Would anyone have a recommended set of one player rules for either of the above mentioned games? Thanks!

A lot of people solo Pandemic (and other co-ops) by playing multiple players themselves.

This technique can feel somewhat artificial, but it works. I find playing 3 roles is a good balance for a single player.

Yes I guess with coop games it's not that weird as pretty much one player can control the strategy. So basically for pandemic I should control two players.... I'll try that. Thanks.

Pandemic is always a solo game. It just sometimes has other people hanging around the table.

+1 for SoloPlay Carcassonne. Very puzzle-y.

And I like Owll's Ultimate Solo Challenge for Pandemic. I like only having one hand to keep track of. Plus you get to use multiple roles in each game.
