Michael Gorely has made a good variant for a solitare match. Works with the basic game too.

This game has a solitaire variant right in the rules but it still needs a little tinkering to make it workable.

There is an extremely simple way to make this multiplayer on the geek. I believe you simply pay one gold at the end of your turn or lose.

Vanished Planet has a built-in solitaire variant. It is rediculously hard to win that way though.

This is a puzzle-like game even for two players. But the puzzle-like qualities are even more enhanced in the solitaire version. I would not call this a great game for one, but it is a nice diversion occasionally.

17. Board Game: Puerto Rico [Average Rating:8.06 Overall Rank:15]

As if Puerto Rico doesn't have enough going for it, I find it to be extremely enjoyable when played solitaire. You can play any number of boards you like, too. Just take each turn as if you're looking out for that "player's" best interests.

First thing you'll notice is that every game is razor close because there's no clueless player there to screw it up. Well, there might be, but since it would be you, it won't be noticed!

The second thing you'll find is that this is an excellent way to sharpen your skills at the game. You can try any oddball strategy you've never had the nerve to try against live opponents. You can try combinations of buildings you've never tried before. Or you can just play the game "straight," practicing how you would play or react in each situation that comes up. It's surprisingly engrossing as a solitaire exercise.
