In conjunction with Beyond Solitaire, the Armchair Dragoons are conducting a small survey on people's solo wargaming preferences.
This includes not only purpose-designed solo games, but any kind of wargames that you play solitaire.

The survey only takes a few minutes, we do recommend that you look up your favorite games on BGG ahead of time, since we're asking you to paste the URLs into the survey to help us keep the data consistent.

Thanks!

Chris High passed the request on to my Cincinnati group and at least a few of us have completed the survey!

Diving a little deeper into the solo/solitaire wargaming survey, with a look at favorites based on how long gamers have been playing

Our article:  https://www.armchairdragoons.com/articles/research/soloresults2023/


So which games on the survey do you think are too high?  Too low? 

Which ones do you think are most affected by recency bias?

Which ones do you think are most affected by nostalgia?


Where did your favorites finish?
