Surprised not to see a thread on this unless my searching skills have let me down again. Monster Train is a deck builder which appears to crib heavily from Slay the Spire, but I'm actually finding much more enjoyable! At first glance it appears a lot more complex, with a more MtG approach of summoning many monsters, buffing them, as well as spells, all over 3 floors. But after just a couple of runs it all fits together really smoothly. Any StS veterans will know the score- pick a class and choose a direction from the first few cards, then keep your deck as lean and focused as you can because the final boss will escalate things. The differences are all positives to me: 5 classes, one your main and one support, each with 2 different basic cards and champions, allow for 160 different starting setups and playthroughs before the different upgrade paths and artifacts are taken into account. Very generous deck customisation from the off- it's not heal or upgrade, it's heal and upgrade and discard 2 and an event. But this doesn't mean it's easier, just more interesting. Also it's free on Gamepass, so there's no excuse to skip it.
I'm having a real shit time of life at the moment, and part of that is coming to the realisation i don't have any friends. My current bout of depression has left me with very little enthusiasm / enjoyment for anything. Anyway i was wondering if anyone has anything they recommend i can actually try and fill my time playing? I see on things on boardgamegeeks and a few things people have posted in other threads that there are a lot of what look like trading card games & miniature / board games you can play on your own? I just want something i can spend sometime on even if its something i leave on my dining room table and then come back to when i feel like it again, things like this say "one player" https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/230244/black-angel As always any and all help is appreciated!
