Rurik: Dawn of Kiev came this past week and Paladins of the West Kingdom needs to get back to the table) and thought this would be a good theme.
And, with this coronavirus threat, I know some of you may be voluntarily or involuntarily holing yourselves up in your own castles, fending off the siege of the rapidly spreading contagion. I've been under the weather this week and spent two days working from home, went in for about half a day yesterday, and decided again today that it's best to stay home. So this little apartment is my castle.
What is a castle for the purposes of this SoloCon? Well, of course a walled city with towers would count as a true castle. But I'm going to stretch the definition to also allow structures like towers and keeps. If it's a defensive building made of stone, it counts. Or some games, like Paladins, just has a castle wall you're building.
If you don't have any games that fit the bill, feel free to continue campaigning from the last SoloCon. Or maybe you're new and want to revisit one of the older themes. That's always okay.
point for every game that features some kind of castle, keep, or tower
point if your game also has kings, queens, and/or knights
points for every game that came from your shelf of shame (ie. unplayed as a solo game) (Exception: If you have owned the game 30 days or less, score only 1 point for this category.)
point for a "shelf of shame" expansion (same 30 day exception - 1/2 point awarded)
point if this game hasn't been played for a year or more
point for every game that I also have in my collection (link)
points if the game has a win/lose condition and you win. If there is no official win condition, but you scored what you consider a personal win, take the points.
points if you stormed a castle and took it over. (Or otherwise defeated it.)
point if the castle in your game represents a real historical castle.
points if you've been to a real castle and share your story. I'd love to see pics!
Remember, there are no rules about when you have to stop playing or posting. The next SoloCon is going to be Mar 27, so feel free to post until then. Or beyond. I love seeing old SoloCons get new comments or items added.
