What's everyone's favorite solo missions to play? Been playing Wanda's Revenge and Lost, but am curious to hear other's favorites for solo play.

The most fun I've had playing solo has been Y-Zone (not necessary, but recommended for the xp and weapons) followed by Under Siege.

I've not played solo a huge amount, however when I next do I plan to play City Blocks, because I like my Zombicide to be brutal.

I like playing both but I think once I know that there's a follow-up on YZone I'd gear up and then Under Siege became too easy.

(here's my blog entry on it in case you are interested:

I like S09 Might makes Right, although I never manage to win it I still like playing it.
when I play solo, I have to set up all 6 survivors, set up the board, set up the table etc. With this small map it and limit on survivors it is a lot easier for me to set up.

I would suggest using the normal set up for scenarios (six survivors) as most missions were designed for six survivors. I divide them in to two groups of three so that one group must all take their actions before the other (same as a two player game). This way you can play any of the missions without the big disadvantage of being down two survivors.

Not a mission suggestion, but thought I'd share how I play solo - It helps me judge the difficulty of missions on the same level as when I'm playing with others too.

I mostly play two player but we do something similar with regards to fixing the order but take it even further. We fix the survivor order before we start by writing the names down in a list then moving the first player token down the list. This stimulates what would happen in a six player game and could easily be done for solo as well. I find when you get to choose activation order (even with the two groups of three suggestion) it's easier so prefer to add in the extra layer of difficulty.

I use the Zombicide app and leverage the action buttons to maintain turn order throughout the game. I couldn't imagine playing solo without the app.

If it counts as a scenario, the campaign. I love campaigns.
