Hello all. I've got a bit of a dilemea. I am looking for a enjoyable solo game that takes up a small spacial footprint. I am currently a caretaker, and the room I have to play is very small. I have obtained One Deck Dungeon and Flip City, so any other suggestions are indeed most welcomed! Thanks!

I can fit it onto a lap tray.

Maybe Space Hulk: Death Angel – The Card Game, though I personally dislike it.

Friday gets my vote, however I would like to also suggest The Bloody Inn considering your status as a caretaker and the fact that I enjoy the game and it fits your needs.

Mint Works.

Just got mine in the mail today, though I haven't had a chance to play it yet. It's very tiny, given that it comes in a mint tin. There are four different bot opponents to play against for the solo game.

My suggestions too!

Sylvion is also a great solo game but has a bigger table footprint. Nations: The Dice Game is also good and the footprint is not so much. Dungeon Roll plays very quick and has a very small footprint.

The "Ultra Tiny" edition of Tiny Epic Kingdoms is the size of a standard deck of cards and plays 1-5.

The In The Trenches series from Tiny Battles Publishing is fun, quick to set up and easy understand.

Roll Through the Ages: The Bronze Age has a very small footprint.

Any of the Oniverse games (a couple have already been mentioned) should work.

It's very light, but Oceania is another that is worth looking at.

Limes is yet another one to look at.

Trenches of Valor

a 2 sided WWI game, but explicitly allows solo play. fairly small footprint (map the size of 2 sheets of paper). not a heavy wargame, just a series of trench raids. plays in 15-20 min per scenario.

Magic Realm Light 30

a one-page implementation of Magic Realm, for solo play. Just the sheet, a pen(cil), and 2 dice (maybe rules for reference) and you have an interesting game. bonus: if you learn this, the step up to full Magic Realm is considerably easier.

That's true. Have to get creative with overlapping cards. Worth it!
