Table for One Episode 24 – Gloomhaven, Clank!, and Why We Play Solo Games

This week we’re looking at some of the games we’ve been playing lately, as Jason and Anthony dive into Gloomhaven and Clank! Learn about how Gloomhaven plays solo, what the experience of unboxing and sorting this beast is like, and whether it’s worth keeping on your radar until the end of the year when reprints are due out.

Next up, learn more about Clank! and its brand new solo app. Does this already very good multiplayer deck building adventure work as well solo and is it worth tracking down when it comes back into print later this spring? Jason will give a full rundown of his thoughts and recommendations.

Finally, we read some comments from you, the listeners. We asked the Solo gaming group on Facebook what they think about solo gaming, why they play, and how they answer the question when someone asks “why solo?” We have a wealth of different answers and stories and would love to hear yours as well!

Thanks for being so awesome as listeners, and once again, don’t forget to check us out on Facebook, Twitter, BoardGameGeek, and leave us a quick rating in iTunes. Until next week!
