Friday review

Designer: Friedemann Friese Players: 1 Ages: 12+ Play time: 25 Min I prefer my gaming on the heavier side, or if not heavy at least games that can be enjoyed with others. Some of my favourite solo games are Clans of Caledonia and the 7th Continent, and I love the depth of games like Gaia […]

Nusfjord Review

Designer: Uwe Rosenburg Players: 1-5 Ages: Publisher: 12+ Playtime: 20-100 mins Context of review: The copy of Nusfjord is the reviewers own. Review has been written after playing 6 solo games and 3 games at the 2 player count.  Surely building your fishing fleet for a sleepy Norwegian village couldn’t provide too much excitement, could it?

My Favourite Solo Board Games

The best of the best Terraforming Mars – On initial play I wasn’t the greatest of fans of this one, despite it sitting in the Top 5 of BGG. Then I didn’t play it for a long time, before coming back to it solo, and what a decision that was! The game is so easy […]

Sheriff of Nottingham review

Designer: Sergio Halaban and Andre Zatz Players: 3-5 Ages:  Publisher: 14+ We think: 6-8+  Playtime:  Publisher: 60min We think: 30-45mins   I have to admit, I have a bad habit of judging games by their cover (looking at you Great Western Trail), and that also applies to Sheriff of Nottingham – a game by CMON […]

Kingdomino review

Architects of the West Kingdom box

Architects of the West Kingdom review

I’ve talked about Raiders of the North Sea previously as a game that I have loved. From its place one – pick one mechanic through to the simplicity of the solo mode, this game by Garphill and Shem Phillips is one that gets me back over and over.  So of course I was excited with […]
