adventure comic book", but this one feels a bit too simple. I'll be back for a second try, but only after I have a look at some of the others. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Too Many Bones (2017) 2019-04-02 Boomer is fun, but a bit too straight forward as a ranged damage dealer and lacking in defensive abilities to be a long-term option for solo play. Combined with a support character he likely is a goo… [SGOYT]
[BGG] Legacy of Dragonholt (2017) 2019-04-01 If you are in the mood for high complexity, don't play this one. But if you just want to experience an RPG-like story in your mind, with a hot brew by your side to slow down things for an hour or two… [SGOYT]

[BGG] Too Many Bones: Gasket (2018) 2019-03-28 Gasket appears to be Mulmesh's natural nemesis. In any case it's a great addition to the game, not too hard to play and with great tools for solo play. Definitely recommended. #robocop [SGOYT]
[BGG] Talon (2016) 2019-03-23 You really, really don't want to pass the bow of a fully charged anti-matter equipped Terran heavy cruiser. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Too Many Bones: Ghillie (2017) 2019-03-23 [SGOYT]
[BGG] Too Many Bones (2017) 2019-03-22 You don't win TMB without having a strategy. It's a great solo game that will engage you with its choices and make you have to learn the right moves. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Mike Force (2018) 2019-03-22 [SGOYT]
[BGG] Too Many Bones: Undertow (2018) 2019-03-20 [SGOYT]
[BGG] Zulus on the Ramparts! (2009) 2019-03-19 Zulus is a great solo game that plays quick, has great quality components and oozes with atmosphere. I love it. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Legion of Honor (2014) 2019-03-11 :thumbsup: Even setting up the excitement is already there, even though I don't expect a lot of serious decision-making. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Aeon's End (2016) 2019-03-10 Having fun losing a game tells you it's a pretty fun game, right? [SGOYT]
[BGG] V-Commandos (2016) 2019-03-09 V-Commandos is excellent for solo play - the rules really fall into place after a few plays and it is very pleasant to look at. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Aeon's End: Legacy (2019) 2019-03-08 The Legacy game is a lot of fun and makes you wonder what the end game is going to be [SGOYT]
[BGG] Ganz schön clever (2018) 2019-03-08 if you even moderately like Yahtzee, you will love this [SGOYT]
[BGG] Commands & Colors: Ancients (2006) 2019-03-07 [SGOYT]
[BGG] Spirit Island (2017) 2019-03-07 Even with only a bare-thread rules knowledge the game is very much fun. Now to play it properly and turn it into the challenge it is supposed to be... [SGOYT]

[BGG] Gato Leader (2016) 2019-02-27 [SGOYT]
[BGG] Mound Builders (2014) 2019-02-26 The key to this State of Siege game is building up a stable economy to give you enough actions and keep the Northern tribes at bay. A good game, if you literally don't mind to get your hands dirty. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Healthy Heart Hospital (2015) 2019-02-26 I really want to like this game, but the cube pull mechanism feels a bit clunky and drawing black cubes is outright frustrating at times. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Enemy Coast Ahead: The Doolittle Raid (2017) 2019-02-25 Easy enough playable wargame, but needs some warming up to. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Roll Player (2016) 2019-02-23 [SGOYT]
[BGG] Arkham Horror: The Card Game (2016) 2019-02-21 Arkham Horror takes a while to get into, but is rewarding with a good AI narrative system. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Legendary Encounters: An Alien Deck Building Game (2014) 2019-02-20 It's always fun to fight against aliens, but the shuffling is not fun anymore. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Talon (2016) 2019-02-20 Talon is not immediately as accessible as I'd like, but you can quickly get over that hump by just playing a little scenario. Then the potential for a brilliant game becomes evident. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Ganz schön clever (2018) 2019-02-18 Ganz schön clever lives up to its name and takes some sort of Yahtzee idee to the power of three. Something to enjoy for a quick solo game, but I can also see playing this with the entire family. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Aeon's End: Legacy (2019) 2019-02-17 Aeon's End Legacy works really well as an introduction into the game. I love it. [SGOYT]
