A Review of Sprawlopolis
Sprawlopolis is a game small enough to fit in your pocket. The 18 cards and the rules leaflet come in a wallet-like package. Despite it’s size, Sprawlopolis delivers a surprising amount of challenge and variety.
The first game I reviewed was One Deck Dungeon. Forest of Shadows is a standalone expansion that can be played by itself or in combination with One Deck Dungeon. Is it worth getting to expand the original game? If you have none, which one should you get?
Deep Space D-6 is a “solitaire crew assignment game.” The story takes place on a starship that’s just been lured into a trap by a vicious enemy. Your job as the captain is to organize your crew and try to survive the onslaught. As a trekkie, I had to check this game out!
I’ve been curious about escape room games for a while. I’ve read and watched many positive reviews, and I tend to like a game that offers a puzzly challenge. I bought two escape room games that can be played solitaire. Then I had two of the worst gaming experiences of my life.
Pixel Glory: Light and Shadow was released in 2018. It has a highly playable solo mode, is easy to set up, quick to play and a lot of fun. So how come people aren’t talking about this game? Is it because of the misleading information on the box? Or a menacing conspiracy of wargamers? I might be unable to answer these questions, but I’ll give you a rundown of the game and share some thoughts.
In Eight Epics you (or you and up to seven friends) take on the roles of eight Avatars of Hope trying to defeat the Avatars of Woe and save the world from destruction. The game is a dice-rolling game in a tiny box and it was designed by Seiji Kanai who made the famous Love Letter.
