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

First off, big congratulations to designer Michael Kiesling and his team for winning the 2018 Spiel de Jahres! Coincidentally, I just played my first two games of this with my wife yesterday and while we both had some ??? in our thought bubbles during the rule-reading, once we played it all clicked and we had a great time with it.

I'd originally considered this soley for solo play using the SoloPlay variant (link) designed by solo play maestro GameRulesForOne, but kept putting it off. Then my wife saw it mentioned in a non-gaming blog and showed it to me and I thought "oh yeah" and now we can play it together too .

Very fun game. Beautifully produced and definitely with this honor, going to be an evergreen must-have game for all. And the solo rules (which I've not yet tried, but now intend to) open the game to an even wider audience.

Once again, congratulations!
