Ash says Ash can't be killed unless another player Coordinated Fight with you this turn.

If playing solitaire, does this effect still go off (making Ash invulnerable, effectively) or is the effect ignored?

Thanks,

Ash can not be beat as a solo player. Coordinate can not be used as a solo player. There are many posts talking about tweaks users have done to incorporate the use of the keyword in solo games. As designed though its only used with 2+ players.

I just dealt my next hand, if it had a coordinate card I utilized it as though it was from another player. If I had any cards in my hand that allow me to draw cards, I used those first. Seemed to work alright.

If you're playing a solitaire game, or if you're the last player alive, and Ash is revealed, the only sure-fire way you can deal with him is to use Airlock Controls to push him back to the Complex. Keep a couple of rooms clear while you hunt The Perfect Organism and Ash will be contained.

Specific characters like Electric Prod Parker can also push Ash back to the Complex.

There is currently no way to actually fight him when you're by yourself, as Coordinate only works with another player.

There is no reason to ignore the effect, just be clever. Don't house-rule anything, or question if the designers knew what they were doing. They did. It's moments like that where we get to enjoy a mini-boss of sorts before killing off the final enemy.

I honestly find the game to be pretty easy when you play it solitaire, as you have twice as many turns to build your deck as you would in a two player game, three times as much in a three player game, etc.

If it weren't for Ash, Acid Blood Xeno's, etc, solitaire mode would be cake.
