I only have money for 1 of them :/

Call to Adventure (love theme/concern about difficult too easy)
Proving Grounds (love theme/concern luck factor)
Unbroken (like hard games/concern luck factor)
Roll player (concern with "MUST by expansion Monsters too play better solo)

- I like games that win depends not only on luck but more on strategy/tactic.
(contrary to my experience with gears of war Boardgame that his whole strategy went downhill because of bad dice rolls)
- game that is not too easy(100% win rating), to get your replayability a little higher. I will play only solo

I'm sorry if I'm being too subjective
thanks!

I would vote Unbroken but finding it may be difficult.

DON'T pre-order from the Golden Bell site.

Call to Adventure
Even though Call to Adventure has a big luck component, I've yet to lose a game. If you're any good with calculating odds, there will be little need to take any big risks. I've posted some rules to make the adversary a bit less stupid more challenging: Modified solo-rules

All controversy aside, isn't Unbroken extremely luck-driven?
I'm not sure it fits OP's requirements?

Fwiw, I’ve played Unbroken, and it doesn't really meet the criteria of low luck, high strategy IMO.

Roll Player is by far the best of the bunch, but I think it's a bit more luck than you're looking for.

I would agree that Roll Player fits best, but it’s still not a perfect match for what you’re looking for. I at least find that there are plenty of ways to mitigate/change your dice rolls to something that you need. It’s very puzzly.

I've played all of those, and I would recommend looking at Roll Player first and Proving Grounds second. Watch some videos and see if they really fit your need.

I like Call to Adventure a lot, but it's more for the story creation that goes on in my head than it is for the gameplay, per se. Also rolling the runes is satisfying.

I haven't made up my mind about Unbroken yet, but I also haven't gotten it back to the table in a hurry, either.

IMO it’s not needed. It adds to the game and I enjoy what it adds but I like the game just fine without it. I would recommend the base game. And if you really like it and want more out of it, then get the expansion.

I have played all of the games you listed and Roll Player is the winner by far for me. Good choice.

The expansion doesn't add any winconditions. It's still about getting as high a score as possible.

In my opinion you should get the base game first. It's a good game on its own.

Be sure to check out the Roll Player League by Zoinks which lets you compare your scores to others using the same set-up.

Maybe it’s me but I find that I get tired of solo games that are win/lose. I much prefer games where I have a score to gauge my performance.

Out of those I only know Roll Player, it's great without the expansion, a medium/light dice puzzle.
