Tough. And IMHO it would lose the tension. This should be easy to find an opponent for though.

I taught myself the game when it first came out by playing it solo, and I have to say I enjoyed it.

Each turn, I looked at the game sitiation from the side I was playing, and tried to decide what would be best to do just based on the current board position and the strategy cards in that faction's hand. I had to do the same with the battle cards - i.e. I ignored the knowledge I had of the other faction's cards and just concentrated on the cards in the hand I was currently looking at.

It worked as a way of learning the game and I enjoyed 4 or 5 games this way, but it is certainly better with an opponent.

An excellent way to play many wargames. I do this all the time and have enjoyed H:RvC very much that way. So far every wargame that someone told me I couldn't play or enjoy solo has been great.

I tried Sword of Rome solo once, only lasted 1 Turn. It was fun, but splitting my personality four-ways was hard...
