NOMINATIONS

Hall of Fame (Game Designers)


NOMINATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED


Two game designers that have produced one or more solo playable games that are widely highly regarded in this field. These can be games either designed for solitaire play, a co-op game or designed an expansion that added a solitaire variant, or a multiplayer game that is playable by one player. It may be worthwhile linking the games you feel are particularly worthy of note in the nomination post.

I would strongly suggest that those making a nomination to the Hall of Fame explain the reason for the nomination.

If you wish to make a nomination please do so, just add one item per nomination. If you just want to vote for a game designer or designers then simply 'thumb' the one(s) you want to vote for.

THIS LIST IS NOW CLOSED FOR NEW NOMINATIONS, YOU CAN CONTINUE TO 'THUMB' EXISTING NOMINATIONS UNTIL 21ST APRIL.

Nominations can be made here for 2 weeks starting from the 1st April 2015 (therefore closing on the 14th April 2015) at the end of this time no further nominations will be be possible.

The nomination geeklist will stay available for a further week after the geeklist closes to allow people to 'thumb' later additions to the lists. After this time the top 5 + x (x is total number of pages of nominations for this category) highest thumbed entries will be taken through to final voting. Final voting will start on the 21st or 22nd April 2015.

Thanks for taking part, good luck and have fun!

Just offers some of the most fascinating experiences in the whole hobby. The bar to entry can be high, but I've yet to try one of his titles that I haven't fallen for.

High Frontier
Bios: Megafauna
Pax Porfiriana
Greenland

HF is dazzlingly complex and involving; BM has the most accessible solo mode; PP is a genuine, small-box masterpiece.

Hermann Luttmann's Dawn of the Zeds was instrumental in getting me hooked on solo games and in my book it's the best solo game. Hermann is also amazing at supporting his games here on The Geek.

At Any Cost: Metz 1870
Dawn of the Zeds (Second edition)
Duel of Eagles
Longstreet Attacks: The Second Day at Gettysburg
In Magnificent Style
A Spoiled Victory: Dunkirk 1940

Eric Lee Smith designed Citadel of Blood, The Sword and the Stars, and Mosby's Raiders, and co-designed Ambush and Battle Hymn.

He also designed Across 5 Aprilsand The Civil War wargames which although 2-player, are often played solitaire by playing both side.
