Every homo sapiens needs an outbuilding within the curtelage of their property
Welcome...to my Shed!
I know you don't use the the MW overlay but am I right that you still cover all station spaces (4, 8) with fog/weather event tokens?
I did one playtru that way. This would mean that in the solo variant the event cubes keep laying track. The weather was nasty in my playtru but it was an interesting struggle to clear up the track enough to get to the top station.
You don't, of course, skip the Snow events on the Event track. In MW, because the Devil's Shingles need people to build in (so few) stations, it was necessary to stop the GAME building in stations - thus, events only lay track and excavate
In the end I did manage to clear the 2 rubble spaces at Summit house. The work rate was at 2. I played it that a weather event would not lay rubble because the first 2 spaces had player cubes. Is that right?
Of course, you only need to have UP TO the station excavated in order to build in it...the excavation spaces IN the Stations do not need to be cleared to build in that station.
I was invulnerable for weather events after that and the game only ended because the last piece of track was built.
