Flying Solo – A Beginners Guide

Flying Solo – A Beginners Guide

Solo gaming is something that’s becoming increasingly popular but still seems to elude me. I’m on the quest for the ‘right’ type of solo experience for me. So I did what any sane person might do… I asked the internet! And there were lots of suggestions. So I’ve decided to compile them into a list in case you, like I, want to dip your toes into playing with yourself. I’m sure there’s something here for everyone’s liking. I found lots of games I’d not heard of or thought to try out.

Please feel free to comment below with any further thoughts or suggestions you might have. Or why you liked or disliked a particular game so the rest of us can have some insights.

Enjoy!

*Much appreciation to Meeple Like Us, your code made this list possible!*

    1. Board Game Inquisition

      I’m delighted you found your way here, welcome! I do the majority of my reviews in the same fashion as Wingspan so I hope you’ll find some more to enjoy in the future! Thanks for taking the time to comment and it was lovely to ‘meet’ you 🙂

  1. I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your website.
    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for
    me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire
    out a developer to create your theme? Fantastic work!

  2. Hi I am so happy I found your website, I really found you by mistake, while I was
    searching on Google for something else, Nonetheless I am here now and
    would just like to say kudos for a remarkable post and a all round entertaining blog
    (I also love the theme/design), I don’t have time to look over it all at
    the minute but I have bookmarked it and also added in your RSS feeds, so when I have time I will be back to read much more, Please do keep
    up the awesome work.
