I play all my table top games solo, (there are actually quite a few solo board gamers out there) and love the experiences they offer. There is something special to actually holding the game pieces in your hand and manipulating the game board, as opposed to everything being on a screen. I also enjoy the modeling and painting aspect of certain games.
A small list of my favorites:
Shadows of Brimstone
Middara Unintentional Malum
Gloomhaven
Folklore the Affliction

In the year of 198X, a super gamer named NESlover85 was created...

I picked up the Fallout Role-playing Game core rule book last week. Reading through it now and thinking of running a Fallout game here soon.

My players and I finally finished making characters for the Fallout Table Top Game. Character creation is alot quicker then D&D which is nice it only took maybe an hour to do each one.

The only thing I had a problem with has how the core rule books was written. It's not very organized and I was finding that I was jumping around alot in the book. Stuff that you would think was in one chapter was in another one that you wouldn't think of it being there. Also I found several typos that after some research found that it was stuff left over from the beta that doesn't apply to the game anymore. Still overall I can't wait to start our adventures here soon.

For Christmas I got Azul, Wingspan, Everdell (the collector's edition even), and Escape the Dark Castle (which has me the most excited). I'll post pictures here in a bit because all of these games look beautiful. I'm a sucker for gorgeous components and design lol.

Give me a heads-up if you're going to send a request please.

I got for Christmas the 1960's version of Life which I was ecstatic to get. Its my favorite version of Life for a few reasons.

1) The nostalgia factor as this was the version I grew up with. When I was a kid my mom managed to keep a few of her board games from her childhood and Life was one of them. So this was the version we would always play as a family. I didn't even know there were updated versions till I I was a teenager myself and was over at a friend's house and they had the 80's version of Life.

2) The board size. The board size is a bit bigger which for me means longer sessions. Luckily Life isn't a game like Monopoly which just goes on forever and ever.

3) More options. I feel that the 60's version had more options to do things in the games where as subsequential versions took alot away and made some of them defacto way to play.

But I can't wait to crack that baby open on our next game night.

I also got Clue Master Detective which is a variant of the game Clue. It's not that much different except that it has more rooms, more weapons and more suspects which in the end gives you more possibilities of the outcome.

Like Life I am looking forward to playing this one as Clue was another one of my favorites growing up.

@Tasuki did they get you a version that was legit made in the 60s? Or is it like a retro throwback kinda thing? Either way, thats cool and I'm glad you got one of those special nostalgia-inducing presents.

@Losermagnet LOL that would have been even more awesome but no they are a replica of the 60's version.

Life as I said before seemed to get an update every decade (pre-cursor to video games getting DLC lol) as compared to games like Monopoly or Clue. Yeah they had variations of Monoply for example but you could always buy the original version Life once they updated it you couldn't buy the older version.

This company has a deal with Hasbro to make Retro-edition of their board games. Ones like Clue for example use the old artwork and the pieces are made from the same material they originally were wood and metal as opposed to plastic nowadays. Life though has slightly different rules along that the updates changed/removed.

I do still have my mother's original Life which of course has seen better days and now can be properly retired and after comparing it to the 60s replica I can say it's the same thing. The one difference is that the original Life was endorsed by Art Linkletter, a radio and TV show host of various shows, and his picture was on the box as well as the different dollar value bills. The replica does not which I am guessing is because they couldn't come to an agreement with his estate for his likeness.

D&D seems really interesting to me and I would get into it but I don't have any friends to play it with.

@Mikmoomamimocki You can join an online group you don't need to actually know anyone right away to start playing. There's sites like

https://roll20.net/

That are virtual tabletops that you can join into games. They have messaged boards to meet people and discuss a schedule when everyone can get together for a session or two. They have everything from one shots to full ongoing campaigns that anyone can hop into.

My friend used it alot to play with friends of ours that were scattered around the country and for obvious reasons couldn't play D&D in person anymore like we did in high school. I looked into it too but in the end my work schedule didn't mesh with theirs. But honestly that's the best way I have found to play if you don't know people or your friends aren't into it.

You could also look into your local Comic/Game shop (usually wherever Dungeon and Dragon products are sold) and see if the have and open game day/nights where anyone can join in. I know a few stores in my area have tables set up in the back of the store and once a month have a day where anyone who is either looking for players or wants to host a game can come in and start playing.

Both are great idea to get started if you are interested.
