The 1 Player Guild is a wonderful place for solo players that creates a real sense of community. Everyone comes together to offer up plenty of laughs, as well as support when it's most needed.

On September 17, 2019, Maricel went in for major surgery. Great news: Surgery went well, and she's started the recovery process! There is a long road ahead, and she may not have the chance to get online for awhile.

She is an awesome person, and plenty of kind words and warm wishes have been sent her way. Aaron suggested a GeekList to collect all of those thoughts in one place... So here we are!

This is a place to offer up the warmest wishes, whether they be a short sentiment or a lengthy paragraph. Even the tiniest note means so much: Just one kind word or phrase can make someone's day.

Do I Need to Know Maricel to Contribute?

Not at all! The nature of the internet often means we don't personally know people, yet that doesn't prevent us from sending out positive thoughts. A kind word, even from someone we don't know, goes a long way!

How Do I Contribute?

Simply add an item to this GeekList and include a message for Maricel. "Get well!" is perfectly acceptable, as every little bit helps. The only request is that things are kept appropriate and safe for all ages.

May I Post More Than a Single Item?

Most certainly, although consolidating a bit helps keep the GeekList from getting too lengthy. Do whatever seems right, though: As with SGOYT (for those familiar with it) there really aren't many rules.

Why is It Called "Save A Solo Seat?"

Maricel made an offhand remark about saving her a seat at the table. I took this literally, came up with a silly phrase, and decided that I liked the acronym... This is the SASS program, which seems appropriately humorous!

That's it! The goal is to collect kind sentiments so that Maricel can read through them all when she returns. Every contribution is truly appreciated. Thank you for taking any amount of time to bring some extra joy to her recovery!

❈ All the Best to You! ❈

The very best wishes for a speedy recovery, Maricel! You're a wonderful person, and I look forward to chatting some more when you return. Expect to read more Obsession stories soon, filled with all manner of hilarious moments!

I could go on and on, yet it appears the Calico Critters can say much more with their recent antics. Also stop by the linked GeekList if you're in need of another cuteness overload with all of the little critters!

Best wishes for a speedy recovery, Maricel! Bliss beat Gloom today in my play of Cerebria -- I hope this is true for your post-surgery recovery as well.

As Obsession 's second KS is going on, it's fitting to mention that I got to know you when I reached out to you to say I too am a newbie and wondered about Obsession. After Jessica, I "blame" you for checking out cool games based on similar tastes.

I am so pleased the surgery went well and hope you consider your time convalescing as a tacit consent to play to your heart's content. Still, here's to a speedy recovery!

For now, it would surely be much more rational if conversation instead of dancing were made the order of they day. You are in my family’s hearts and prayers. Hoping you are back doing those things you love and enjoy so much.
And remember, those who do not complain are never pitied.

If a little bird is flying outside your window or chirping from a nearby tree, think of it as a messenger bringing good wishes to you from me.

Take the time you need to heal.

Thought you’d enjoy this patio view and a big cup of mint tea.
I’ve saved your seat at the table.

I put this game, because I sold it to you (you know that, others may not!).

I hope that life's Tricky Tides will calm down and that things will work out as best as possible. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

I hope you know I've been thinking of you, even when I didn't know what was going on (I've been migrainey and not on here as much, too.). I feel God brings those to our mind who need us, sometimes. So I was thinking of you anyway even though I didn't know.

I hope your recovery goes well, that you can rest, that things work when they are supposed to. I have never had brain surgery, but I did have jaw surgery (they broke both and moved them around) in ways that messed with my nose and I had a hard time breathing for some time after (being a mouth breather with a wired jaw, and a nose that is stuffed and swollen from adjusting to the change, well I felt like Darth Vader, and sounded like it too). I had to have my sister stay up with me a couple nights, as it was tough. (Still nothing like brain surgery, though). But, my empathy would be there whether I understood a smidge of this part or not.

I hope things go smoothly, as best as possible. My heart is with you in this.

I miss you, and am saving you a seat.

Not really a solo game, but I found it fitting since you came out on top! You are the dominant one

Solo or not, there is always a place for you at my table Maricel, and I am truly happy for you that things have gone well and you're recovering. Hospitals are pretty scary and sometimes dominate your every thought, but please know that you are in my thoughts, and I'm sending all the love and positive vibes I have to speed you along in your recovery. Get well soon!

