    Hi everyone.

    Do you know of a solo ww2 game? I'm just asking because I'm preparing for a new lockdown here.

    Thanks for your help!

    Medal of honor series had many games for ps2 but I am sure they did later versions for ps3 or ps4.

    For pc old panzer general games from pt 2 were fun and you can play them with the new pc systems. Youtube helps if needed.

    All the best!

    Sorry but I'm not searching for a computer or any kind of electronic game. I prefer tabletop version.

    There is the old Ambush! series from Victory Games, if you can find one online. I had lots of fun with it in my teens. You play as U.S. infantry squad in 1944 France. There is also Raid on St. Nazaire, where you are the British commandos making the raid to knock out the Normandie drydock. E-Bay is a place to look as well as on Noble Knight. It's an online store that has some old games, both board games and computer. They're based in Wisconsin, and ship internationally as well. Hope that helps.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I will check that.

    I just bought the game "Gato Leader". It seems very interesting and it's a solitary board game. That's the thing I need during the future lockdown.

    Still waiting for my "Gato Leader" game to arrive.

    Meanwhile, I was checking on what seems a very interesting military board game from the "OCS Operational Combat Series. Does any of you know if it's a solo game and if yes, do you know where I can buy it? I searched on amazon.ca because I am from Canada but I have found nothing yet.

    I played "Patton's Best" - a solitaire Sherman tank game from Avalon Hill - back in the day. Even made up my own rule set to play German tanks.

    Wow, thanks for the link.

    I have just receive "Gato Leader". I didn't play yet but it seems a very cool game. And I am waiting for two more games: "B-17 Flying Fortress and "The Hunters: Germans U-Boats at War". I will have to be careful with my budget. ;)

    "The Hunters" is pretty good. I've played it also.
