Welcome to Beyond Solitaire!
Beyond Solitaire is a media outlet dedicated to board games and the roles they play in history, culture, and education. I also create game tutorials and edit rulebooks to help make games more accessible for more people. See my Work With Me page if you want to commission work from me.
I am first and foremost a solo gamer, and my YouTube channel is the place to find reviews, playthroughs, and video podcasts.
My podcast is my pride and joy, and it airs both on YouTube and as a podcast feed. This is where my guests and I explore challenging issues related to board gaming. Episodes generally focus on topics related to how games function as historical commentary, how they work as educational tools, and what today's games say about our own culture(s).
This site has become a space for me to write about my own research related to board games. Check the Blog for my current projects, and the Public History tab for links to my favorite historical gaming work.
My name is Liz Davidson, and I play solo board games. A lot of solo board games...
If you appreciate my work, I would very much appreciate your support on Patreon or Ko-fi.
