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.

Welcome...to my Shed!

Here's something I'm working on at the moment...fancy a solo go at it?



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...

This one's coming in the Snowdonia: Britannia Bridge mini-expansion at Essen this year...



"Whenever the game would lay track, the owner of this train may choose to lay that track instead" (you still need the steel, obviously!)

The Daffofil Line
Train #1: L.A.D.A.S

Stations: 54
Tracks: 23
Contracts: 46
Surveyor: 0
Daffodils: 34
Total: 157



Today's virtual trip through the valleys went amazingly well. An unprecedented run of sunny weather for all the game bar 4 or 5 occasional rainy days and no fog at all!

I managed the bag better than usual and also got the chance to grab two high scoring contract cards (23 & 26).

This was also my first run up the Daffodil Line and it is a really enjoyable scenario which requires the player to start digging from the off, something I don't normally bother with, leaving the company to do the dirty work while I gather resources to build as much as I can.

Having to collect rubble to fill in the canal spaces is a nice twist and really changed the focus of the game for me.

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.
