BGG is full of geeklists to highlight which games are best for 7, 9, 2, 5 or even 1 player. But what about 0 players?
Several of the following games are very good for 2, 4 or other numbers of players, but they have another intriguing characteristic: they are also great when you look for games for 0 players.
Please add. According to reviewers, there should be several titles here around that, lacking real choices for players, even play by themselves.

This beautiful steel and wood game is not only fun, but also a perfect game to be exhibited under a glass in your living room.

Deluxe edition of this masterpiece by Nexus Editrice. Limited edition of 2.000 numbered copies, reaching crazy prices just after the release. Better kept sealed to save its collectible value.

The setting allows for very realistic 0 players historical scenarios. Mark an airport on the gaming field - official mats have them painted, as in the picture. Put a squadron of planes on the airport, grounded. As it often happened, it rains heavily. The squadron is not ordered to fly, the enemy does not show up. In a rainy week you can even play a whole 0 players campaign of such scenarios.
For better realism, you can freely download 1/144 scale 3D hangars here to print and assemble:

No player needed, just a monkey to roll the dice and move the chips.

And as far as shameless rip-offs are concerned, I'd say that Heroquest 27th Anniversary Edition would also deserve 0 players.
In any case, it seems that buyers in the three crowfunding campaigns (two of which aborted), acquiring it with no clue about game mechanics or similarities with the boriginal, took it more as a box of miniatures than as a game.
