Ones Upon A Game

I am almost exclusively a solo gamer and look at the gaming scene seen through those eyes. I also literally like alliteration. TWITTER: @onesuponagame

Lock 'n Load: To Solo or Not to Solo...That is the Question!

Part II and Part III with actual gameplay: All You Have to Do is Fall in Love, Play the Game...

After several stops and starts using the Lock 'n Load Tactical: Solo with Lock 'n Load Tactical: Heroes of Normandy, I've picked up a few tips and hopefully will be successful this go round.

As promised, I'm recording the process and present in a multi (at least two) part series to give you an idea of what the solo system brings to the Lock 'n Load Tactical series.

In this first video, I select a scenario to play and give a general overview of how the cards and flowcharts included with the expansion work, how they vary from the scenarios found in the Conflict of Heroes: Eastern Front – Solo Expansion, and the pros and cons I've noticed or felt so far.

I want to be candid and honest in my assessment of the solo expansion clearly spelling out what I see as strengths and weaknesses. However, I do feel that some of the issues I'm experiencing might be due to my skill level and not the game itself. From what I understand other testers and preview players have had great success using it. So take my personal opinion with a grain of salt and look more at what is actually there and how you would feel about using it in your own sessions.
