What games do players play
The best board games to play alone in 2021
It is not always easy to find teammates and then bring them to the same table on the same evening. Fortunately, many games have special rules that make board games playable by one person. Some games have even been specially developed for one player (for example Friday or The Negotiator - we have created our own list for these games: The best games that you can only play alone).
Some games go a different way and contain a solo campaign or a so-called Automa opponent, which is controlled (semi-) automatically by special game rules (e.g. Scythe or flapping wings).
There are many solo games, for example from strategy board games for 1 person, card games for one, logic games for 1, solo dice games, single player board games with story and many other single player board games.
Do you want games with a different number of players?
You can play board games, card games and dice games with very different numbers of players - even alone. We have made many lists for each exact number of players and for varying numbers of players. You can find our "by number of players" lists below.

Queen Gimnax has ordered the reconquest of the northern lands. As a cartographer in their service, you are tasked with mapping this area and claiming it for the kingdom of Nalos. Through official edicts, the Queen announces which lands she claims most, and you will increase your standing by fulfilling her demands. But you are not alone in this wilderness. The Dragul contest your claims with their outposts, so you must carefully draw your boundaries to lessen their influence. Reclaim most of the land the Queen has requested and you will be proclaimed the greatest cartographer in the kingdom.
