Table for One: Episode 2 – Playing Non-Solo-Games Solo

Welcome back! On this week’s episode of Table for One, I’m talking about three more games that have been getting a lot of time at my table this summer. First, I’m digging into some recent news in the solo-verse, including the newest Torbey game in the Oniverse coming soon from Z-Man Games and some of the other hot games in the pipeline from FFG and others.

At the table recently I’m discussing The Goonies Adventure Card Game, a recent light co-op that really works as a solo game due to the shared nature of the actions. I’m also looking at the Backstage expansion for Shakespeare – a high score-tracking solo game that I’ve enjoyed despite the lack of challenge due to the quick, accessible nature of the theme and the beautiful artwork. I’m also discussing Zombicide: Black Plague, which I’ve played far more than I expected for a game with zombies. It’s a good one!

Finally, we’re going to discuss how to play non-solo games solo, a question I’ve gotten several times and one that comes up a lot for any solo gamer who wants to play the new hotness but just can’t get it to the table. Learn the three situations in which I play a non-solo game solo, how to find variant rules, and some of the games I get to the table a lot that fit this bill.
