Are the movements of the Canadians or the Germans such that this game could play well solo?

Thanks,

MRB

Hi Mike,

yes VR1917 can be played solo. Except the case of the first thing before set-up.

Canadian player has the advantage to secretly write down 2 hex for tunnel mines explosion (underneath the first german trench). This could destroy most of the units the german player will locate into these 2 hexes. German player is not supposed to be aware...

Excepted that, no pb to play solo.

I could fix that by determining the hexes randomly, then both the Germans and the Canadians won't know what hit them.

Thanks, kindly, for your response. I have since decided to buy it anyway, since I'm very interested in the subject. I'll keep your note in mind.

Cheers.

Waiting for it in the post. I will perhaps write my own review when it comes and I've figured it out.

Cheers,

Mike.

Hi Mike,

I am currently displaying a report of a solitaire game play there :

http://www.strategikon.info/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=4044

it's in french.

I have modified the MP giving additional cost for terrain features, i.e. all are cumulative for an exposed unit.

Conclusion : very good game. High solitaire suitability. cool

Cheers

Update:

I found the first turn so incredibly bloody that it turned me right off the game.

But out of interest for solo gameplay, I shall certainly peruse your session report. Thank you!
