Last year, we dedicated SGAM to the memory of the late Zach Best and his contributions to solo gaming through his publishing company, Conjecture Games. While we hope you’ll remember Zack again this year and try out UNE or CRGE in your solo game, for 2018 we opened suggestions to the Lone Wolf Roleplaying community and +Todd Zircher compiled the suggestions into a survey for voting on a group project and selected challenges for the month.
The results are in, and the theme for SGAM 2018 is Story Seeds:
