My first "official" solo game with my physical copy of Ophir was with the Navigator! The market modifiers were 0 / -1 / +1 with the Temple Merchant in the third space.

It was a tense and tricky start with the Market so close to the Temple. The Temple Ship got an early gold, but it was mostly smooth sailing from there. The Navigator ability turned out to be quite helpful, and I was able to block the Temple Ship out of his final contribution. The final score was 64VP to 40VP for a final score of 24VP. See if you can beat it!

Note: On this layout, the Temple Ship only picks up one metal per cycle, though it stops at the Metals hex twice. The Temple Ship would only pick up a second metal if it were to Anchor.

Special thanks to Jacob Peck for suggesting to put the extra Market and Temple tokens on the player boards for the Rival Ship and Temple Ship!

Thanks for the mention!

I actually played a solo game earlier today -- I was the Chancellor. Pretty bad loss -- ended up with -10 VP.

Love this game.

Hi Jeff. You can find the solo rules in the Promo Rules, which can be downloaded here on BGG.
