Ten things Bob and I like about Solo Wargaming

Read this interesting 2011 blog post by Bob the Solowargamer and it’s one I happily agree with (and so does my usual opponent):


This way of gaming and choice of opponent very much suits:

  • the odd times I have available for gaming,
  • my need for very very simple rules,
  • my strange choices of figure scale (pound store 42mm and 32-36mm anyone?)
  • my odd vintage figure selection
  • my Imagi-Nations or odd choice of periods.

Seems overall like a good match. My usual opponent agrees.

Am I really Solo though? Thanks to blogging, readers’ comments and emails as well as forums such as the Peter Laing collectors community on Google+, I have the benefits of the company of other gamers without the tiresome company of button counters and rules lawyers.

Happy Gaming!

B.P.S. One day I might get around to joining the Solo Wargamers Association and their excellent journal Lone Warrior if I can work out how. They have some good sample articles on their website.
