Looking for some clarification: is there any use for Lasso when playing solo? My understanding of the card is that it essentially allows you to play two people in one turn, potentially avoiding losing needed resources to an opposing player. Playing solo, however... what is its use, if any? You're taking all the turns yourself, after all.

You're correct. There is no value in playing it. Unless, for a particularly obscure reason (contributions, anyone?), you want to get rid of 1 Reed.

Cheap Braggart Improvement as well. Don't mind me, I didn't think about player count limitation on the card.

Ah, hadn't considered that.

When I'm playing solo games with my own set, I usually replace any minors that can't possibly do anything in that game.

Could be useful when trying to play some improvements (Carp Pond, Beehive, etc) that require enough improvements played.
Such situation will arise a lot more in FOTM games.
