Thanks for sharing your tips!

I actually disagree on game size/complexity though. My first big solo activity during the outbreak was a playthrough of GMT’s Holland 44, a large hex and counter Market Garden game. Not a complicated game but a lot of units on the board. As a solo player, I can be as slow as I want with a large, more complex game, go back and check rules, house rule confusing things on the fly, or even put into effect solutions in case i have been doing a rule wrong.

Also my gaming group tends to like small skirmishes, so I can do bigger, more complicated games solo.

(Not that I don’t like smaller, simpler games though. I have a Neil Thomas’s 1 Hr Wargames in my gaming trailer and am gradually playing through the scenarios solo!)
