Solitaire Games on Your Table -- December 2017
- J. @kinsonUnited States
Hello, and welcome to another month of exciting times with solo games! Feel free to participate in any way you like: Post about the solo games that you play, share your latest solo design or variant, comment on entries that strike your fancy, and join in. This is a very friendly group, and we happily welcome aboard every type of solo gamer!
Play a solo game, a solo variant, or a multiplayer game solo.
Add an entry to this GeekList and tell us about it. Get the most out of the SGOYT Aggregator by using at least one of the following tags:
Add the <summary></summary> tag to include a short overview. All summaries are recorded, as on my overview page.
Add the <rating></rating> tag to rate a game on a scale of 0.5 to 5.0. Only the most recent rating for a game is recorded, as on my ratings page.
Be nice, but most of all have fun!
See something you like? Give it a thumb.
See something you think is amazing? Give out some !
It's extremely helpful (but not mandatory) to include some and describing the pros and cons of the game you played. They're great visual aids to summarize your post, and might help to keep the wallet damage down a bit!

Who is this month's lucky host?! I've become more a solo gamer over the past two years even though I've been a avid boardgamer since 2009 when I first played The Settlers of Canaan with my then 7-year old daughter and was blown away with new gaming concepts beyond Risk, Monopoly, and Trivial Pursuit. I've been posting on the SGOYT for a little over a year, but not consistently. For those that may have not paid attention, I've become quite fascinated with playing Terraforming Mars solo, because it just really hits a sweet spot for me in my current crazy schedule.
*If you have any suggestions or questions, feel free to send me a GeekMail! I'm sure I'll be busy with keeping up with the list and the various activities, yet I spend a good deal of time around here. It's an amazing place, filled with all of you absolutely wonderful people! Enough about me, though... Get those solo games out!The Theme for December is
My Favorite Holiday Treat
The SGOYT lists are all about individuals playing alone and sharing their very unique tastes. This month's theme reflects the holiday season, so isn't boardgaming related. Just something we can share to get to know each other better. This month tell us about a holiday treat that just isn't the holidays if you don't have it this time of year because you love it so much.
A favorite meal.
A favorite side dish.
A favorite drink
Feel free to provide multiple examples of different items as you post different entries! Or you can just lump it all into big huge post!
IMPORTANT: Please be sure to include your favorite treat and why it's your favorite near the top or bottom of your entry with a clear label. I will be awarding GeekGold to any entry with this addition, and images are not required but would be awesome of if you did! Just be sure to make it obvious so I can spot it easier. Thank you!
There will also be contests for throughout the month, which can be found via the following links. Check back often, and good luck!
