Hi.
What games with pen and paper can be played on your own?
This question comes from a lifelong experience of having no friends/
only joking

GAMES magazine sometime back had a version of the Olympics that you could play by yourself with just a pen and paper.

For example, here's the paper version of the hurdles: Draw a series of 10 evenly-spaced vertical lines. Put your pen to the left of the leftmost line. Now, close your eyes, and try and draw a line that goes over ("jumps") the first line ("hurdle") and lands inbetween that, and then jumps over the next hurdle, until you've done 10 jumps. You get 1 point for each leap that starts on one side of a hurdle, goes over the hurdle without touching, and lands on the other side.

Place the paper at one end of the room. Now walk the to far end and take position.
Throw the pen as hard as you can at the paper.
