Viticulture's Automa deck is so simple to use that it has inspired many others to create an Automa for other games.
Games with Automa opponents for solo play

Have you seen this geeklist of BGG solo variants:
Non-solitaire games that have solo rules in BGG

There are variants for the games you listed and for games you already own, like 7 Wonders Duel, The Castles of Burgundy and World's Fair 1893.

Anything by Uwe Rosenberg is a good bet. My personal favorite though is Le Havre.

I also like the solo variant for Pax Porfiriana but that may be stretching the definition of "Euro" a bit.

I've heard great things about the solo variant of The Networks as well but can't attest to that from personal experience as I've only played this with 3 to 5 players, never solo. I can personally attest to the awesomeness of the game as a multiplayer game though.


Is there enough variety from game to game on Le Havre? I'll definitely check out The Networks! Thanks for the reply!


It's slight but it's there. Honestly, I just love the challenge of it. It's simple and yet I've not yet hit what is considered a winning score and I've played the game about 6 times at this point. If you're looking for an Uwe Rosenberg game with more variety check out Agricola and/or Caverna. I've only played Agricola but I've heard the two games a quite similar with Agricola being a more streamlined and less forgiving game than Caverna.

Honestly, just check out anything by Uwe Rosenberg.

Thanks! Amazing geeklists, I'll definitely check some of those variants. The hard part is that is difficult telling by some comments what variants are just fun to learn the game and what variants are more engaging, but you helped a lot with those links. Thanks for the reply

I had Agricola but I just played multiplayer. I like the variety that comes from the cards, but is kind of a consensus that the solo variant by Uwe is not that exciting. Caverna is a no-go for now because of the static setup and huge setup time. I'll try to watch some Le Havre playthrough. Thanks for the reply

What about Monster Lands? I'm not sure how good the solo mode is, but it's part of the game design and should be reasonable I hope. The game looks smashing otherwise - it's got a last few days on Kickstarter with some very nice exclusives that will offer even more replayability and flavour.

The link is here:

There's also a BGR contest going for one Monster level pledge:

+1 for The Networks. It was my go-to solo for a while.
