I think the hidden information might be a problem. A solo run is great for learning the game,but I really think this game shines at two players. It's not too long, and it's tense--because you really don't know how your opponent is going to place his order tokens, or what combat cards he's holding. Poker in outer space is great!

You put let your AI opponent place 5-8 order tokens depending on the difficulty you desire. Combat require random draws for execution rounds. Pick a value like 3 material to randomly remove 2 combat cards to replace with two random upgraded combat cards during strategize token reveal.

It lends itself reasonable well to solo play for a game never designed to do so.

It's not a good solo game. Theoretically, you can make any game a solo game if you're willing to play both sides.

I recently bought FS and I am mainly a solo player of other games. I am keen to get a good set of solo rules happening for this game.

So far this is a thread not so long ago where there are some community rules being developed if you wish to use (if you have a copy of FS already/familiar with the rules).

Link below to the thread and document:
