[BGG] Ascension: Dreamscape (2015) 2016-06-09 Can't beat the Cult yet, but I'm only a few games in. Excellent version of Ascension. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Onirim (second edition) (2014) 2016-06-07 Such an original and enjoyable card game. Still haven't gotten to the expansions. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Reiner Knizia's Decathlon (2003) Thumbs Up! 2016-06-06 Some clever mini-dice games mixed in with some mediocre ones. [SGOYT]

[BGG] 30 Rails (2016) Thumbs Up! 2016-06-04 Dice, connections, and shares in 10 minutes. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Magic: The Gathering – Arena of the Planeswalkers (2015) 2016-06-03 Even more fun than Heroscape. I played against the Solo System decks. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Cinq-O (2003) 2016-06-03 Easily my dice game with the best ratio of fun (a lot) to time (very little). [SGOYT]
[BGG] Valley of the Kings (2014) 2016-06-02 One of my favorite deck builders with unique set scoring. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Pandemic: The Cure (2014) Thumbs Up! 2016-06-01 Challenge attempt. Minimizing losses for bonus points is tricky. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Bowling Solitaire (1969) Thumbs Up! 2016-06-01 Practice for the upcoming league. Thematic game played with few cards. [SGOYT]

[BGG] Friday (2011) Thumbs Up! 2016-05-31 Solo deck builder with several levels of difficulty. Enough said. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Apex Theropod Deck-Building Game (2015) 2016-05-30 I'm in deck-builder heaven. Or dinosaur hell. One or the other. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Pandemic: The Cure (2014) Thumbs Up! 2016-05-29 Entry in the Pandemic: The Cure challenge. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Catan Dice Game (2007) 2016-05-29 More challenging than it looks, and it would be hard to find a better 10-minute dice game. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Pacal (1999) 2016-05-28 Fast, relaxing puzzle that's fun for a few tries. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Cinq-O (2003) 2016-05-27 Much better than average dice game that's quick to play and a lot of fun for a game or two. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Legendary: A Marvel Deck Building Game (2012) 2016-05-26 Villains are taking over my deck-builder, and I love it! But I hate the small washed-out card text. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Viticulture Essential Edition (2015) Thumbs Up! 2016-05-25 Automa finally got taken down after Papa gave me the Cottage of Lucky Visitor Cards. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Glass Road (2013) Thumbs Up! 2016-05-24 My first few plays were not the blowout experience I was expecting, but it might be that Snowdonia is a tough act to follow. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Snowdonia (2012) 2016-05-23 Clear the rubble, lay your track, and score your points. Excellent solo experience with interesting choices on every turn, but never makes your brain ache. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Splendor (2014) 2016-05-23 Fast, fun, dice-based solitaire. Feels a lot like the multiplayer game. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Tsuro (2004) 2016-05-21 Relaxing and nice-looking tile-laying puzzle with several solo variants to choose from in the BGG forums. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Oceania (2004) 2016-05-21 Relaxing, simple, great-looking tile-laying game. Travels well and plays fast. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Castellion (2015) 2016-05-20 Challenging tile placement game with simple rules and plenty of depth and variability. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Imperial Settlers (2014) 2016-05-19 Definitely feeling this one. Four factions to play with, and tons of cards to learn. It will take me a while to get to the solo campaign and the expansions, and I'm looking forward to it. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Onirim (second edition) (2014) 2016-05-18 Seemingly simple card game that reveals additional strategies with more plays. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Unpublished Prototype (0) 2016-05-17 I played one of my own games. It needs tons of work. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Ascension: Realms Unraveled (2014) 2016-05-16 Not as quick as my Apprentice deck, but the multi faction and transform cards are a lot of fun. The solo rules need to be tweaked a little to give the Cult dummy player more of a chance. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Peloponnes Card Game (2015) 2016-05-15 Less than perfect rules translation. Probably a fun mini civilization-building game in here somewhere. Plays quick even with a poor understanding of the rules. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Project Dreamscape (2015) 2016-05-14 A fast, clever, and nice-looking card game that I am looking forward to trying with the various combinations of expansion cards [SGOYT]
[BGG] Commissioned (2016) 2016-05-13 Solid medium-weight co-op with some deck-building and lots of historical flavor. The religious theme works great: it's informative, but it doesn't preach at you. Plays solo with hardly any changes to… [SGOYT]
[BGG] Valley of the Kings (2014) 2016-05-12 Egyptian-themed deck-builder with set-collection and card-scrapping for scoring. A step-up in complexity and time from Star Realms and Ascension. I like it! [SGOYT]
[BGG] Fuse (2015) Thumbs Up! 2016-05-11 10-minute dice-rolling puzzle game with sound effects. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Tiny Epic Galaxies (2015) 2016-05-11 Great dice and art with interesting mechanics and several solo opponents to defeat, but I never get excited about the dice rolls. OK game which is sort of tiny but hardly epic. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Suburbia (2012) Thumbs Up! 2016-05-10 One of my favorite solo games, and I prefer it to multiplayer. City-building, tile-laying, and just enough trouble from Dale the Bot to make every game different, challenging, and fun. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Roll Through the Ages: The Iron Age with Mediterranean Expansion (2014) 2016-05-09 Just the right mix of dice and civilization building in a short amount of time. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Mini Rogue (2016) 2016-05-08 Dice and dungeons in a short card game works well here. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Flip City (2014) 2016-05-08 Fast, simple, and unique mini deck builder that I play using my solo house rules. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Star Realms (2014) Thumbs Up! 2016-05-06 The Hive is a simple and fast solo variant for Star Realms. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Pandemic: The Cure (2014) Thumbs Up! 2016-05-05 Co-op dice chucker that has just the right amount of dice chucking, strategy, and luck. Played 3 roles and only had one disease to go before humanity was lost. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Castle Itter (2016) 2016-05-04 Fascinating theme, looks great, very tense, and I want to play again despite losing my first game. A States of Siege style game based on "the strangest battle of WWII." [SGOYT]
[BGG] Wipers Salient (2015) 2016-05-03 Fast, thematic solo deck-builder. It's tough! But plays quick and gives you that "just one more try" feeling. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Flash Point: Fire Rescue (2011) Thumbs Up! 2016-05-02 Light puzzle game you can setup and play in less than an hour. Make up a story as you play. Not as fun as multiplayer, but still really good. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Ascension: Apprentice Edition (2013) 2016-05-01 Quick, relaxing yet interesting deck-builder with great artwork. [SGOYT]

