What I play most.
I try to make up variants, and to try to 'break' them.

I put up Lowenhertz because the game it is loosely based on is not in the db.

The game i've heard called "dots," but I suppose it has other names. You just draw a square grid of dots, and alternate drawing veritical or horizontal lines between them. If someone draws a line that makes a box, they draw their initial in the box, and then may take another turn (possibly leading to completing many boxes).

When all lines have been drawn the player with the most boxes wins.

Lowenhertz seemed fairly much like that, with more options and regulations about how the lines get drawn

Sid Sackson has a number of pen and pencil games. Also try his book A Gamut of Games. A few good ones in there.

Now "Mind Sharpening Logic Games". 39 games to be played by paper & pencil.
Not so much to be played solitaire, anyway...

I've played a lot of Sprouts on the back of placemats while waiting for my food to arrive... usually with an opponent, but I suppose that's optional.

You can play this solitaire by counting how many arrows you use, which corresponds to your time, and trying to get the lowest time possible.
