My wife and daughter gave me it for Xmas this year. I said: you realize you're going to have to play it one of these Saturdays or Sundays. They were like, "Oh. Ok. We guess." Then again, my teenager daughter wants me to DM a Numenera adventure for her birthday party this year, so they might actually mean that.

I finally got a group together to play it a few weeks ago, it was super fun.  Only problem is finding people willing to commit to the time needed to play again.

Every time this pops up, I consider it and then realize I will literally never play it. I have 50 other heavy games that seem more interesting that I haven't even played yet.

Yeah - I have 73 games I want to get on the table that are sitting on my shelf, and my friends all have dozens of their own great games we need to play.  And I have Rising Suns, Deep Madness and a few others coming this year, still.

What can you tell me about gaming and fun in Charlotte, NC?

Hate by CMON  Kickstarter ONLY (no retail release)

A 'league' game where 2 to 6 players have multiple battles to try to gain control over a blighted landscape inspired by a comic book Apocalyptic setting.  While I like legacy, I don't like these league games as much as you always end up waiting for someone to get around to playing... however, it is a beautiful game with large minis.  This is one of those games I'll regret passing on rather than regret backing, but I thought I should mention it.

(Rising Sun is starting fulfillment, essentially 2.5 months early).

Finally got my copy of Antiquity V3 and played 1 2 player.  It's not nearly as heavy as I expected, I'd characterize it as more a middleweight game.  Very solid and fun though, with the extreme fiddliness reducing that slightly.

Why don't you try our other games?

It's basically two games - the strategy game and how to organize the damn thing.

It's really, really good though.

When mine came in, I had KDM out on the table, put it in the studio. Had to put up KDM to use the table for the holidays, Gloomhaven went into the storage closet... I really should bust it out at some point. Or sell off most of my games to free up space :D

I mistakenly thought that I wouldn't have trouble getting all the shit back in the box after I punched out the pieces.   awesome, for real

Yea I opened it, looked at the pieces, looked at the box, looked at my shelf and put it back unpunched.

My friends all bought those plastic collection boxes with the inlays. (Don’t know what they’re called) for Gloomhaven.

Because it doesn’t fit back into the box once you opened everything.

Got into a couple of games of Tzolkin.  It's pretty bad ass.  The way the gears change the board and the planning involved is spectacular.  Highly recommend this one.

One of my favorite games. Half of that design team has something new with a similar theme coming out this year I'm pretty curious about. No spinning gears, but seems promising regardless: https://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/229853/teotihuacan-city-gods

What are the best quick solo game options? I have Friday and it's pretty good, if ball crushingly tough.

I heard One Deck Dungeon can fit this, too - but I'm not sure how it looks.

One Deck Dungeon is good. It's very much in the Roguelike vein though. You're just going to get beaten down repeatedly before you win, and some of that will be due to just bad luck.

I've got plenty of other solo games to recommend, but you said quick, so I'll rule out things like Spirit Island, Mage Knight, Gloomhaven, etc. Unfortunately, I don't tend to like quick games, so I'm a bit lacking in experience here. Hostage Negotiator might be of some interest. It's got lots of little micro expansions you can use to mix things up once you beat it. I haven't actually played any of them, but the Oniverse games are meant to be pretty good solo and play quickly. Then there's the Forbidden Island and Forbidden Desert games. I've heard some people talking up Lost Expedition also.

You might want to check out the 1 Player Guild on BGG, or the Top Solo Games of the Year list they do.

Thanks very much for this info, the game is great and perfect for what I was looking for.

I hosed the rules in the first play, so I'm not counting it. My second play I made it to the easy boss barely as a Paladin, but the boss trounced me first round.

I'm not sure I'll play Friday again, ODD is exactly what I wanted, if a bit long.
