I am brand new to the wonderful world of solitaire gaming. I love to play games (computer and board), but I've really been "stuck" with just computer games or solo-playing obviously multiplayer games, which leaves quite the bad taste in my mouth.
So, I just picked up Zulus on the Ramparts from Victory Point Games
And I haven't been able to stop playing. I've got about 40 play-throughs in the last week, and loving every minute, despite only achieving 6 "Victories".
It makes me want more. A game designed from the ground up as a solo player game can be a great experience, especially if you're like me and have no real "community" nearby to play face to face.
What are some of the other "must play" solo games out there? I've seen the Robinson Crusoe game mentioned, but it appears to be hard to find. I see the same designer has a new game coming about the colonization of Mars, a topic that is right in my wheelhouse. I've seen Comancheria mentioned here, but not altogether interested in that topic.
What say all of you? Also, any tips on finding or trying to start a game group in my community? you'd think with a population over 65,000, there'd be several, but outside of a few teen-based D&D-type groups there doesn't appear to be any. Anyone tried boardgaming using the Internet as the "table"? How'd that work?
