Last Friday was my chance to try playing Gloomhaven by myself. In this live play video I play through the Saw class solo scenario, Aftermath.

Some thoughts on the Sawbones solo scenario for Gloomhaven.
One of the things that I thought was really cool about the Mindthief Solo scenario for Gloomhaven that I talked about the last couple of weeks, was the fact that the second room didn’t have any bad guys in it. It was basically just a puzzle to be solved. Well the Sawbones solo scenario is that but on an even bigger scale. The entire scenario is just one big puzzle.
There is not a single monster to fight in Aftermath. You don’t even need the monster deck. I think it’s also possible for this scenario to be 100% non-random. Personally, I did have draw a few cards to try to destroy some obstacles, but if I had more jump abilities or the right items I wouldn’t have had to do even those draws.
I do think you would need at least one, if not more, short rests, so there’s another small random factor, but overall this scenario is all about building your hand and using it well.
I found this scenario a ton of fun to play through. It did feel odd recording this with just me in the room. I started off well, talking about what cards I had and which ones I was playing every round, but as the scenario went on and got more tense I tended to forget. This tension is also why I forgot to take any pictures once I got started. Sorry about that.
Overall I’m digging these solo scenarios. At some point in the future we are going to have to let Tori and/or Kat try out their solo quests.
