Zero Budget Geek plays a Solo Variant to Dead of Winter which you can find here: http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1218236/testing-solo-variant Dead of Winter: A Crossroads Game, the first game in this series, puts 2-5 players in a small, weakened colony of survivors in a world where most of humanity is either dead or diseased, flesh-craving monsters. Each player leads a faction of survivors with dozens of different characters in the game. Dead of Winter is a meta-cooperative psychological survival game. This means players are working together toward one common victory condition — but for each individual player to achieve victory, he must also complete his personal secret objective. This secret objective could relate to a psychological tick that's fairly harmless to most others in the colony, a dangerous obsession that could put the main objective at risk, a desire for sabotage of the main mission, or (worst of all) vengeance against the colony! Certain games could end with all players winning, some winning and some losing, or all players losing. Work toward the group's goal, but don't get walked all over by a loudmouth who's looking out only for his own interests! Dead of Winter is an experience that can be accomplished only through the medium of tabletop games. It's a story-centric game about surviving through a harsh winter in an apocalyptic world. The survivors are all dealing with their own psychological imperatives, but must still find a way to work together to fight off outside threats, resolve crises, find food and supplies, and keep the colony's morale up. Dead of Winter has players making frequent, difficult, heavily- thematic, wildly-varying decisions that often have them deciding between what is best for the colony and what is best for themselves.

It's the end of May, and that means time to look back at the hotness for this month and why some games have jumped into the limelight (and others remain). First up this week, we're talking about our World Cup contest for Sci Fi games, coming up in 2 weeks. You can enter the contest here for a chance to win a free sci fi board game. 2018 World Cup of Science Fiction Board Games Contest Our question of the week this week asked everyone what games they have replaced components for and why (in honor of the horrible little coins in Nusfjord). For our acquisition disorders, Anthony looked at the new Vital Lacerda game, On Wars, and Chris looked at the recently SdJ nominated Luxor: Forgotten Treasures. At the Table, Anthony reviews Kashgar and Chris looks at 7 Wonders Duel: Pantheon. Finally, we delve into the 15 games at the top of the BGG Hotness during the week of 5/25.

Here is a quick run through of the solo card game, Friday. Enjoy!
It is time! Just like we did last year, and just like we will probably do every year going forward, Anthony and Jason sat with Kevin Erskine of the 1 Player Guild on BGG to talk about the People's Choice Top 100 Solo Games for 2017!
Today, we present Part One where we discuss some of the broader trends and themes of the Top 100. Then we get into some commentary about numbers 100 to 51, which you could see live on Kevin's GeekList:
We were sensitive to spoilers in this episode, so it may seem a bit short. We hope you enjoy some of our banter for this week, and also hope you stay tuned when we discuss the full list, including the number one game, next week!
