This week's solo spotlight is on Charterstone. Before I say anything else, you should check out Episode #57 at the Solosaurus podcast where Brandon and Carter dissect it...and they also talk about how to enter the Castle Itter board game giveaway!
Now, Charterstone, the Stonemaier game from "way back" in 2017, is making a bit of a resurgence. Jamey Stegmaier felt it didn't get an opportunity to reach its full potential, so is kicking it around again. We put our ear to the ground and by distilling comments we've heard back from players, the legacy game does grow on you the more it's played, but early game mistakes can be devastating. Components are amazing and game quality fantastic, but some complain there isn't much to do once the village has been built. So, it's a bit of a toss-up among players, but with our sale going on you can safely check it out for yourself!

DescriptionIn Charterstone, a competitive legacy game, you construct buildings and populate a shared village. Building stickers are permanently added to the game board and become action spaces for any player to use. Thus, you start off with simple choices and few workers, but soon you have a bustling village with dozens of possible actions. The prosperous Kingdom of Greengully, ruled for centuries by the Forever King, has issued a decree to its citizens to colonize the vast lands beyond its borders. In an effort to start a new village, the Forever King has selected six citizens for the task, each of whom has a unique set of skills they use to build their charter. Your journey through Charterstone’s many secrets will last twelve games, but it doesn’t end there. Your completed village will be a one-of-a-kind worker-placement game with plenty of variability. Charterstone features the following: streamlined starting rulebook: learn as you play and add rules as you unlock content engine-building elements within each game and over the course of the campaign a branching storyline where short-term decisions have a long-term impact a secret component found in only one other board game 75+ “crates” to unlock: 36 metal coins, 350+ unique cards, and 230+ wooden tokens (exactly 12 of each resource: wood, coal, grain, brick, iron, and pumpkin)
