As I mentioned in my recent post, after getting to know my latest addition to my collection playing two handed, I experimented with one of the many fan-made solo variants on BGG. I decided to go with the "Rapid Expansion" solo variant to start with (due to it's simplicity) for a quick start.
The final score was 69-63. A loss. But closer than I thought.
I'm going to say I was in the grey area with this one...
✔️Very simple run
✔️Puts pressure on you to be smart (game ramps up VPs quick)
✔️Quick play time
🤔 It sped up the "get money to buy land/VPs" element
🤔 Kinda felt like it took the fun out of purchasing kingdom cards
🤔 Left me in the grey area (not unhappy, but not satisfied either)
So overall, not a bad start to the many solo variants out there. We'll see what the next one brings soon. 😉
