This is an attempt to gather in one place a list of games (mainly war games) that were included in magazines, that are able to be played by a solo player.

As I have limited knowledge about such games, this list requires input from the community to make it useful.

The primary goal of this list is to have a place to go to quickly identify those magazines that are being sold (here or elsewhere) that may be of interest particularly to the solo community.

While I am certain to have overlooked some, on the other hand, my net may have been too broad: I've included both games that were listed as 1+ players, as well as games that the "community" indicated were 1+ players. I don't know exactly how well these games are solo-able.

I am also well aware that games can be played both sides, but this is not the intent here.
