Over on The Masters Council, I started a thread last weekend about one-on-one gaming:

I was wondering what sorts of experiences people here have had with one-on-one gaming, by which I mean one GM and one player. It’s been something I’ve been giving some thought to, due to a lack of local games, and I wanted to get some idea of what I might be getting myself into.

What sorts of challenges does it present for the GM (and the player)? What are the benefits? Are there any game systems or settings that tend to work especially well (or especially poorly) with the one-on-one format?

There have been some good responses so far, but I’d certainly welcome more (either on MC or in comments here).
