Which of these games by Z-man games do you think is the best one? I can only get one, and I am trying to decide which one to get:

Sylvion
Onirim
Castellion
Nautilion

...or something else?

I'd say that would have to be Pandemic Legacy: Season 1--the #1 rated game on BGG, and published by Z-Man.

I can't tell what kind of games you like, buy my answer would be Gaia Project or Terra Mystica.

I assume you're referring to the oniverse series that can be played solo?

If so, I would say Onirim is the best. However, I would recommend the app rather than the physical game, so you can avoid all the constant shuffling.

Urbion and Castellion are good too.

+1 for app. I picked it up a few days ago (free on iOS with two optional expansions for 99p each). It’s very well done. I don’t have the physical game but it looks like there’d be a looooot of shuffling involved.

Of those: Castellion. It's a wonderful spacial puzzle.

Onirim has WAY TOO MUCH shuffling. If you want to play it, I recommend the app.

Sylvion was too easy for me. I never lost it, and thus found it to be boring. It's a shame because I think it has the best artwork.

I have not played Nautillion because of the dice. It didn't look well implemented.

Doesn't sound like these games are very popular!

I thought Onirim was considered one of the best solo games ever made?

If you're specifically after solo player information you might be better off asking here 1 Player guild as whilst 1 player board gaming is popular here, it's mystifying to most of the rest of us, and you will probably not get the answers you want.

For me, I rank those four as such:
Sylvion
Onirim
Nautilion
Castellion

However, there isn't much of a difference between the them except for Castellion. I really wanted to like this one, but it really fell flat for me.

Nautilion really has some interesting choices with the dice.
