Would this game be worth buying strictly for solo play? Are all classes solo play capable?

I like elephants. I like how they swing through trees.

I haven't tried it yet solo, so I can't speak to the first part, but I know that all roles except the Cave are playable solo.

It's a fun game solo as well, and I have enjoyed several games that way.

Only the cave has no solo ability.

They eventually got turned into the Architect which might be a later setting-horror. I will see if Kyle wants to post the Architect at some point.

Every single bloody thing you say is intriguing. You knock that off right this instant, mister!

So far I've played 3 solo games: Knight, Dragon, and Goblin.

What I find most interesting is each solo game is fun thanks to the solo variants written for each one. I also like that there are various difficulties that you can use if you find the game too easy or too difficult.

My favorite solo right now is probably Knight because I love RPGs. This really feels like I'm dungeon diving and leveling up a character. I'm collecting loot and smashing crystals all while trying to survive the goblin ambushes. Then, if I'm unlucky, the cave will start falling in on my Indiana Jones style and I'm bolting toward the exit with my bobbles hoping to survive!

I bought it for the solo play. I haven't played yet but I am working up to it. The really cool thing about the solo play is that instead of having 1 game with one goal you can play each of the classes/roles and therefore you have 4-5 solo board games packaged into one game.

I would recommend it just on that basis.

I will admit I like the Knight the best so much so we might have an announcement about it soon.
