This week's solo spotlight is on Brass: Birmingham, a 2 - 4 player board game that tells the story of competing entrepreneurs in Birmingham during the industrial revolution, between the years of 1770-1870. Amazingly, this is the #3 ranked board game out of over 12,000 games on Board Game Geek. Yes, we just said 2 - 4 players...so how can it be a solo game? Well, we have to thank the fans for developing simply fantastic automa. There are a few we'd like to point out. The first is called Automa solo mode, and that link will takes you to the rules. Another very popular version is generally called George rules, once again you can follow the link. If you'd like to save some time and listen to how these, and other solo rules actually played out, why not just listen to Episode #56 over at the Solosaurus podcast where Brandon and Carter discuss in depth? I have no idea if the game will earn the elusive "Stomp of Approval" but they can give you a good idea if this is the kind of game you'd like to play solo.
