Utopia Engine uses 2 d6's but also requires paper, pencil and eraser. Also probably good to have a printout of the rules.

I hope that "Nautilion" will be a good representative from Oniverse (will be released in next few weeks).

The Cards of Cthulhu is the first solo dice game I picked up. I second the suggestion to join the 1PG. Lots of solo variants available. Another would be Dungeons & Dragons Dice Masters: Battle for Faerûn but there is a lot of outlay.

Here's a few of my recommendations:

OctoDice - Excellent game, and plays very quickly. The quality of the dice is a little iffy, however.

Roll Through the Ages: The Bronze Age - The classic "civ Yahtzee". Great game for 1 - 4 players.

Elder Sign - Great if you want a longer adventure game with a big focus on resource management. A bit on the easy side depending on what ancient one you're taking on, and what expansions you're using.

Tiny Epic Galaxies - I like to call it Roll Through the Ages: The Space Age. Very good space-themed civ game, with 5 different virtual opponents to challenge.

Dungeon Roll - Nice quick little dungeon crawler. I would recommend getting some of the add-on hero packs for more variety.

Firefly: Shiny Dice - Like a slightly heavier, deeper version of Dungeon Roll, although it doesn't have different playable characters like Dungeon Roll's hero cards.

Utopia Engine - You can print and play this one RIGHT NOW if you want. Requires only two printed pages (black ink only), a pencil and eraser, and a pair of 6-sided dice. Either print the rulebook, or just read off your screen. Excellent game. Search for the parts of the Utopia Engine, and activate and reconnect them to stave off the impending end of the world.

30 Rails - Another print-and-play. This one is so simple that you can get away with not even printing anything if you've got some graph paper laying around. Nice little spatial puzzle that is a lot trickier than it looks.

FUSE is one I've really enjoyed playing solo. Since it uses a timer there's a lot of tension even in a one player game.

I actually like it better than "real" Pandemic. There's an interesting push-your-luck element. Do you reroll and risk increasing the infection rate, or try to make the best of what you have?
