Nemo's War: 2nd Edition by The Secret Cabal Gaming Podcast

Thematically this game is freakin' awesome...I've played this game four and a half times now, [and it] is quickly becoming, I believe, one of my favorite games of all time...It's just awesome in every single way. ... Those motives are probably the most genius way of changing a gameplay kind of style that I've ever seen in any board game ever.

Alone Beneath the Sea by Space-Biff

For many solo gamers, Nemo’s War is one of the finest options out there. It’s easily the prettiest thing Victory Point Games has ever offered, if that matters to you. From the feel of the draw bags and the weightiness of the ship tokens to the crispness of the board’s visual design, there’s very little to complain about. ... Far more importantly, this is one of those rare dice games that never fails to excite, weaving a narrative that’s both gripping and ever so slightly somber, the tale of a man raging against the callous march of industrial progress. ... Its sensibilities are roguelike in nature — it’s tough, capricious, likely to end in failure, and each attempt presents new challenges, ships, and likelihoods of disaster. It isn’t a game you’ll win often, and its “triumph” score may elude you for many dozens of plays.

And, shipmate, is it fantastic. It’s rare enough for a solo game to receive such a loving treatment. Snap it up.
