One of the main reasons tabletop games are so loved is their replayability. You can play a hundred matches of Rising Sun without ever being in the same situation, and the same can be said for most other games. But not all games. Today, we’ll delve a little into one-off games, exploring what they are, why they are so amazing, and why you should play them despite any initial reservations.
What are one-off games?
One-off games are quite easy to define, actually. They are games that can only be played once, or a set number of times before being “completed”, as they provide no new experience and nothing more to explore after that. Some one-off games include mystery games, such as the Sherlock Holmes: Consulting Detective series, where you try and resolve cases. Once you’ve solved them all, it would be useless to play again, as you’d know the solution from the start. Some other examples of one-off games are room-escape and legacy games.
