Since 31st March I have been running the 1 Player Guild Gaming Awards where we have been nominating and voting on what we feel are the best solitaire games, solitaire variants and expansions released in 2016.

There were five categories relating to solitaire gaming as well as three Hall of Fame categories.

Hall of Fame (Game Designers)


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.

This Geeklist shows the six game designers that made the final vote. Voting will last until April 30th.

For a full list of all nominated games for this category please look here.

Finally, congratulations to all those nominated. I hope these awards go someway to show how much we appreciate the hard work and time that goes into designing, producing and supplying these games we enjoy so much.

Category Winner!

Total votes received: 49

I feel as though the designer of the Oniverse should be nominated.

Shadi has designed some very well loved games which really pushed me into solitaire gaming. Sadly Nautilion hasn't got the distribution it deserves yet but hopefully that will be rectified soon!

Some of his games may divide opinion but no one can deny the games are often recommended and great for the hobby

Uwe designs nearly every one of his games with solo modes. There are so many great games to his credit that will be on the solo HoF list in the coming years. Just to name the games in my library:

Agricola
Glass Road
Ora et Labora
At the Gates of Loyang
Le Havre

I never felt I would be able to play historical games that are big, complex and sprawling with four asymmetrical sides (his Counter Insurgency - COIN series of games from GMT) as solo games. This series lets me do that.

The COIN series has been super popular and every game lets you now play as any side (which all play different) so buying any ONE game is almost like buying FOUR games.

Liberty or Death: The American Insurrection
Falling Sky: The Gallic Revolt Against Caesar

And of course.

Forge War
Gloomhaven

Perhaps a little premature for the hall of fame but what a start.
