ENGN Episode 36 – Solo Variants ft. Five Tribes, 7 Wonders, 7 Wonders Duel, and Takenoko

This week on Every Night is Game Night, Anthony and Jason sit down to discuss solo variants. We pick four games with different takes on adding solo play to a typically multiplayer-only game and discuss how they play in general, but also how that approach tends to work, while selecting our favorites from the bunch.

The games covered include Five Tribes, 7 Wonders, 7 Wonders Duel, and Takenoko. We also dig a bit into Automa and how it can help to improve solo play through carefully mimicking the opposing player’s turn.

Make sure to connect with Every Night is Game Night on Facebook, Twitter (@engn_podcast and @bgapodcast), and on BoardGameGeek (Guild 1735).
