The Journey Begins

Four years ago I started a job that required me to be at work at least two evenings a week. At the time, I had been a member of my local Pathfinder Society, where I had gamed almost weekly for the previous few years.

Working evenings and having a young family was not conducive to spending an additional evening away from home every week, and the Society schedule often coincided with my work shifts anyways.

I also discovered that just because you have kids, doesn’t mean they will enjoy tabletop gaming as much as you do.

On the evenings or weekends I had time to myself, and the family either wasn’t around or was just not in the mood for a game, I discovered solo gaming.

I like games that have a tangible aspect, cards to deal, dice to roll, pencils to scratch, pieces to move. And I wasn’t a big fan of solitaire because I was spoiled by the golden age of board gaming we are experiencing, and I had gotten used to narratives in my gaming experiences.

The first game I bought that ONLY plays as solo play was Friday, still a popular game and something I still go back to on occasion.
