Since 31st March I have been running the 1 Player Guild Gaming Awards where we have been nominating and voting on what we feel are the best solitaire games, solitaire variants and expansions released in 2017.

There were five categories relating to solitaire gaming as well as three Hall of Fame categories.

Best Solitaire Variant of 2017


This is a multiplayer game that has had an unofficial solitaire variant created for it. The variant must have been posted onto boardgamegeek during the year in question, the publication date of the game is irrelevant

This Geeklist shows the five variants that made the final vote. Voting will last until April 30th.

For a full list of all nominated games for this category please look here.

Finally, congratulations to all those nominated. I hope these awards go someway to show how much we appreciate the hard work and time that goes into designing, producing and supplying these games we enjoy so much.

Category Winner!

The "Garth" Automa for Great Western Trail puts one of the best games of recent past firmly on solo footing and turns it into a must have for any self-respecting soloist.

A simple to operate solo variant for this great, soothing little card game. My only variant design of last year.

I finalised and uploaded the 'automa' AI 'SMTHCoBot' last year, as a challenging opponent for Snowdonia, rather than the 'beat your own score' of the original included solo variant.

It has had 281 downloads so far. A nomination would be great!

Looking ahead, I am planning to test out the bot with all of the scenarios/expansions.....

In an effort to add some competition to this category is like to add Trajan Optimus. Card driven variant using simple rules and only 18 cards.

My first attempt at making a solitaire bot for a boardgame. I'm quite happy with the result and I find that it makes Democracy under Siege a great solo experience.
