Dear Gamegeeks,

I am seeking for recommends for good, enajoyable solo war- or strategy games which have Napoleon and/or the Vietnam War as topic and theme.

Any suggestions ?

The games necessarily don not have to be traditional solitaire - they can be also more gamer games which could be played solo.

Thanx in advance kiss

Ward! Couldn't care less for Vietnam War, but Napoleonic warfare is one of my favorites in history. A nice solo game about that would be awesome.

Fire in the Lake would be a good choice for a Vietnam War boardgame. It can be played solo via the included bot flowcharts.

It is out of print currently so finding will be difficult unless you buy a used copy on the geekmarket for example.

Fields of Fire covers WW2, Korea, and Vietnam. Great game, not easy to get into.

If PnP is not a problem for you, you may take a look at Berserker Games.

Maybe you find something of your liking.

+1 to Fire in the Lake. I haven't played it yet, but I've heard good things. You simply can't go wrong with a GMT game, either.

Another you may want to check out is Vietnam Solitaire Special Edition. I've enjoyed David Kershaw's The Confederate Rebellion. They're quick and fun systems to play, and pretty cheap.

Phantom Leader Deluxe is Vietnam solitaire focused on the aerial campaign. Good narrative with a touch of RPG to it.

I recently ordered A Week In Hell: The Battle of Hue.
It's a solitaire based on the Marines trying to clear out the city of Hue.
It hasn't arrived from France yet, but it looks gorgeous.

Fire in the Lake is quite a lot to think about solo.
I've played it twice. It takes awhile to play, but it is rewarding.

Thanx so much to all of you for great recommends.

Will check definitely "Fire in the Lake" out - but I am a little bit scared about the massive amount of rules. Hm, let`s see...
