When I first played Harvest Dice, I immediately fell in love with the simple mechanics, delightful theme, and the spacial puzzle elements. My one and only criticism is that I couldn’t play it solo, something I look for explicitly when choosing a roll-and-write game. I decided to tinker with the game and eventually came up with a solo variant that is faithful to the original game while also presenting a challenge to the solo gamer.

The solo variant rules are available to download for free on Board Game Geek. You can also follow along with the conversation in the Harvest Dice BGG Forums.

Huge thanks to Danny Devine for designing an amazing game and for supporting me during the development of this variant. I also want to thank Josh and Grey Fox Games for their support and the honor of including my contribution in future printings of the rulebook.
