Table for One Episode 5 – Solo Challenges on BGG and Facebook

It’s that time of the week again! Table for One is back with Episode 5. This week I’m talking about one of the games I’ve been getting to the table a lot lately – Guilds of London. I look at the game’s official solo variant rules and how it compares to the base game, as well as some of the specific things I like and dislike about this version compared to the multiplayer version.

In the second segment, I discuss some of the dexterity games I enjoy playing to unwind at the end of a long game, and how these simple yet challenging little games can offer a unique, and exciting experience that doesn’t require a lot of brain power after a long day of work.

Finally, in the feature segment, I talk about my recent discovery of solo challenges on Board Game Geek and Facebook. These challenges have introduced me a ton of new and exciting solo variants, as well as a vibrant community of gamers discussing and interacting about their most recent game plays, favorite solo games, and much more. It’s a lot of fun to share notes, compare high scores, and work your way through tough challenges together. Check out episode 5:
