Hi,

I created a GeekList to get recommendations but I was told it was not the best way, so here I am. This is the GeekList

http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/142817/real-print-and-play


The idea is to find P&P games wich one can really play after printing, in the sense, that not too much manufacture is needed.

The ideal game would be this [but anything near that or with some of this features is ok]:

- Preferably to play solo.

- A game printable in standard size papers and w/o colour information [or just greys, to print in in b/w printer].

- Not too much scissor&glue work.

- Not strange or too much components [for me the best would be just some dices and/or generic chips].

- Playable while reading the instructions [kind of auto-explained].



In other words, I am at work now and want to print something that allows me to play a bit this evening.

IDEAS?

Reiner Knizia's Decathlon comes to mind. It's not particularly exciting solitaire, which like a lot of such games consists of beating your top score.

Howzabout Utopia Engine, which is a solo game, just a couple of pages to print, and some dice to throw. No need to go near scissors or glue.

Lots of them out there.

First off there are a lot of Cheapass games that can be put together very easily and played.

Devil Bunny Needs a Ham is one that doesn't require a deck just some dice and counters.

Infection Express doesn't have a whole lot of things needed other than dice and counters. Print out the map and rules and viola.

Patrol Lost is also a pretty easy to construct game that can be played rather easily with a variety of themes. Lots of counters needed but gives you use for your change jar.

Also all the "pocket" games.

Zombie in my pocket
Airborne in my pocket
Fairy Tale in my pocket

What else?

Jasper and Zot is an amusing little game.
Dungeon in a Tin is simple but well made though does require some dice management or creation.
