My solo MG "How to succeed at business without really trying" works but it produces a straight line to my goal. My hero, John Smith, is slowly moving up the ladder. For the story to be 1) realistic, and 2) interesting, John needs to experience problems. In the Movie the fellow got into advertising (big mistake). My hero is in accounting. I think that the villan, CEO Lyle Nogood, should decide he is an enemy and start working to destroy him. This will put the story into a crisis. Smith either advances or dies.

Solo games work - but I don't think they will be to everyone's taste. I like arguing with myself.

I probably would not enjoy a purely solo game, but it is an enjoyable way to add more gamelike mechanics to even planning the games I run for my PCs. It makes me feel a bit more like a player in my own world and that is fun.

Based on encouragement from one player I expect we will run at least one active session as a Matrix game, possibly something that takes place in the spirit world in my setting where anything is possible...
