Solitaire War Games

(by Simon Mueller)

There’s a bunch of geeklists about solitaire games around already, but none is strictly about solitaire WAR games. Since users more frequently specifically ask for recommendations of solitaire war games than solitaire games in general, and having responded to at least five of such prompts, I decided to create this geeklist. I hope it will serve as a reference. Expansions are included in the base game entry only when they have separate BGG entries.

How this list is ordered:

1) Boxed games. In chronological order, but games which use the same or similar systems are listed in sequence.

2) Magazine games. Ordered alphabetically and by publisher.

3) Print’n’Play games. Disorder. Read More

I want to do this! What’s This?

Solitaire wargames are board games typically based on historical conflicts–most often, World War II, though some deal with other wars, like the Napoleonic, Peloponnesian and Persian Gulf conflicts.

The rules of these games are varied, but they do share some elements, including die rolls, sequences that must be followed and random events that substitute for a second human player.

There’s a bunch of geeklists about solitaire games around already, but none is strictly about solitaire WAR games. Since users more frequently specifically ask for recommendations of solitaire war games than solitaire games in general, and having responded to at least five of such prompts, I decided to create this geeklist. I hope it will serve as a reference. Expansions are included in the base game entry only when they have separate BGG entries.

2) Magazine games. Ordered alphabetically and by publisher.

3) Print’n’Play games. Disorder.

Since I virtually have no experience with Print’n’Play or Magazine games, I only list them without providing comments. I would be glad, if another user with more experience in PnP or Mag games added more entries or singled out a particular game listing it as an separate entry, but unfortunately the best I can do to express my gratitude for this is by giving a single lousy thumb-up.

Please also note that this list is strictly about war games which are primarily meant to be played solitaire. For example Up Front, although containing a few rules (or hints) on solitaire play, should not be on this list.

I also want to restrict this game on games about real or hypothetical wars (conflict simulations), so
please leave fantasy or science fiction games off this list!
