In another thread I described how my gaming life was having to go solo ( except for the few games my wife enjoys). This is a my first steps into solitaire gaming. Please add any games you enjoy....

This game is on the way. Looks good...good reviews and with this book
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Battle-Falklands-Pan-Grand-Strategy/...
should keep me going a while.
The excellent review by Ian Wakeham is a must read :
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/444060/solitaire-war-gam...
Also what could be better than the quote:
"All profits from sales of this game are donated to: the Royal British Legion and the Argentine Veteranos de Guerra."
well done

Back to DVG for a while now. I like to have a variety of eras to play and the Napoleonic era is one of my favorites. Hopefully it wont be too long before this is released.
This is going to be a game to play while re-listening to David Markham's informative talks on Napoleon 101 podcasts:

If Field Commander Napoleon takes too long in arriving I think I'll tick the old Ancients box with this title.
I'll re-watch Michael Woods excellent documentary "In the Footsteps of Alexandra"
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Footsteps-Alexander-Great-DVD/dp/B00...

Then pull out the game to relive the glories...

This was the original Field Commander and one on my list. It will remind be of my uncle Jack who fought the Desert Fox (some would say almost single-handedly) in his tank while cooking his breakfast on the front of his tank.

Guess what its Joe Steadman's fault again. Read his review on May14th of Silent War on his Blog:
http://zoctalk.blogspot.com/
And it seems a great game. So if this game hasn't come out by Christmas I guess Santa will be bringing Silent War... better put it in the list then.

So What you think about this one Joe?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DJekThWA7xQ&feature=channel

Well thanks Joe that's another one on my list.
Reminds me of my dad who arrived a few days later to do his bit against fascism only to get blown up by a mortar and shipped home on the Hms Belfast.... our own personal hero.
Thank goodness I have only had to play wargames and not live them.

Not a solitaire game but one I'm determined to make work as one. I'm sorry Mr. Tolkein, your book was good and you did finish the story but George RR Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire is my favorite fantasy tale.
Loosely based on, but different from the Battlelore system and with an expansion already announced this is a certain buy for me...
Now George about finishing the latest book....
Also HBO will be releasing a TV serial based on the books next year..

16. Board Game: Arkham Horror [Average Rating:7.26 Overall Rank:335] [Average Rating:7.26 Unranked]
Board Game: Arkham Horror
A fun, if somewhat lengthy game, which can be played solo. The rules can be cumbersome at first, but once you get them down pat, you can have very memorable stories in Arkham.

The game has a plethora of expansions which allow you to increase or decrease the difficulty as you see fit. Also, if you manage to coerce people to play with you, it's one of my favorite co-op games. The best part, though, is the setting. Hands down.

Prax

My most played solo game is this one. I have about 18 or so missions with the same plane. While some may say this has no real decision making, I still find it fraught with peril and I try and get my guys over the target, bomb the target, and then make it back home.

Pretty easy to learn, it goes by pretty fast after the first few missions.

Putting this one up due to Antonio B-D comments... looks good. Wonder how it compares to Frontline?
Thanks for the suggestion.

What a great solo game. It's a tough one in my opinion. You have such a limited amount of planes and pilots. It's sometimes better to the raid just damage your city that risk loosing a pilot. Then just hope for some rain.

Give this one a try, it plays both solo and 2 player.

Another good option for the solo player. Out of print I'm afraid but still easy to get a copy via e-bay and the like. Like B17 it is very emmersive and the further you get with your tank crew the more important it becomes what happens to them. Play the campaign game for full flavour. You really do get a feeling for just how hard it was to beat Jerry Armour with a basic Sherman tank. Great fun to play. Combat can be long so having somewhere to leave it set up is useful. If not Vassal has a very good mod for Patton's Best which allows you to record the present state of your game with very little fuss! I am currently playing a campaign and am really getting quite a buzz out of it.
