That was super fast. Thank you so much.

Time for some more fun in Shadowbrook.

I also know who you are. You're secret is safe with me though.

Thanks again.

Tonight I'm going to try fitting this in to one box with the base game.

Aaaaaand my Secret Soloist has struck! I received 3 items from my wishlist, making for a very happy solo player!

This is officially a multiplayer game and I plan on playing it mostly 2-player with my wife, but I have also seen several ideas for solo variants floating around. The easiest seems to be to play with 2 dummy pawns, roll 1d6 each time they move, and move them based on the roll: move to the next available space on a 1-3, skip 1 space on a 4-5, or skip 2 spaces on a 6. I might also change that to move to the next available farm or inn on a 6--farm denial is huge in the base game.

I've played a lot of this on BoardGameArena. Some people find it too light, but I always enjoy my games, and now I can see the gorgeous art in full scale.

Thanks, secret soloist!

I also got this historical solitaire game from VPG, based on the English civil war. I've recently posted that I want to collect more games with historical themes to try to learn more about that subject, and that I wanted to support VPG (they seem to put out a great quality product), so I am super happy to have received this one!

Finally, I received this newest expansion for VPG's Darkest Night. I got the Necromancer bundle in a trade on the 1 Player Trading Post and have loved every play so far (which reminds me, I need to play more). I liked it so much I bought the Enchanter promo from the BGG store. With this expansion, I now have all the non-limited edition content released for the game!

Again, I love supporting VPG for being such a great indie publisher and showing so much love to the solo community. Thanks, secret soloist!

My SS did ask me about Dirt without the box and said that was coming my way (yay!) but much to my surprise today these two gems were waiting for me when we got back from taking our son to the local park for an Easter egg hunt.



I had been on the fence about Onirim for quite some time, it's been on my list, removed, on, removed and finally I decided it was something I'd enjoy. My biggest turn off the first few times was the artwork really - but I ultimately decided that was unfair to the game since I really didn't know how to play it. So every time someone posted it on the SGOYT list I took note and eventually decided that it was something I would likely enjoy... we'll find out later, I'm not hosting our game night tonight since most of the group is out of town and planned to do some solo games and watch a movie with my wife. I should be able to crack this open later today and give it a go!

Of course, I've been very much looking forward to giving Ottoman Sunset a go as well.

Many thanks An... er, Secret Solist!

So I'm bored tonight, partially hoping my FITL Solitaire Challenge will pick up speed, and partially with my own game going on atop my dining room table. Taking a break, and I decided to read up on one of the most talked about solitaire games on here: Rallyman.

I found the rules on BGG and am just flipping through them when it hits me: I never checked the mail. Sure enough, there's a key in the box that goes to a parcel locker. A package from Game Salute - and my very own copy! I'm now tempted to put away FITL and get this sucker setup and started. Thanks, SS! (Since it's a gift fulfilled by Amazon, they sent your name too, so I know WHO you are. )

I arrived home today and was very pleasantly surprised to find a package on my doorstep. I knew what it was immediately, so I hurried into the house to break it open. I opened the package and sifted through the mountain of packing peanuts to find Lewis and Clark staring back at me. I am super excited to get this to the table. It is one I've been wanting to get my hands on for a while. My wife has to work on a paper for school tonight, so I think I know what I will be "working on" myself. Thank you so much Secret Soloist!

But wait there is more! After I set Lewis and Clark to the side, I realized that there was something else in the package. I lifted it out of the peanuts and saw Suburbia, Inc. Suburbia is one of my absolute favorite games, so I am excited to get a chance to try it with this expansion. Again, Secret Soloist, thank you so much for the great gift. I am incredibly excited to give these a try.

I was out of town for the holidays this weekend. I got home Monday night to find that the Easter Bunny had delivered this from my Secret Soloist.

My wife thought I was crazy for being so giddy. She thinks the theme isn't exciting, but I can't wait to play this.

And it sounds like I can expect another package in a week or so. Thank you so much to my Soloist.

Update: I'm in the middle of a move and didn't post this update earlier. I did get another package in the mail from my Secret Soloist.


A fun looking game I had been wanting to try. It is also a game I can pull out with some of my gaming buddies.

Thank you again so much Secret Soloist!

