I frequently see questions asked about what games can be played with just a single player, and while there have been several other lists created for this purpose, I aim to make this the definitive list. Please add any games I may have missed.

The two questions I always ask when looking at games are; "What's this about?" and, "Is this solitaire only, or can I play it with others?" To answer these questions, I have listed a brief summary of each game (stolen from the game's page) and listed the number of players supported.

All comments are welcome and appreciated.

This is a quick and fun word game, which scales from one to four players with almost the same rules. Easy to carry around too, because of its size.

Haven't played it, but it looks interesting, if you like numerical problems. It would seem educational for kids as well.

Blood Bowl has always endured as a single player game for me. It's actually possible to play entire seasons solo (as many have done) due to the game's hectic-but-straightforward play style.

It really does create the impression that you're looking in on an already existing world.

The game scales from 1 to 6 players, but supposedly it is most enjoyable as a single player game.

Each player represents a European syndicate backing expeditions. You begin by attracting a famous explorer such as Columbus, Magellan, Ponce de Leon or Cortez. Then you must outfit an expedition and set off on a voyage of discovery...

Probably my most-played solo game. Although it is a great two-player game, its simple, straightfoward "programmed mission" is easy yet challenging to play. As you get better and better at killing or neutralizing the Ogre, it's very easy to handicap yourself by altering the game balance. After three decades, it is still a great, easy-to-learn solo wargame.

2007 DTP game.
This is mostly targeted to be a solitaire game. This game is a 2 hour game and as the Americans, you must clear every single Japanese unit from the island by the end of turn 12 and also prevent any sort of earlier Japanese moral victory using a unique points system. Lighter and much more playable and variable (random events tables) than the magazine-game Iwo Jima: Valor of Arms, 19 Feb. – 25 March 1945.

This has a wonderfull solitaire version. You can get the instructions from wizkidsgames.com - this is probably the best solitaire game out there. You will need atleast 1 starter and a handfull of mage knight characters to make this work. I highly recommend this game. You can get gear for it super cheap bc mage knight has sort of fallen out of favor. It doesn't mean this little gem of a game should.
