Subject asks it all. I'm thinking of getting this game, but would prefer something that plays well solo.

I enjoy it as a solo game, but there is a bit of set up involved. Now that there is an iPad app, though, my physical copy has not been getting a lot of play time...

As a solo game I prefer the iOS implementation. The scoring is automated and there is a solo challenge mode.

Personally I like it solo. It actually has two different solo modes - Lone Architect, and against "Dale" a robot. Slight differences, but same basic feel. Good way to learn the rules. Interesting choices, and "Dale" is actually kinda difficult to beat.

Also the expansion is easily added, even if playing only solo - if that's a consideration.

The one with "Dale" is fun. You can find interesting way to interact with the bot.

The one without the bot is a nice way to learn how to play the game.

I'm strictly a solo gamer and I can say this is definitely a great solo game. There is enough game here to make this a challenging and entertaining solo game every time it gets to the table. The design of Suburbia is top notch. I agonize over every decision I make in this game and I love the game for making me care. I don't think I'll ever get rid of it. I was going to buy this game a year ago and hesitated because I could not find enough answers to the "does it play well solo" question. It's a fantastic game. Will I get bored after 50 plays? I really don't think I will but I do know I will never regret buying it.
