My Top Gameplays of 2015
My Top Gameplays of 2016
My list of my top gameplays of 2017. This year, most of them are solo plays. My group did not replay as many games over the coarse of the year plus I missed quite a few game days due to personal reasons.

This is one of my favorite games and has made my lists every year so far. I really enjoy this as my favorite 1v1 game as well as a fun, quick solo game.

I really enjoy the other Hoplomachus games, but had not got around to playing this one until this year. I have only played this solo. I really like how the different Titans all play differently from each other. Some of the Titans took me a couple attempts to defeat.
I really enjoy all the Hoplomachus games solo.

All my plays in 2017 were solo. This is probably my 2nd favorite Tiny Epic Game for solo play. Really enjoy this.

Probably my most anticipated game of 2017, and it did not disappoint. 8 of my plays were solo. I always solo'd with more than 1 Gearlock, as I have a hard time choosing just one, also really enjoy how they work with each other. I intend to play with 1 and use the solo encounter deck at some point.

I assumed this would have more plays in my group, but it only came out once. But, Renegade created an app that allows this to be played solo as it simulates another player and adds challenges. This became a surprising solo hit, as I did not expect it to be able to be played solo.

Another favorite. I love how many different scenarios and characters there are in this, and gives it almost unlimited replayability.

A game based around 'rolling up a character'. This is a nice, quick to play, set up and tear down, solo game so it is easy to get to the table. I really enjoy it and with the expansion coming in 2018, I expect it to see even more plays in the future.

I have only played this solo. I enjoy this solo, there is not much pressure that you may lose, but it is fun to try and build, and maximize your engine. It also sets up and tears down quickly, another plus for a solo game for me.

A fast, challenging solo game. The challenge is real with this game, as there are surprising amounts of decisions that really can affect whether you win or lose.

Wow, the hype was real for this game. I had seen it show up for a while in the SGOYT lists and everyone seemed to really like it. I backed the kickstarter for this and the expansion and am glad I did.

This stayed on my table for awhile, and when it was put away, I could not wait to get it out again. They finally realesed the app, Legends of the Alliance. This app simulates the Imperial player, and turns the 1 vs many game into a co-op game that can be played solo. The campaign is truly challenging and very fun. This tells a great Star Wars story, where you can use some of the heroes from the movies as allies. I can not wait for more missions to be realesed, and this has become one of my favorite games to solo.

Very peaceful and almost relaxing game, whether playing solo or with others.

One of my favorite deck builders. Usually played solo, but fun with others as well.

The only non-solo game on this list. Not a lot of conflict, but a very enjoyable engine building game. Because it plays pretty quick, I hope it sees more plays in our group.

This game is HUGE. It is more puzzly than I thought it would be as well as a very long set up and even longer tear down time has kept this from the table more often. It has things I like and things I don't. I have only made it through scenario 2, and still have high hopes that it will only get better.

I backed this on Kickstarter, and it is much better than I could have hoped.
