I'm learning more and more, that as my love for tabletop gaming grows, there is even more appreciation for solo gaming.
As my passion for tabletop gaming began to skyrocket, the thought of playing a game solo seemed really cool to me. The "old school" games I played when I was young never really brought that thought into my head (and the types I played didn't really offer many good options for solo, if any). From the moment I played my first solo tabletop game I was hooked. I love it! Now I immediately am drawn to games with official solo variants, but also search for fan-made ones if there's no official version. But I'm now understanding just one more reason why it's a nice option to have.
My passion, excitement and love for the hobby is overflowing. My family enjoys games too mind you. But if it was up to me, I'd play daily. Coming home from work, there's nothing more fun and relaxing. But for my family, maybe a game here and there works; not as often as I'd like. So many of my games are played solo, exploring new games on BGA to see if I want to invest in the physical version etc... At least until I can get together to play with my sister and brother-in-law from time to time. :)
Anyone else in this boat too, where your passion is much higher than others around you, so solo is your nice safety net?
