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 rules have variations for a two-player version, but I've only played as solitaire so far. As a one-player game, it's great fun.

In this solo game the player acts as the allied coalition. The player attempts to pound the Iraqi army into submission before the non-player game system as the Iraqis achieves a political victory. Most of the game covers the air war at a scale of 4 days per turn.

Solo dicefest, recreating the old video game of the same name.

Fly through up to 36 sectors of space and face the enemies. You will either destroy them first, or they will damage your ship.

Can you rid space of all the bases before your ship sustains 100 points of damage?

You'll need to provide about 6 dice (6d6), pencil and paper (or write in the margin of the play sheet). The enemy encounter die, complete with pixeled 1980s spaceship graphics, is provided with the game files.

"In this solitaire game, you are the explorer, seeking treasure in old tombs. Each turn, more of the crypt is revealed as you travel along the dark and dusty tunnel. Each game is different, and danger lurks around every corner.

The object of this quest is the recovery of the Pharaoh's Scepter."
