Top 10 Must Have Solo Games of 2017!

The end of 2017 year is here! In this special episode we take a look into the Top 10 Must Have Solo Games of 2017! These are board games as of 2017 that I believe are 'must have' solo games for your collection. Criteria for the list are games which were released/printed/delivered or received retail expansion(s) throughout 2017. Also note, that no 2017 expansions are on the list, as an expansion inherently requires a core box. In additional we'll cover my 'Honorable Mentions' which are runner-up games to this Top 10 list following the same criteria as mentioned above. But first we officially move some special solo games into the Rolling Solo Hall of Fame! These games are well known and have cemented their places in the solo gaming community with high recommendations. Join me and my daughter Serenity as we wrap up 2017 together! Happy New Year's everyone and I hope the coming year is your best yet. I'm excited to move into 2018 and the unknown of the New Year! If you're interested in learning more about the solo playable games shown in this video, feel free to check out my playlists for Rolling Solo Showcases which will give you a more in-depth look at the games from my list.

Top 10 most popular board games: March 2018

Counting down the most popular board games each month to help you find the best new games that people are playing, backing on Kickstarter, and talking about! Hopefully, March 2018's list of the top 10 best board games helps you find some new board games you may not have known about!

But the villain is not alone. They have access to a team of henchmen at their disposal as well. Batman: Gotham City Chronicles is being developed by Monolith, the same company that developed a game based on Conan The Barbarian a few years ago. The game-play in Batman: Gotham City Chronicles is based on that of Conan, but introduces revised character abilities, two new types of dice, and a new two-player Versus Mode. STUFFED FABLES In Stuffed Fables, players take on the roles of heroic stuffed animals, seeking to save the child they love from a scheming, evil mastermind. The game’s narrative is driven by the choices the players will make during the game. The chapters of Stuffed Fables explore the many milestones of a child's life. And when I say chapters, I mean “chapters”. Stuffed Fables is the first in a series of what’s being called "Adventure Book” games, in which the action takes place in a storybook; which acts as the rules reference, story guide, and game board, all in one! Each adventure spans several pages of Adventure Book, which opens flat onto the table during the game. The desired result for this approach is a branching, overarching story that is accessible enough for young players, while still being rewarding enough for older ones. SPIRIT ISLAND Greater Than Games recently reached out and provided me with several interesting tidbits of trivia about Spirit Island's design and development. Here’s a couple of them: “A fair number of people wonder what the Fear markers are supposed to represent. (Three common guesses being "a skull and crossbones", "a panda", and "a turtle".) But if you take a look at the Spirit illustration for Bringer of Dreams & Nightmares and you may notice some similarity of shape. Additionally, many Spirits were playtested during the game’s development that never made it into the final publication, for one reason or another. However, there are still oblique references to a number of them in one of the Branch & Claw Scenarios.” RISING SUN Rising Sun was a phenomenal success on Kickstarter, raising 4.2 million dollars. Even people who only back a couple Kickstarters a year backed it. Rising Sun is a spiritual successor in the same mythic big box series as Blood Rage: same designer, same artist, same studio and same sculptors. But, whereas Blood Rage could theoretically trace its ancestry all the back to a game like Risk, Rising Sun’s lineage would branch off, leading more towards a game like Diplomacy as its distant ancestor. In the game, players must master diplomatic negotiations, forming and breaking alliances, and warfare when the time comes. After funding on Kickstarter a year ago, Rising Sun’s time on our countdown has finally come. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - All the games in the March 2018 Top 10 board games countdown are: 10. Kingdom Death: Monster 9. Batman: Gotham City Chronicles 8. Stuffed Fables 7. Arkham Horror: The Card Game 6. Scythe 5. Gaia Project 4. Spirit Island 3. Terraforming Mars 2. Rising Sun 1. Gloomhaven

My top 5 card-based solo games

The top 5 of my card-based solo games that I play the most and for which I have not done videos already #5 (1:01); #4 (3:37); #3 (6:22); #2 (9:19); #1 (11:46) "the list": (14:04)

In this special episode we take a look into the Top 10 Solo Games from 2017! Another Top 10 you ask? You bet! This one was supposed to be released along with the "Top 10 Must Have Solo Games of 2017", but friends and family took a higher priority during the holidays. That being said, I'm excited to give you the last 2017 Rolling Solo Top 10 list!

The criteria to make this Top 10 list are specifically "core" board games which were released or delivered during 2017!

First we'll cover the differences between my two 2017 Top 10 videos. Secondly, we'll cover my 'Honorable Mentions' which are runner-up games to this Top 10 list following the same criteria as mentioned above. Finally, my daughter Serenity and I will countdown the Top 10 Solo Games from 2017!

Looking forward to all the exciting and anticipated games launching in 2018!
