I plan to play a solo game of Snowdonia every day this week, starting on Monday, September 2, 2013.

I will start with Train №1 L.A.D.A.S, and climb up to №7 Ralph, ending on Sunday, September 8, 2013.

I plan to report my scores and give a brief report of each session, along with the contract cards I accomplish and my final scores. I will possibly post a picture too.

I invite anyone who has, or can get ahold of a copy of the game to join in on Snowdonia Week: A Collective Solo Experiment! Perhaps we can learn something about the different trains, different strategies, different ways the events can change/control the game, etc. etc.

Here is the schedule, starting on September 2, 2013:

№1 L.A.D.A.S - Monday
№2 Enid - Tuesday
№3 Wyddfa - Wednesday
№4 Snowdon - Thursday
№5 Moel Siabod - Friday
№6 Padarn - Saturday
№7 Ralph - Sunday

I look forward to the week of getting to know this delightful game a little more. I hope you can join in with me.

Oh, and I'll be taking note of high scores--especially if they have pictures of the end game.

NOTE: If you have stumbled upon this GeekList after the dates above, please feel free to do your own Snowdonia Week (or whatever schedule you want) and add to the discussion. This GeekList should be considered a living thread for any and all to contribute, share, and discuss.

At the start of G (and only once each round) you may pay 1 coal to rotate a used contract card making it usable again...

Ok, finished my 7 game solo challenge...this is how it turned out:

Was a bit frustrated by the rain throughout the first 6 turns or so of Train #7, but that allowed me to build a mini-stockpile of resources without the AI taking off too fast.
