What games need a solo mode?

Supporter

Is there a game you'd love to play more? A game that is totally amazing but is hard to find a group to play it with? These are the kinds of games that scream for a really good solo mode. 

I have tons of games that have great solo modes already, but there are a few that I would really enjoy if they had a good AI opponent. 

My number one game would be#Star Wars: Rebellion. I don't know how to implement or create a solo AI for this game but if such a thing existed it would be incredible. Maybe there could be some kind of App assisted AI? I don't know. Someone make it happen please!

What games would you like to see a solo mode for?

I was surprised that #Glen More II: Chronicles didn't have a solo mode. They ended up adding it through a recent Kickstart #Glen More II: Highland Games.

I would've liked seeing a solo mode for #Lions of Lydia: A Strategic Game of Ancient Prestige. Do you feel the same or not really?

I also think I'd get a lot of play out of #1775: Rebellion if it had a solo mode.  I love the theme and even though it's a pretty light game I think I'd get it out solo quite a bit, especially if they had a few more scenarios available.  What do you think , would you like a solo mode for #878: Vikings - Invasions of England?

I know that one game on my wishlist would probably move up a lot if there was an official solo mode. #Empires of the Void II would be close to the top if it was 1 - 5 instead of 2 - 5.

I know you don't like unofficial solo variants.....But there are a few available on BGG.

That's actually that doesn't like unofficial variants (in general).  I actually love trying out unofficia variants.

My bad, I don't know why, but I thought neither of you like them..... Sorry.

That's because you associate both of us with greatness. 

Supporter5 months ago

I guess that is a possibility.

Supporter5 months ago

Amen!

Supporter5 months ago

So say we both.

Oh yes this is an awesome answer.

#Champions of Midgard definitley needs a solo variant. I would have said #Star Wars X-Wing, but they just came out with one. I have yet to try it, but really want to see how it plays.

Supporter5 months ago

I'm talking official modes only.

Any plans to try this one out?

Supporter5 months ago

Yes, if I ever have time.

#War of the Ring (Second Edition)

#Through the Ages: A New Story of Civilization

#Eclipse: Second Dawn for the Galaxy

These are games that are high on my wish list, but lack a dedicated solo mode.

I think my selection would go to #The Castles of Burgundy, I crave playing this game often and think it could function well solo with an AI!

I do think there are some fan made solo rules on bgg. I believe that one, or some were included as official in the latest edition if I remember correctly.

Oh snap!! I need to look into that, I have been playing a lot online but I much prefer a tactile experience.

Cheers, good luck. There is a number to choose from.

I would love to see a more nuanced solo version of #Archipelago, there is a solo version but that reduces it to a pure economic game which is not where archipelago shines. I would like to see an automita which could capture some of the social aspect of the game.

Supporter5 months ago

Is a Automita different than an Automa? Like maybe a little girl version?

Haha, it is the dyslexic version (also speel check doesn't seem to work on here for me)

Supporter5 months ago

Have you tried the solo expansion? Is it fun that way even if it is a different experience?

I did, it's one of the things I will write about this week....stay tuned

Supporter5 months ago

I look forward to it.
