For the 7th straight year the 1-Player Guild presents The People's Choice Top 100 200 Solo games. It has been a lot of fun to vote and discover the list together. So we're back again.

618 people voted this year producing a list of 1145 unique games. 11047 votes were cast. All of these were new highs.

There were times where I lumped games together (like all versions of Pathfinder). Where I did this, I'll indicate it when the game shows up in the list. I also always put expansions with the base game.

The bottom line to all of this is that we wanted to do it simply for the fun of it.

Please check back or subscribe while I update this over the next couple of weeks to count down from 200 down to 1.

I highly encourage people to add comments (hopefully positive) to the games as they're revealed. I'm sure we'd all like to know what makes it one of your top games. It also serves as a great resource for people looking to get into solo play. Many of us refer people to the list all year. It's also to point out negatives about a game, but just saying it's crap with no explanation does nobody any good.

One last point. I'd strongly encourage everyone interested in solo gaming to visit and join the 1-Player Guild. It's a fantastic group of friendly people, easily one of the most positive group of people I've ever had the pleasure of associating with on the internet.

Along the way, it's possible that I entered the wrong game for your choice. I apologize. I'm not perfect and some of you weren't very precise.

Note: I always get asked. The s represent the number of #1 votes.
Note2: I list how many times a game has been in the top 100. That might be a bit confusing as we now do 200, but I kept it to 100. I only show 3 years worth of stats though so a game could have been in the top 100 back in 2014.
===============================================================================
I created a MetaList to keep track of past years. I'll also use it to announce the voting for future years, so please visit and subscribe to that list.
