I frequently see questions asked about what games can be played with just a single player, and while there have been several other lists created for this purpose, I aim to make this the definitive list. Please add any games I may have missed.

The two questions I always ask when looking at games are; "What's this about?" and, "Is this solitaire only, or can I play it with others?" To answer these questions, I have listed a brief summary of each game (stolen from the game's page) and listed the number of players supported.

All comments are welcome and appreciated.

The "Alone in the Pits" solitaire rules published in The General and available here on BGG make this a viable solo game, when it is difficult to find other gamers who share your interest.

"In Enki-Des, you play a young Ukri warrior who dies on the battlefield. You find yourself at the first Soul Gate and must fight the first six different guardians from the first six soul gates while searching for your Enko-ori in order to reach Enko-Rochimga at the seventh gate and win the game."


This is a nice P&P solo game. All you need to play are three six-sided dice, a set of beads or eurocubes, and the game files.

The game is available in both English and Spanish.

Quote:
You are a modern day shaman and supernatural champion. Waging your secret war against dark forces intent on reshaping the universe, you also face off against destiny in the wake of an uncertain prophecy that foretells destruction but gives the promise of hope. Across the world, the infant Queens of Fate are being reincarnated into the world. Can you find them before the dark powers get to them?


This is a 1 player P&P narrative card game that uses a Tarot deck instead of an average deck of cards. A complete Rider-Waite Tarot deck is available under the "File" section of the game.

Quote:
A fan of horror movies or slasher films? This free print and play is your chance to see how you measure up to the classic greats. Are you the next Jason? Or will the cops end your reign of terror before it begins?

With victims that can fight back, potential news media alerting even more cops to you, and house weapons that can either help or harm you, things won't be as simple as you think.


This is a P&P solo game that only needs a standard deck of cards, two dice, a few beads, a pen, and some paper.

A free single-player print-and-play, this game is less about actual rock-paper-scissors and more about being in a crooked Rock-Paper-Scissors (Roshambo) tournament! Exploit your opponents' weaknesses while working around your own crippling disadvantages. When that doesn't work, cheat or bribe the officials!


This is a P&P game for 1 player. All you need to play is 1 six-sided die and the instructions, which are included under the "file" section of the game.

I like this for a quick solo game. Not much to do except roll the dice and readjust life points. The game plays itself, but it has huge potential for variants and re-themes.

My re-theme is a tormented Japanese village and the 'children' are four Geisha who must be rescued from the demons.

Early 90's co-op game that plays well solitaire. I stumbled across a copy in shrink in the bargain bin of a small town hobby store. This one is based on the Dark Conspiracy RPG. Just don't forget the expansion Minion Nation (managed to find a shrink copy of that as well).

From the description:

In the not so distant future, mankind has managed to lay waste to earth's surface. Even though forced to find a new home on the ocean ground, nothing stopped humans to continue battling each other.
You are a mercenary trying to make his living by serving those that pay most.
Your mission sounds easy at first glance:
Scout the ocean ground for three different resources and bring them back to the hangar, so the technicans can build a bomb you are to drop over the enemy base.
Here comes the downside: You are all on your own between the beasts of the deep sea as well as the very well armed hostile submarines.
And the resources to equip your sub are limited!
Good luck, mercenary - we count on you.
