Other than Cactus Throne: The Mexican War of 1862-1867, are there any other wargames that simulate this event? (Any that are solo-able?)

Thanks!
Mark

Vae Victis published Camerone which is the French version of The Alamo which took place then and there.

This should be fine for solo play as it's basically a "how long can the defenders survive" game.

I've long felt the French invasion would make a great CDG -- the initial British and Spanish involvement (and withdrawal), some amazing random events, the ACW looming as a factor as important as the Napoleon track is in 'Amateurs to Arms,' some pretty exotic units in both OOBs, asymmetic conflict, partisan warfare (and suppression), and you could throw in some UKC-style what-ifs like Santa Anna reappearing or U.S. invasion.