Maricel! You are one of my favorite people. I wasn’t sure what to post here so I stared at my game shelf. One game immediately jumped out at me. It’s full of strong female characters. I figure right now you need to be strong and that can be tough when recovering. I know you’ll be able to do it no problem, but just in case you have a moment or two where you don’t feel as tough and you need a pick me up, here’s some badass women to look up to.

GET WELL SOON MARICEL! We miss ya! Can't wait until we see your wonderful posts with regularity again! All of the games found in this entry are in Maricel's collection with two exceptions which are currently on their way to her at her request. I figured if I was gonna Save A Solo Seat for her, it might as well be games I know she'll enjoy!

Your seat at the solo table, m'lady, is reserved with your very own Cerberus on guard (private joke; she can tell ya if she wants hehe). The cast of Futurama will also be stopping by to check in on you and see to all your good spirit needs! So without further ado...

Royal Espionage

Maricel is directly responsible for this wonderful PnP game being in my collection. This is the copy I had made at GameCrafter and it came out wonderfully! This (and other games) are actually how Maricel and I became good friends after we both fell down a PnP Rabbit Hole xD

Sprawlopolis

A wonderful game from Buttonshy that I know is in Maricel's collection. It's due to it being one of her favorite mechanics: Puzzly Tile (card) laying! Unfortunately, I am not doing too well today. Two games played so far, and two losses recorded. Well here's to all the bad luck running my way instead of yours! I'll gladly take it!

I'd've won on easy, but I try to not do easy ;P


Under Falling Skies: A 9-Card Print-and-Play Game

Another PnP game made at GameCrafter that moved up in the production queue after a discussion with Maricel. The losing streak continues but this is the farthest I have gotten. Two more research actions and I would have won the game. This is proving to be a very challenging Solitaire Game! And I haven't even started to make the game harder yet!

Apex Theropod Deck-Building Game

I FINALLY got this game to the table! I have been meaning to get it played and since this is another favorite of Maricel's I figured NOW was the time If I played it correctly (and I am making no claims that I did hahah it was a first play after all) I WON! It took quite a few "bouts" with me consistently hitting the "Eliminate an APEX card or take an Affliction" level on the Boss card (I was shedding the 1 strength hunt cards like no there was tomorrow), I finally managed to put together a 16 strength attack which resulted in two Affliction cards for the boss which were enough to kill him! It must have been the Professor keeping a watchful eye on me making sure I would survive! This was a lot of fun! I don't think it will make it into my top 20 but it is an excellent solo-deck-building experience.

Euphoria: Build a Better Dystopia with Euphoria: Ignorance Is Bliss

My all-time favorite Solo Game. I love Stonemaier Games. In my top 5 games of all time, solo or otherwise, they occupy 3 spots. Before the release of this expansion, Scythe & Viticulture typically ranked higher. But the fact I can now play this amazing dice-worker placement game solo has absolutely solidified it atop my list. This might have something to do with this game, unlike most people, was my introduction to the incredible design work of Jamey Stegmaier. Viticulture, which was most peoples introduction, is an amazing game as well but I am not particularly a wine person. Scythe was my all-time favorite Stonemaier game even though I don't care for it solo. It, like Xia: Legends of a Drift System my #1 all time favorite game, just works so well mutli-player and I have played them so many times that way that solo with an AI just won't cut it. For those experiences I NEED other players. Euphoria and Viticultre on the other hand both sing with an automa deck. Now that I have one for both, Euphoria is the winner in my home!

Maricel, I see you don't have any recorded plays of this. You do own it, and you said you have the expansion in the comments for it's entry in your collection. I hope you give this amazing game a fair shake because it is SUPER GOOD! JUST LIKE YOU! Please take it easy and continue your amazing recovery! You are missed and our community is better with your contributions. Stay safe and we are all looking forward to the day when you are back at 100%!

So from the entire cast of Futurama and your own personal Cerberus, all the best in your recovery! May it be swift, may each day be 100% better than the last and please don't leave us like this again!
