Well sadly, that's soon to be yours truly. We're moving to live near the seaside next month, my old cronies the Dynamic Dunderheads, may get to visit every six months and that's about it. There's a wargames club near where we are going, but I'd sooner stick pins in mi' eyeballs than join one of them again. So it's the lonely furrow of solo gaming, in which I need sage advice... What's the best way to proceed for lonely wargamers , some decent rules (any period as long as they're of the KISS principle) and are there any morale boosting plus's to 'walking alone, a man of steel'?

There´s links to free wargaming rules here (Close to the bottom of the lists)
viewtopic.php?f=12&t=10207
I can´t remember wether or which link has solo rules but they are there on one or more of the links. The links haven´t been checked for a while so if you find any down then please tell :-)
What period(s) rules are you looking for?

Anything with a nod to solo wargaming. I can send the Tardis anywhere from the Vikings to Galactic Heroes!

Harry Faversham:

Just out of curiosity, why do you have such a strong aversion to joining a wargamers club? Is it the perceived lack of personal hygiene, or is that just a USA thing?

Too many of 'em like the sound of their own voice for my liking...
we're playing toy sowjers, summat not to be taken too seriously!

'Doom Squad - Solo Wargame Rules' just arrived and I'm skiving off packing to have a read, and I'm impressed. I can see my teams being Highlanders and Gurkhas on the NWF, with the Mad Mullah's baddies popping up all over the place!

:yeah:
