I'd like to think of myself as a solitaire gaming connoisseur, although I've never really played anything solo more involved than Navajo Wars. After playing Navajo Wars, I thought I had found the ultimate solo gaming experience, but Cruel Necessity may very well be even better. I'm 3 plays in, and absolutely love it. I've only made it through the whole deck once, and even then only managed a score of +4, but it was tense and fun the whole way through. Two hours have never flown by so quickly.

Just thought I'd share my thoughts.

A score of +4 is pretty good after only three plays. And you play fast too.

Hard to believe a +4, impressive.

But a +4 is still a defeat at the end, no?

Sure, the rules say so, but I'd feel pretty good about it. I remember being elated with a -5 after my first complete game.

Well, my other two games I didn't even make it past the first deck. Last game, I rolled a 1 about a dozen times. When you take a full turn rolling nothing but failures, that's a kick in the gut. Or lower.

Hi,

I am coming from the other direction. I have played Cruel N. multiple times and really enjoy it.

However I am looking at my next solo game and am considering Navajo Wars ir Labyrinth: The War on Terror.

I understand your enjoy Cruel.N more - but just wondering why? Is Navajo a different type of challenge?

Well, Navajo Wars is an amazing game too, but I feel like the game takes more of a time commitment. They are both fantastic and very unique. I seem to be able to play Cruel Necessity faster.

I really enjoy Navajo Wars and have been looking for a new solo game that scratches the same itch. I have been hearing good things about CN. How do the two compare?
