I've seen lots of sites where you can play against other people. Problem is, most of the games I am not familiar enough with to know how to play even passably well. I'd like to try some of them out against a computer opponent to see what they are all about before I go challenging other folks. None of the sites that I have been to offer this option (unless I am simply not looking in the right spot) can any one suggest an online gaming site or two that let's me play games (mostly Euro-type) vs. a computer?

Although they seem to be having some tech problems atm, a great site for play is

http://www.gametableonline.com/index.php

Once there, almost all the games can be played solo against the computer. The computer is not very good mind you (except robo rally where it is a genius!) but great way to learn the rules and interface.

There's also a version of Agricola that you can play solo, from your desktop, but I can't remember where I got it. blush Hopefully someone else knows where you can get it...

Thanks, this pointed directly to Agricola, one of the games that was on my mind actually when I posted this. Have never played yet. Though I hear it is good.

Great thread to the OP, I was just thinking the same thing. I want to learn new games but hesitant to play online versus someone and drag down the experience.
