I purchased Viticulture Essential Edition primarily as a game to play with my wife. However, one of the pleasant surprises for me has been the very fun Automa solo system.
I am currently working my way through the campaign as a part of a 10x10 solo challenge, but I have a question regarding level 2 of the campaign. In this level, you are only ever allowed 2 regular workers (not counting grande or temporary), but you can take the bonus actions of actions that aren't occupied by the Automa. You are also not allowed to use bonus tokens taken off the wakeup chart.
I lost this level on my first attempt, and the normal protocol would be to give myself a bonus token and play again. However, bonus tokens cannot be used at this level.
Are these "extra" bonus tokens from losing allowed? Maybe they could be cashed in if my Grande worker is being used to place on an Automa occupied spot? Part of me just wants to beat it without any help, but I wanted to clarify the intent.
My intention was that you can't use bonus action tokens at all in level 2 of the campaign - that includes the ones you get for losing.
To be honest, though, I like your suggestion of allowing the campaign bonus action tokens to be used with the grande better than I like my own rule, so I recommend going with your suggestion and ignore the rulebook on this .
