I absolutely love the top 200 solo list and I own, in different forms, 92 out of 200 games.

But that is not enough there are other games very good that have not been included.

Maybe because they are too wargame for the general taste. Maybe because they are oldies that have fallen out of taste. Maybe is a personal taste.

Which games would you like to recommend outside the top 200.

For the top 200 go here: 2019 People's Choice Top 200 Solo Games (200-1)

Also to see if I manage to play all the top 200 solo games I own (92 and counting), go here My crazy solo challenge - Playing all the solo games I own that made the top 200 solo list!

My number one in all the years I have participated. I did not participate this year, maybe it was the reason it left the top 200. Never mind, it is an acquire taste, and it is wonderful game. For me.

I think availability is hurting this game. It is AWESOME and if a reprint came, maybe with the expansions or upgraded components, it would make a top 50 for sure.

Together with B-29 another oldie that used to have a lot of love. It is not my favourite style of game, but it was sad seeing it leave.

An excellent game with less than stellar components and rules. Recently I played a couple of games of this and it is brutal but a lot of fun.

I suppose this shows the diminishing percentage in old grognard in BGG in general as this was an staple.

An Essen 2018 release that only recently got into distribution at least in the UK. I haven't seen it mentioned much, but I rather like it: Splendor is an obvious inspiration, but the core gameplay loop of placing triominoes on your board to match patterns works very well. The stages of the game are much more obvious than in Splendor (row 1 cards are initial bonuses, while row 2 cards are the bonuses you need to get the row 3 cards). The official solo mode works well for me.

Really surprised not to see this on the top 200. It's a very polarising game (I have a few friends who are determined never to play it again) but I've had some excellent solo sessions with it.

The dice are sick!

This is another one I'd have expected to see on the top 200. Bearing in mind the one huge athematic element (you get lots more points for discharging many dice at once than for kicking them out one at a time) this is a light and largely abstract Euro drafting and worker placement game; solo feels a lot like the standard multiplayer game. (I backed the KS, and the expansion KS currently awaiting production.)

Pandemic: Iberia is my favourite "normal" Pandemic, especially with the Influx of Patients-variant. But even more than that one I like the one set in The Netherlands. I think it's more streamlined and very thematic, with just the water to fight instead of four abstracted diseases. The variable goals make for good replayability.

My #2 and I'm totally certain I wasn't alone in giving this one a high rank. One of the few I own that will never leave my collection.

Big thanks to Jessica for her frequent SGOYT posts that introduced me to this. It wasn't easy to find but it was worth it.

A very immersive puzzler. The event cards are brilliant. They will not just have the virus mutate, but also effect lab personnel relationships, and give a glimpse of what's happening in the outside world. Also: Marvin.

I won't list everything that missed the Top 100 but this needs a mention in here. A free PnP that made it to being published. I didn't back it on KS as I wasn't so keen on the different art direction but I'd happily sling payment anyway to

.

Easily my favourite PnP, favourite travel game and the only game I have ever played in a hospital where I had to interrupt preparation for a procedure to explain the mechanics of the game to an intern who saw me playing it earlier.

It's quick, it has a small footprint and occasionally will drive you insane when you realise you should have done *that* instead. I love it.

I logged very many plays (166 so far) of Nightfighter using its nifty solitaire variant, finally playing through all the scenarios until I won each one... The campaign still awaits me!

Replaying its scenarios can be a bit repetitive, but I got into a groove with them. Some of them have a lot of variants.

I learned a lot about its subject (WW2 fighters trying to stop bombers during night missions) which I previously didn't know much about.

A great epic solitaire wargame by John Butterfield. 3 games in one (2-player, German solitaire, Allied solitaire), each with its own map and 64-page rulebook. Some short learning scenarios, plus the whole campaign (which takes me a couple of full days to finish).

It was clear that it wasn't going to appear in the Top 200 (it's a niche game within a niche), but this is by far the best solitaire game I've played this year.
It doesn't have a lot of decisions and most of them are the obvius ones, but the narrative and subject fascinated me (in a good and a bad way). This is one of those rare games that keep you thinking about it days after it's over.
Kudos to Ben Madison for the design and extra-kudos for the way he handled this (controversial) issue.
