Hey all,

I'm looking for some new games to look into getting, but specifically ones that can be played one player as well. Given that I have three young'ens, my time to get together with friends and game is limited; however, it's much easier for me to sit down and bang out a game by myself as time allows, or to leave one set up and play progressively throughout the day.

I've got the LoTR card game and Legendary, but was wondering if there were any more good ones you guys could recommend.

Thanks!

Ghost Stories if you like a good challenge.

Eldritch Horror and Arkham Horror both play well solo as long as you play a couple investigators.

Space Hulk: Death Angel – The Card Game is another good but challenging one.

LOTR the card game is my favorite solo game, but you already have that.

Mage Knight Board Game is a fantastic solo game. Whether you'll ever get it played with other people is another story, but it is more than worth it for the solo game itself.

Absolutely has to be thumbsup Robinson Crusoe thumbsup, its smashingly fantastic at every player count (1 - 4). Even playing solo, it is richly thematic and tense.

Hi,

many good suggestions already. You should also take a look at the 1 Player guild. Some nice geeklists are linked there and the forum is also very helpful for solo players.
