We hope everyone is staying safe and following the Government guidelines. While the Coiledspring team are working from home, we will be publishing blogs recommending a whole variety of games that are a great way to pass the time. To kick things off, as we know that many of you may be isolating by yourselves, here are 5 great games to enjoy solo!
Great solo or co-operative, your goal is to stop Bandido escaping from prison. Draft cards to block tunnels, but some cards may create more exits for the prisoner. Will you be able to join forces and cards to stop him?
New from Gamewright, Metro X is the rail and write game. Flip a card, choose a subway line, and cross off the given number of stops on your map. Earn bonuses for making transfers but lose points for incomplete tracks. The solo variant sees you circling the gold diamond upon completing a route. If you score 50+ you’re a genius!
It’s visual dexterity, cubed! The solo experience of Q-Bitz from MindWare. Match the patterns on the pattern cards with the cubes in your tray. Play over three rounds or add a timer to see how fast you can recreate the pattern! The pack contains 20 pattern cards and comes in a travel friendly tin.
It’s tabletop tetris! In another smash hit from Wolfgang Warsch, place falling blocks onto your grid to score the most points. You can use energy points to rotate the blocks. If you don’t want a piece you can use a bomb to blow it up, but it will cost you!
Moving away from board games, a great way to have some downtime solo is to complete a jigsaw. All of our jigsaw range is manufactured to Schmidt’s Premium 6 Star Quality, meaning that the snug, varied pieces once put together can be lifted up vertically without the need of any puzzle conserver. If you like 500 piece puzzles and animals, check out Cat Selfie or Dog Selfie! Or if you’d like a bigger challenge, try the Collage of Owls 1000pc puzzle.
Once again, we hope that everyone is staying safe, staying home and following the Government issued guidelines to reduce the risk of spread and infection.
