I hear that this is based on Descent second edition (of which I have no interest because of the fantasy theme), so I've never played that one solo to experiment with the various variants.

To those who have, which is the best and most satisfying that could be easily adapted to Imperial Assault?

Thanks!

I'd not give much about D2. It is not really based on D2. It takes the few good bits D2 has and a lot of things also from Descent: Journeys into the Dark (1st Edition) and thus it is not as easy to apply.

I'd say you can learn and play the game fine, but due to hidden information being more prominent in this game, you will be your worst enemy.

I suggest the following: Simply play 2 heroes vs 1 IP and then if the heroes lose too much yield them more cash (cash like if played with 4 heroes) or reduce the threat increase on the campaign sheet a bit. Try to go for 50:50 wins and then you should have a close final all the time.

or... get one friend and play 1v1

I am definitely interested in any solo-play (or co-op) variants.

But I'll admit I opened this thread expecting to see alternate rules for a droid and a smuggler.

Redjak's Automated Overlord Variant is the best D2 solo/co-op variant so far.

If someone can provide a good solitaire rule, I'm going to buy this game!



Thanks!

I played a mission using Nerdooks (then RedJaks) D6 variant, which is really simple and requires a little interpretation of what to do. But - worked a treat! This is still not a true experience versus an AI, but it works well and let me play.

Now to paint the figures...
