I'm really enjoying this game, but I have to say that perhaps I'm enjoying it the most as a solo experience. Ok admittedly, I generally just play with my 14 year old son, as the only group I get to game with probably only meets around 4/5 times a year & it has yet to be introduced to them.

So Gil, I was watching your solo play through, and I think you said you managed to beat the winning score by about 5 points in the solo version, but what's your best score & what would you consider a really good score anyway?

Ack, you're making me go through my old spreadsheets!

The highest score I got during solo testing, once the solo version was stable, was 308.

I'm sure folks have beat that number, though!

Wow, that's awesome if you don't mind me saying so.

Not sure I'll ever reach that level, but it's good to know it's possible, that and you think even higher is achievable!!

Wow, that's great Enes.

Just finished my 4th solo game proper, & achieved my best score: 283. I love the burn mechanism, but I spotted one thing I should have done differently & that would have given me another 10 viewers, so I'm getting there!

Had my first 4 player game last night, and was coasting along in 4th place (purposefully), for the first half of the game whilst I was building up resources & playing Network cards (some of the Interactive ones are brilliant), moved into a close second after season 4, then stormed into first place in season 5 extending my lead in the end game. Very satisfying...

That's awesome, Paul!

Ever try going through Season 1 without picking up a show? If I ever make an "achievements" sheet for the game like Copycat or Scythe, that would be one of them.

No, I've not Gil, but I think I'll try it on my next play. In the 4 player game above I still had one (might have been two) of my original starting shows, & it definitely makes you play & think differently!