What can I say, I'm a completionist and I have a secret soloists that feeds into that!!!

They also sent me:
The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game – Trouble in Tharbad

And:
The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game – The Antlered Crown

AND:
The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game – Celebrimbor's Secret

I'm pretty sure that gets me completely up to date, and I no longer have to carry around the list of expansions I need in my wallet. Now I just need to make a list of nightmare decks. And get the game to the table.

Thanks Secret Soloist!!!

I arrived home from a long weekend with Wifey in the White Trash Wonderland* of Gatlinburg, TN to find a box from my Secret Soloist. With trembling hands soothed by the application of of some high-proof spirits, I opened the package with care**.

Inside were three items, each an expansion to a much-enjoyed game.

Zombicide: Toxic City Mall -- the one major Zombicide box I don't didn't own.

Firefly: The Game – Blue Sun -- an expansion that I've been waiting to get since I enjoy the base game so much.

Mage Knight Board Game: The Lost Legion Expansion -- what can I say...I have no excuses for not buying this a long time ago.

Needless to say, but I will anyway, I am thrilled with the box o' goodies that arrived. My Secret Soloist went above and beyond.


*I make fun of it but it's one of my favorite places to spend a weekend. I've been dozens of times since I was a toddler.

Thanks a lot, Secret Soloist!!

I'm very excited to try my new games and I will play the expansion as fast as possible. Maybe I can do it this evening but I don't know yet. I'll let you know how I like the games as soon as I've played them.

Received a fantastic parcel at my door a few minutes ago. Space Empires:4X is was right at the top of my wishlist, being both solo-playable and (hopefully) fun multiplayer. I look forward to trying it out, maybe Thursday or next week. I've got one Chessex counter tray and some fishing boxes, hopefully that'll do.

The secret soloist really went all-out, as xe says there's another package arriving! Truly not necessary but most appreciated!

Thank you, Secret Soloist!

Not only did I get Zulus from my wishlist, I also got a game my secret soloist thought I would enjoy, Friday. I'm going to give it a play tonight and see is he/she was right

Just when I thought it was over I found this gem at the bottom of the package



I eagerly await what else may or may not be in store for me

So my Secret Soloist is EVIL! First off, he whets my appetite by telling me that "War's Coming" making me think he's got some wargame up his sleeve.
So when I opened the box and find the back of an FFG box, I couldn't figure out what he might be up to. What wargames does FFG put out? my mind races. They don't; he didn't. And that's not why he's EVIL.

He's EVIL because he sent this nice note to me making me think that he's a great guy and super helpful:

I am sorry to inform you that your Secret Soloist is not one of those types who has all these crazy messages and what have you. I tried to come up with something and it was not to be. Instead I will let you know a package should arrive on the 9th give or take a day and I hope that you enjoy it. I will continue to monitor your profile and the Geeklist to verify its arrival. I hope it brings you many many many hours of enjoyment.

SS


Seems nice on the surface. Nope. Lurking beneath that calm, even benevolent surface, EVIL bides it's time waiting to ensnare the doomed.

he says. He's really done three things: emptied my bank account, estranged my kids, and ruined my marriage.

How many expansions am I going to have to buy now? How many games will I have to convince my friends to come play?

It's just a game

Well I'm here to tell you this problem is much deeper than all that, my EVIL EVIL friend. We're left with only one possible reply:
Please, for the love of God, don't give drugs to the Addicts!

Not cool, man. Not cool. shake

WOW, one of the big ones on my wishlist. My SS was beyond my expectations, super game with many hours of fun. Received on the same day that my daughter turned 2, so was a 2x special day.

Thanks Secret Soloist, hope you enjoy your gift as much I enjoyed mine.

Fantastic!!!! Very appreciated gift. Got the mysterious Amazon package yesterday after arriving home from an out-of-town gig. Tired and hungry, I opened the door to a wife trying to hide the package; thinking it was hers! I had her on the ropes until she eyed the recipients name - me. Then the tables turned. I was the one accused of making secret purchases!
Anyways, all is good on the home front. Can't wait to punch-n-play. Think I'll park the starship in the driveway tonight.

Thanks so much SS! Well-played! Well-played!

Edit: unless Ya didn't notice; I received Space Alert & Space Alert: The New Frontier! Awesome stuff!
