I often hear people make the ridiculous claim that single player games are "puzzles". Let's prove them wrong by making a bunch of fun single player strategy games!
- How do I know it's a strategy game and not a puzzle or a contest or something else? Are there ambiguous decisions the player has to make? Is the objective to *solve* the game, or just win? When in doubt, shoot for a binary win condition. Read more about what makes something strategy-game-ish, here.
- Is cooperative allowed? Let's try to make 1 player games, but if your game is 1 player "by committee" that's okay too of course.
