Five Year Anniversary Special!
Happy Birthday, SGOYT!!! The first SGOTY went up this month in 2013. So let’s celebrate!
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, whatever.
Bottom line: If you’ve played a game solo and want to say something about the experience, go for it! Don’t worry about posting “the wrong way.” This is a very friendly group, and we happily welcome aboard every type of solo gamer!Guidelines
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 User 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 Albia's ratings page. I haven't rated a single game, so my page is worthless to look at.
Be nice, but most of all have fun!

It's extremely helpful (but not mandatory) to include some , or 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!

This is my first time hosting SGOYT. May is also my birthday month - go figure! So it’s a fun month to be hosting the list for the first time. I think it was around the time that the first SGOYT list went up in 2013 that I got a copy of the Space Hulk card game. “You can play with only 1 player - what??” Of course after playing it a bunch that way, it was just a matter of time before wondering if there were any other neat little games that you could play solitaire, and that’s when I found this place, which pretty quickly became my favorite place on the wwws! Since then it’s been great “meeting” folks, reading thoughts/opinions/reviews on Mage Knight and other game. Thanks everyone!!This is the month of May
Let’s celebrate SGOYT’s 5th birthday with a big bouquet of May flowers (brought to you by April showers)! This month, GG will be awarded to geeklist items that include an image of a flower from the artwork in the game played. If we get enough flowers I’ll make some kind of flowery 1pg collage. Here’s one now
So keep your eyes open as you play - maybe you’ll notice some interesting details that you haven’t seen before!Upcoming SGOYT HostsJuly
