I primarily play with one other gaming partner and therefore have gravitated towards two-player games: they just hit the table more! That's what draws me into solo gaming, as you will note by my wishlist. I highly value playing my games over and over and getting to know them deeply.
I have made my wishlist because I think these games will fall into the above statement. I would prefer to stick to the wishlist if at all possible
In terms of Canadian retailers I usually go with:http://www.supernovagames.cahttp://www.greatboardgames.ca
I also have ordered from both GMT and VPG directly - shipping usually costs around $20-25
