I occasionally play SoBaH, but only as PvP game.

Never warmed to solo anything. Sometimes play dungeoncrawlers like Descent. Used to play traditional RPGs (without minis) regularly, but it's probably a couple years since last, and more like five years since regular play.

Anyone interested in Solo Wargaming should check the Solo Wargamers Association Web Pages : https://lonewarriorswa.com particularly the Rules/Complete Games section : link

Nothing new here. I've been playing Flying Buffalo's Solo Dungeons for Tunnels & Trolls for some 40 years. There were a few for Runequest as well.

When I play solo, I use games from Two Hour Wargames that are designed with solo and co-op in mind. Lots of choices from fantasy to scifi, WW2 to Dark Ages, etc. There's also an active FB page, SOLO Wargaming with Miniatures: link

There's really a very thin line here. I play Mantic's Dungeon Saga. Is that a board game or a miniatures game? I think it's a miniatures game, as would be Warhammer Quest. It's tactical. It's pretty much a skirmish level game. It can be played either as an opposed or unopposed co-op. It's also got an RPG element. It has a board, as such, but they're tiles that are reconfigured in different ways to create different scenarios and tactical situations. And while it comes with a basic campaign of already designed scenarios, with expansion packs to add more (as well as more heroes and monsters), it's also designed to allow for creation of original scenarios.
So does it fit the question of the poll? I think so, so therefore I chose "Yes, I do."

Other: This question is confusing!

As Deucey, it's a confusing question. I play solo games with miniatures and board games, I play coop games in RPG's… I must be missing something.

Had great success with the Terminator Genesys board/miniature game. It is cooperative by the players against the machine. Yes, you have to move the 'bots and shoot them but that is amusing also.

I've also played some 2HW.

RPGs…not since about the 80s.
