Okay I tried "A Quiet Year" as solitaire and wouldn't recommend unless you are using the permies cards to suggest projects. The cards are larger than standard so hard to shuffle so permies suffered by suite in the future I'll shuffle the full deck and if 2 of same number are drawn in the same season stack it on the bottom.
The large size did make me think it might help with reading if there's a "Large Type Books" option to the permies cards.
Use what you know - I set my community in a looted neighborhood in the PNW. So for abundance Food and scarcity drinkable Water, Shelter
, Metal, and Transport. Near seawater, houses were stripped of wire/ pipes, abandoned cars little more than the frame but plenty of plants and animals to eat if you know how to forage. First week a headstrong girl side tracked part of the community with setting up a mushroom
farm. Next week a question about family organization had me decide that the 60 ish people were divided up in mostly nuclear family units, some multi generational based on nuclear but of the 5 family sketches I had gay couple as well, discussion ran about wither the mushrooms were worth splitting the communitys time and resources on. Third week cast iron
sent a scavenger party to help refit the lost plumbing and wiring. Fourth greywater prompted started willow feeder construction. Fifth had siblings squabble over foraging chores and more discussion on the mushrooms. Sixth feral pigs began harassing the settlement as the mushrooms finally paid off. Seventh we started a stockade defense against the pigs, this is a massive project so should
take 6 weeks to finish each of the four sides. Eighth live stock guardian suggested a counter to fortifying against the pigs and a hunt was discussed as our scavenger party returned triumphantly ending metal scarcity. Ninth the community discovered that though the marina was smashed in the apocalypse it's boat launch crain should be fixable. Tenth the pigs multiplied making their threat much worse than anticipated and discussing fixing the crain and finishing the bathroom. Eleventh wofati
prompted a discussion about housing. Twelve a hunt to thin the pig probablem while the 1st fencing was completed. Thirteenth the crain debate rages on. Spring ends.
