Reflections on 2017

2017 in retrospect and changes planned for 2018.

This is being done slightly earlier than bloggers traditionally do, simply to give some new content to anyone on Christmas Day, who wants some hobby browsing time, but is finding the internet pretty quiet over the holiday period. So it is a lengthy post, but for good reason ...... coffee time!

Lock 'n Load SOLO module

A look at the Lock ‘n Load Tactical Solo system

Lock ‘n Load recently launched their Solo platform for their tactical WWII - Modern series, in which an AI system takes on the role of the ‘other player’, giving the solitaire player a chance to apply their wit against an unseen gaming partner, but how well does this inanimate guest behave at the table?

I found myself travelling something of a learning curve to get comfortable with the system, as I suppose somewhat ironically, I had to first learn how not to be a good old fashioned solitaire player and so I thought it a worthwhile post to share that journey, as I don’t think this is a system that you can fully appreciate until you have a few games under your belt.

The rest of this post will hopefully help those sitting on the fence about buying or those who have bought and are just looking for another perspective on play.
