In March 2020, as the entire world decided to stay home, we presented the Solo Games Bundle. For self-isolating gamers this new bargain-priced collection presented solitaire roleplaying, board, and miniatures games that gave lots of new ways to play with yourself. All these print-and-play .PDF rules sets are designed for just one player, and several also work fine for two or more gamers confined in the same space. Our customers enlivened their quarantine with dungeon crawls, skirmishes in post-apocalyptic and science-fictional landscapes, and several large SoloQuest pick-a-path gamebooks.
There were six titles in our Starter Collection (retail value $41.50) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks, including the solo dungeon crawl Exiles of the Wicked Maze (plus its expansions Beyond the Wicked Maze: Hazards & Trickery and Wretched Encounters); the skirmish miniatures games Five Klicks From the Zone and Five Men at Kursk from Nordic Weasel Games; the Old West solo Bad Day at Buena Roca (based on Kenzer and Company’s Aces & Eights, though you don’t need that game to play); and the board game of post-apocalyptic allergies, Mutant Megabloom. And we included a free game too, one of the best solitaire RPGs ever — Shawn Tomkin’s Ironsworn.
Those who paid more than the threshold (average) price also got our entire Bonus Collection with six more titles worth an additional $62, including two full-length SoloQuest adventures from Kenzer, Brothers by Blood and Fallen From Grace; two of Nordic Weasel’s most popular miniatures games, Five Leagues From the Borderlands and Five Parsecs From Home; and another sprawling dungeon crawl in the Old School style from Kabuki Kaiser, Ruins of the Undercity. After launch we added the new 2020 edition of Tony Dowler’s game/toy/toolkit megadungeon generator, How to Host a Dungeon 2E and its accompanying Monster Cards.
Ten percent of each payment (after gateway fees) went to this offer’s designated charity, Heart to Heart International. Heart to Heart improves health access and administers crisis relief worldwide.
