Looking for more very large games that can be played solo to add to my collection. I've listed to games that fit that category in which I already own:

The Gallerist
Gloomhaven
Scythe
A feast for Odin

I'm pretty much looking for games with a lot of weight. And by weight I mean pounds. The 4 listed come in a box that are 6lbs and up.

It's just a card game, and doesn't weigh 6 pounds, but it's big:

Vinhos Deluxe Edition

I don't think the Pathfinder Adventure card games (core sets) weigh 6lbs, but with the adventure packs I'm almost positive they weigh at least that much. Must be at least 1200+ cards!

Same thing with The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game

If you have Scythe, I'm sure you're already aware if Viticulture.

Fortune and Glory: The Cliffhanger Game is huge.
Defenders of the Last Stand is another big game.
Secrets of the Lost Tomb is gigantic.

Those were the three I thought of that I own. All three are fun,thematic,and tell great stories. They all also have big boards, lots of cards, and you control multiple characters.

The base game already is quite a footprint:

If you were to add all expansions into a game, it would get like this: (And this is just after setup)