[BGG] 1944: Race to the Rhine (2014) 2016-04-28 Keep your Allied units supplied as you race towards the Rhine in 1944. I spent too much time supplying, and not enough time racing. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Roll Through the Ages: The Iron Age with Mediterranean Expansion (2014) 2016-04-28 Gloriously over-produced civilization-building with dice. Fast and fun. Plays very differently each game. [SGOYT]
[BGG] March of the Ants (2015) 2016-04-27 Solo gameplay that doesn't live up to the artwork or flavor text. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Space Hulk: Death Angel – The Card Game (2010) Thumbs Up! 2016-04-25 Aliens attack in a spaceship. Your cards are a team of Space Marines, changing locations as they fight off the aliens. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Onirim (second edition) (2014) 2016-04-22 Relaxing and replayable solitaire game in the traditional sense of the word. Great artwork, too. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Hostage Negotiator (2015) Thumbs Up! 2016-04-22 Unique theme with a challenging mix of card drafting and dice rolling [SGOYT]
[BGG] Wipers Salient (2015) 2016-04-22 Quick deck-builder with limited deck-building. Great artwork. Don't expect much replayability. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Viticulture Essential Edition (2015) Thumbs Up! 2016-04-21 I was crushed by Automa in my first game. Grapes of wrath, indeed! [SGOYT]
[BGG] Flash Point: Fire Rescue (2011) Thumbs Up! 2016-04-18 Civic budget cuts meant only a single fire fighter responded, and many lives were lost. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Pandemic: The Cure (2014) Thumbs Up! 2016-04-16 [SGOYT]
[BGG] Flip City (2014) 2016-04-16 Played using my solo house rules. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Healthy Heart Hospital (2015) 2016-04-15 Definitely NOT feeling it on this one. Poor production, muddled rules, lackluster solo play. And expensive. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Ascension: Apprentice Edition (2013) 2016-04-15 Basic but very fun and fast. Hard to beat for six bucks. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Forbidden Island (2010) Thumbs Up! 2016-04-15 Simple, quick puzzle. Save it for gaming with the kids. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Star Realms (2014) Thumbs Up! 2016-04-14 Played three solo games with Nemesis Beast from the Gambit set, and fan cards Replicators and The Shadows. The fan cards are awesome. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Freedom: The Underground Railroad (2012) Thumbs Up! 2016-04-12 Challenging and fun. Thematic with historical detail. Very replayable. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Hero of Weehawken (2011) 2016-04-10 Unique game with tons of historical detail. Plays quickly, lots of variety, and very fun. How many historical games can say that? [SGOYT]
