    Yggdrasil is giving Elder Sign a serious run for its money in the field of board games I most like to play solo. It plays beautifully on iPad, and looks nearly as good as it plays. Most of all, I enjoy Ygdrassil because it's a game that gives me a good measure of control over my fate, and the fate of the world by extension.

    Due to the steep learning curve, Yggdrasil will not be to everyone's taste and does require a lot of patience. It does reward though with one of the better hard-to-master thinking-man's board games out there. Although for the impatient amongst you, it will punish.
