Since remote gaming has now become a significant part of how we play board games, we have added a short cut to this forum in the menu on the left.
Having recently welcomed a second child into our family, I was quite ready to give up a few months of gaming time and I prepared myself by investigating a few solo games to tide me through the lean times. The trouble with the solo titles I usually favour - Arkham Horror and Return of the Heroes is that while fun, both involve a pretty hefty set-up time and indeed in the case of Arkham Horror a pretty hefty play time. I knew I was going to need something I could whip out quickly, play and pack away again when a rare quiet sixty minutes ensued. Looking round it seemed that there was an obvious contender for this slot: the solo Vietnam-era air combat game Phantom Leader from Dan Verssen Games. Dan was kind enough to send me a copy to review, and I can happily report that it’s just about managed to squeeze into my hectic post-infant lifestyle.
