Which solo games have the best replayability? I would prefer something that comes with creatures and that is doesnt have more than 2 expansions (because.. Well.. Then I gotta collect them all, thats how I am and im afraid it could get pretty expensive).

Also replayability must be good Even if it dorsnt have much expansions

Awesome game, but it does have more than 2 expansions now.


My favs:
Mice and Mystics is a great co-op that only has 2 expansions (so far).
Onirim (second edition) has 7 expansions (modules) included, and only 2 separate ones which were realeased as promos. The included expansions and combinations thereof, give it lots of replayability.

(By the way, Mice and Mystics has creatures, but Onirim is abstract and card-based.)

The only way that Elder Sign only has two expansions is if expansion 1 is Arkham Horror Big Box and expansion 2 is Eldritch Horror Big Box

I'm not sure what "comes with creatures" mean? Miniatures?
Or are cards okay too?

Ghost stories has only 2 expansions total (and isn't likely to have anymore) and the second one is for non-solo only.


Xcom can be fun solo and the only expansion isn't even out yet. But it's only decent solo if you can play on a tv (looking at phone is annoying)


Mage Knight as suggested above is probably one of the best solo games of all times.

Heroes Wanted is great for solo. It has multiple expansions but you really don't need them all or even any.

Also you can check the D&D games like
Temple of Elemental Evil Board Game

Mage Knight Board Game is the obvious pick.

Sure, in theory there are THREE expansions. But one of them is just a small character expansion. And really only the first expansion "Lost Legion" is one that every Mage Knight lover should get. And finally, there is PLENTY of replayability in the core box alone. I would eventually recommend getting Lost Legions, because it is awesome, but it absolutely is not needed in any way whatsoever. The base game is pretty close to perfection by itself.

I got the game yesterday and while it's complex and you'll need some time to really understand all the rules, it's not that bad. It's a lot to learn at first, took me 2 hours to read both rulebooks, but I feel quite confident that I don't have to look up much next time I play. It really helps watching a playthrough video of the game before trying to play it tho. So, yeah, it's very complex and can be a bit overwhelming at first but it's not that hard to learn imo. :)

The rules are very intimidating, but in the end, the game is not overly hard to play or anything. The little "cheat sheet" cards for the various places help keeping the look-ups low.

There are a few details you have to get down, but after a few plays it should be pretty easy.

And yeah, I would also watch a video playthrough before getting down to reading the rules, that should help a lot.

The 7th continent is an incredible solo game. It is a Kickstarter an was Fundes in 2015. I played it at Essen this year. It totally blew off my mind!
At the moment It is Not at retail but may be in the near future!?
It comes with over 800 cards and nice little miniatures!

I just ordered Space Hulk: Death Angel – The Card Game as well, its 15$ with shipping and it has stellar reviews.
Almost everyone say that there is no need for anything other than the base game, and if you want an expansion they are cheap as hell.
