I'm looking for a (good) deduction game for 1 player, other than Mastermind or it's several variants.

Does such a thing exist?

Thanks,
jrbentley

Black Box. 'Good' might be stretching things, though.

Take a look at Fleet 1715 and Old Town.
You can also take a look at Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective: The Thames Murders & Other Cases

Wouldn't Pandemic et al fit this bill too?

I recently got a thrift find called Orient Express
and it plays solo,I thought it was ok for something to do when your bored.
But you get a game board and similar to clue you move around and ask suspect questions and you look in the rule book to what case you are on and it gives a certain number,You find that number and read the clue.

Some are pretty vague,so you have to take notes and eventually the clues will build up till you figure out the suspect. All while this is going on you roll a dice and the train chip moves around the board and you have to have it solved by the time the train hits a certain city.

I seen them still on ebay here and there pretty cheap,like I said it's not a bad game and I almost prefer to play this one solo.

Set isn't exactly a deduction game, but it scratches (at least for me) a rather similar itch.
