Lately I have played some solo PnP games, which I have enjoyed a lot. Especially games like Deep Space D-6 and 30 Rails were enjoyable.
Can you recommend games like these?

* Free solo PnP
* I prefer dices over cards (but card games will be okay as well)
* Playtime around 30-45 minutes
* Simple, but not to light (weight around 1.8-2.5)

If I may, I'd like to recommend my own creations:

Zombie Slayer

Zombie Slayer is a solitaire dungeon crawl (sort of; a "town crawl" rather) putting you into the role of the Slayer eradicating a town of a Zombie infestation.
While you use cards to lay out the town you are clearing, the rest of the game (the combat) is dice driven!



Schleichfahrt: Sneaking Behind Enemy Lines

In Schleichfhart you take control of a Submarine. Your mission: find the components for a bomb, and deliver the bomb to the hostile base.
Cards are used to build the board and to show the encounters, combat - again - is dice driven.



Kind regards,
Kai

This list will be of interest, though it is hardly complete.

Utopia Engine and its follow-up Utopia Engine: Beast Hunter are excellent!

30 Rails is a great game. If you enjoy that I think you would also enjoy Reiner Knizia's Decathlon, it is an excellent solo PnP dice chucker.

https://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/66326/free-solo-print... is all free, solo, PNPs. Play time is hard to estimate sometimes.

Sometimes you can see a ses report in the monthly solo guild, and sometimes people will say how long they took to play. Alas, I think both Mini Rogue and Ladybug are longer than 30 minutes unless you lost quick. But, I also think they are both worth it, and I posted some ses reports of them in the monthly solo guild list, so you can see for yourself.

+1 for Utopia Engine. That game is a lot of fun, with reasonable difficulty. If I had to guess, I would say my win ratio is around 30 to 40%. I haven't tried Beast Hunter but I have been meaning to.
