[BGG] 7 Wonders: Duel (2015) 2017-03-30 Scott is still sneaky even on basic level. Satisfying win [SGOYT]
[BGG] Cry Havoc (2016) 2017-03-25 Good solo variant. Good way to learn the factions. I'm still working through some issues with the battle resolution, but I would still recommend [SGOYT]

December 2016
[BGG] Thunderbolt Apache Leader (2012) 2016-12-31 A little rusty, but good to get back in the groove [SGOYT]
[BGG] Utopia Engine (2010) 2016-12-30 Really like this game. May not play it a lot, but it's a fun diversion. I liked the way you construct the math problems to get the results you need. I think I like this better than 30 Rails. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Patchwork (2014) Thumbs Up! 2016-12-26 Easy playing solo variant. Might be too easy. Need to try the other variant. Puzzly just like the regular game [SGOYT]
[BGG] Leaving Earth (2015) Thumbs Up! 2016-12-24 Really satisfying solo game experience. Heavy on the planning side, but it is rewarding. Outcome based press your luck experience adds a nice twist. Would have made my top 20 this year [SGOYT]
[BGG] 7 Wonders: Duel (2015) 2016-12-04 Solid game. Need to give the solo variant more tries to see how I really feel about this game solo. Really do like it two-player though [SGOYT]

[BGG] Friday (2011) Thumbs Up! 2016-11-08 [SGOYT]
[BGG] Thunderbolt Apache Leader (2012) 2016-11-04 Again, AC-130 delivers the goods... death from above. Thunderbolt/Cobra combo working quite well. Rolls have been good the last two days, so I bet they'll even out the other way the last two days [SGOYT]
[BGG] Thunderbolt Apache Leader (2012) 2016-11-01 AC-130 Spectre amazing weapons platform against the right targets [SGOYT]

[BGG] 30 Rails (2016) Thumbs Up! 2016-10-30 Very interesting Solo PnP with pencil, paper, and 2d6's. Like it way better than PocketCiv. Definitely a nice solo game to play while watching a ball game [SGOYT]
[BGG] Star Realms: Colony Wars (2015) 2016-10-29 The Shadows solo variant is always tough. Trade Federation ability...grrr! [SGOYT]

[BGG] Thunderbolt Apache Leader (2012) 2016-09-28 [SGOYT]
[BGG] Thunderbolt Apache Leader (2012) 2016-09-25 Amazing game! Lots of ups and downs. One of those games, I can't stop thinking about throughout the day [SGOYT]
[BGG] Thunderbolt Apache Leader (2012) 2016-09-23 Totally awesome solo gaming experience. No regrets buying this what so ever. Gives me that "just one more turn" feeling when playing Civilization or old school X-Com - "just one more mission" [SGOYT]
[BGG] Thunderbolt Apache Leader (2012) 2016-09-20 Great solitaire game. I highly recommend it even if you're not a "wargamer". Not a fully detailed simulation, but a good level of abstraction to capture the "fun" of managing a wing or an air grou… [SGOYT]
[BGG] Star Realms (2014) Thumbs Up! 2016-09-12 ShaunGamer's "Shadows" solo variant is excellent [SGOYT]

[BGG] Wings for the Baron (second edition) (2015) 2016-09-11 Still a fun game. I'm not sure my dice are balanced. I may stick with no more than 2 or 3 NPC's. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Wings for the Baron (second edition) (2015) 2016-09-03 Really liking the solo rules. Plays very smooth and full of interesting choices every round. Have found a couple of issues with the rulebook which are going to be corrected in the next printing [SGOYT]
[BGG] Wings for the Baron (second edition) (2015) 2016-09-01 Official solo rules a winner! Highly recommend for solo play [SGOYT]

[BGG] Wings for the Baron (second edition) (2015) 2016-08-30 After initial play, wanting to play more. Really like what I see in the design. Cool theme (Economic game with a war theme). Nice historical flavor. Need to try the official solo rules. [SGOYT]

[BGG] Concordia (2013) 2016-08-17 Pretty good bot if you're up to managing two at a time which may not be an issue with COIN solo players :) Probably needs some playtest with people completely fresh to it as opposed to me having so… [SGOYT]
[BGG] Castles of Mad King Ludwig (2014) Thumbs Up! 2016-08-14 Secrets works well with variant. Nice way to pass the time [SGOYT]
[BGG] Conflict of Heroes: Awakening the Bear! – Russia 1941-42 (2008) 2016-08-14 Awesome squad tactical combat system. Can't wait to upgrade to 2nd edition and get a hold of the Solo Expansion. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Roll for the Galaxy (2014) Thumbs Up! 2016-08-08 Still enjoy it even if the bot slaps me around [SGOYT]
[BGG] Freedom: The Underground Railroad (2012) Thumbs Up! 2016-08-06 Hard game to win and tougher with the Station Master. Full of tough choices mid to end game [SGOYT]

[BGG] Concordia (2013) 2016-07-12 Overall, still a really enjoyable game, but the AI isn't quite as predictable and isn't that smart [SGOYT]
[BGG] Concordia (2013) 2016-07-12 Smoothing playing solo variant. AI might be a tad predictable Very enjoyable. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Deep Space D-6 (2015) Thumbs Up! 2016-07-10 Solid solitary PnP game. Nice dice worker placement mechanic. Even though you can stall out, it still has interesting decisions. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Friday (2011) Thumbs Up! 2016-07-09 Still an interesting solo deckbuilder. Strange theme, but the game works it. [SGOYT]
[BGG] Power Grid: The Robots (2011) 2016-07-09 Interesting experience. Not the smartest AI, but does make things intriguing. I did play them wrong, so will need to see how well it stacks up played correctly next time [SGOYT]
[BGG] Alien Frontiers (2010) Thumbs Up! 2016-07-08 Zorg solo variant very tough. Fun ride. Not sure how I can ever get a victory against them. [SGOYT]

[BGG] Sumoku (2010) 2016-07-05 A nice little puzzle game to kill the time if you're a sudoku/Qwirkle fan, but don't expect it to be quick in solo [SGOYT]
[BGG] Star Realms: Colony Wars (2015) 2016-07-04 Star Realms: Colony Wars seems a little more powerful in damage to cost ratio across all factions. Makes this solo variant (Pirates of darkstar) easier to win [SGOYT]
