Why You Should Play Tabletop Games Alone

Tabletop gaming is very much a communal activity, to play with friends and family as a group. So it sounds a little weird to play them alone. But, it can actually be really good for you.

Learn to Play

If it is a game you have the intention of playing with others, it’s good to play alone to get a handle of the mechanics in order to better teach it. It is a lot easier tot each a game when you already know how to play.

Develop Strategies

If the game is super about strategy and has multiple methodologies behind playing, playing solo is a good way to figure out what works best for you and the mechanics. Strategy can take years to master, so if you don’t have a regular group to play with, solo gaming can help speed up that process.

Test New Games

Sometimes there is a new game that looks super interesting, but you’re not sure if it will be a hit or not. Playing alone can help you figure out if the game is enjoyable for you and others you play with.
