Recently, I've been churning out solo games before bed. I play with the curses and treasures with the exit shuffled 5 from the bottom. I've gotten used to beating it with the suggested 7 gems.

I like the idea of upping the difficulty, but I want to do it without pilling on more gems. Which expansion offers the most fun and challenge for the 1 player experience??

TBH I would not recommend this game as a solo game. This game was designed with 3+ players in mind and then they somehow modified the game to work solo, but it is clearly not the main purpose.

Now, if you want to continue and play this as solo....then Quests adds a nice twist to the game.

Quests is the best one so far. There are a selection of quest tiles that you shuffle into the deck. You can choose to add 1-3 quests depending on how hard you want it to be. Before you escape, you must find and complete the quest(s). It's quite fun and adds a bit more theme.

The illusions also comes with a quest tile as well, but the Quests expansion comes with a bunch of them.

I agree, "Escape: Quest" is the best expansion

I've played a lot solo - I really enjoy it.

I've used both Illusions and Quests. I wouldn't say one was better than the other, but I wouldn't get them both at the same time.

I do use these setup rules, however: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/933050/official-escape-s...

I agree that Quests is the better expansion.
