Since March 30th 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 2020.

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

Best Solitaire Game of 2020


These were games that the guild felt represented the best of those released in 2020. The game must have been listed in the geek database as having a minimum of 1 player or be a fully co-operative game in which a single player can play one, or multiple roles. Print and play games also welcome as long as they fit into these criteria.

This Geeklist shows the eight games that made the final vote. Voting will last until April 30th.

If you just want to vote for a game or games then simply 'thumb' the one(s) you want to vote for.

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.

I hardly ever solo games, and I played this by myself 9 times in the first month I got it!

I love this game. It sits on my table and I play this exclusively for months now!

3. Board Game: Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion [Average Rating:8.79 Overall Rank:6] [Average Rating:8.79 Unranked]
Board Game: Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion

Not sure if this should be under expansions, or as a new game in its own right...

Faster setup than gloomhaven, great tutorial modes, cheaper and overall much easier for newbies to get into the gloomhaven universe.

This one snuck up on me. I had never played an Uwe Rosenberg game. I've always been a dungeon crawler/high fantasy fan.

But then I started farming and my life changed.
