[BGG] Terraforming Mars (2016) 2018-10-18 Overall, a good digital version of the game. A tad on the pricey side with the current issues for my tastes [SGOYT]
[BGG] Star Wars: Imperial Assault (2014) 2018-10-05 Solid tactical game. I think it plays better than Galaxy Defenders and has more content support. I'm tempted to make the VASSAL my goto way to play this solo just to save on setup and teardown time … [SGOYT]

[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]

[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) 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) 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) 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) 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) 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] 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) 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) 2016-08-08 Still enjoy it even if the bot slaps me around [SGOYT]
[BGG] Freedom: The Underground Railroad (2012) 2016-08-06 Hard game to win and tougher with the Station Master. Full of tough choices mid to end game [SGOYT]
[BGG] Friday (2011) 2016-08-05 Good game. Smooth playing with interesting decisions throughout [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) 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) 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) 2016-07-08 Zorg solo variant very tough. Fun ride. Not sure how I can ever get a victory against them. [SGOYT]

[BGG] Castles of Mad King Ludwig (2014) 2016-07-06 Like my solo rules better than official, but may still need some work. Meeple Realty organizer for game is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! [SGOYT]
[BGG] Commissioned (2016) 2016-07-06 Very challenging game. Liking my changes to the die results for solo play [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]
