What's On This Page (And What's Not)

These are Cthulhu Mythos-themed Solo games.

More specifically ...

Mythos-Themed: These lists include solo supplements and games featuring the Cthulhu Mythos. These lists do not include games that contain a mention of the Cthulhu Mythos but are not generally Mythos-themed. (Yes, Illuminati has "The Servants of Cthulhu." No, that doesn't make it a Mythos-themed game.)

Solo Games: This category includes games are designed for play with a single player or have rules for play with a single player. For role-playing game supplements, this can mean either scenarios with just one player and no Keeper (usually written in the style of the old Choose Your Own Adventure or Fighting Fantasy books), or it can mean scenarios with one Keeper and one player. For boardgames and miniatures games, this can mean games designed specifically for a single player, or it can mean games that include single-player rules but that can also be played by more players. For video games, this means games that are designed to be played by a single player.
