I've a somewhat scattergun approach to gaming in general and solo gaming in particular. It's probably something that pushes me towards solo gaming, since I have the freedom to mess with ideas, pack something up and start something new, or just try something that might now work.

To that end I wanted some way to track things I've played, things I'm interested in, things I don't want to forget about, or things I might want some feedback on. Logging plays seems a bit limited since I quite often don't "finish" a game, or I get sidetracked into something else and come back to it much later. A geeklist seems the ideal alternative.

Obviously I won't open it up to additions, but feel free to comment.

Been messing a lot with computer games and RPGs so it won't be just confined to boardgames.

Not sure it'll be of interest to anyone else but useful for me at least.

I'd been thinking about this or Vietnam Solitaire for a while but I finally decided to give this one a go since the topic seemed to appeal a little more.

I make quite a few print & play games, so really pleased that White Dog games continue to provide an option for print & play purchase which saves on shipping small bits of cardboard across the ocean. Grabbed this earlier today, built a copy in an hour or so inbetween lots of other stuff and I've just had time to set it up and start working through the rules.

First impressions are good, lots going on though the rules are simpler than they look, just quite a bit of procedure to follow. Seems like a lot of theme packed in, it's a topic I don't know much about so I'm going to grab an Osprey essential histories or something to find out a bit more.

Will update when I've played it some more but this seems like something that deserves more attention.

This is just out on Steam and I have a load of credit just itching to be spent. Going to watch some videos but I think I might give this one a go.

I've had this one sitting around for ages and this blog post reminded me about it. Seems like no reason not to give this a solo run for some alien killing fun.

I've been messing with Two Hour Wargames stuff a lot recently. It's taken a while but the system is really sinking in and the more I play the more ideas I have for the various product of theirs that I own.

This one is on the simpler end, it's really just a simple way to create a dungeon and resolve encounters. I like it a lot and it beats the rules that come with the D&D boardgames from which I've stolen most of the pieces but I think I'll need to add some more fluff to it if it's to hold my interest.

A possibility for conversion to some sort of virtual tabletop, something else I mess with occasionally. I have tried this out in the BAttlegrounds Gaming Engine and I might create something a little more polished.

Can't find much info on this one but I just came across it whilst looking for something else. Might give it a go.

OK so Mad Max has sent me post apocalyptic so I've been pulling out some games to try a few things out. This one is pretty easy to get going with though it has the usual slightly different way of playing that 2 Hour Wargames often do.

Just been working through the basic turn sequence and trying out the various actions. Next up I'm going to move this off the table into a virtual tabletop and try to get a campaign going.

Details to follow.
