Tag - Solo Gaming
Tabletop gaming is a particularly social hobby, one that’s often about coming together as a group to share an analog experience in a digital age. Yet solo gaming is on the rise, and with good reason: it can be hard to find the time — or the right people — to meet up. Having the option to play by yourself allows players to keep their brains sharp, practice strategies, and solve compelling puzzle-like experiences at their own pace. Many of those games offer the option to play with more people too, so that hot new title can get to the table twice as often.
