Ugly Gryphon Inn

Button Shy Games has launched a Kickstarter campaign for the second in their Simply Solo line of games, Ugly Gryphon Inn, which is designed by Scott Almes, best known for his Tiny Epic series of games.  Ugly Gryphon Inn is a solo only game, for players aged 8 and up.  It plays in about 20 minutes.

In Ugly Gryphon Inn, the player represents the innkeeper who is trying to make sure that all of their patrons get enough sleep.  Every round you will check to see that the inn’s guests are sleeping soundly as many of the bar’s patrons are likely to disturb those trying to sleep.  According to the Kickstarter page, “booking your guests in the right order is key to success.”  The player wins if they have managed to keep 7 or more visitors in their inn.

This fully-funded campaign has less than a week to go at the time of this writing.  There are several pledge levels available including those that include expansions.  The game is expected to deliver in May 2021.  For more information, check out the Kickstarter page here.
