These are all on my shelf already and I'm hoping to play them solo to either just experience them solo or in some cases use the solo experience as a way to learn how the game plays. I have no plans for the number of times I will play each, but if I'm enjoying it I wouldn't be surprised to play a game several times.

If you're reading this, please feel free to comment on which I should try next.

I have played this before multiplayer. I would like to try a game or 3 to get a better handle on seeing strategies / card combos.

Did you know there are solo rules for BSG?

I'd like to try it to learn the game mechanics / rules so that I can teach it to my group without too much trouble.

I've played it solo before and would like to try it again with my kids. It'll be more of a semi-solo.

I've played and I think lost the first scenario. This should be one of the early ones I dust off as I enjoyed it quite a bit when I played it.

When Ogreocket came out, it looked interesting enough to grab for a few bucks. And there it sits in it's little packaging. Hoping to learn the game with a solo round or two, then teach my wife.

Similar to on the brink, I recently added this one and the puzzle-y aspect really appeals to me as a solo game.

I am so torn on this one. I'd love to solo it with the included Automa deck. The problem is, my primary gaming partner is my wife, and I have won both games of this that we have played. If I go hone my strategies playing solo it'll make her not want to play again. May have to hold off until she beats me twice.
