I asked in another thread about the ability to play this solo. The theme and ideas are really intriguing but I am thinking would it be too much as a solo game? I am a wargame beginner so there is that factor.

Hey Wilky!
The game is very solo-friendly in that you can actually switch chairs and play each of the four factions individually. There is only one card per phase played from the deck, there is no card holding or hidden information. The mechanics are simple and decision making should be pretty easy. We will eventually design some solo-specific scenarios with an A.I. and offer it as a free download here and in Paper Wars.

Thanks!

Hermann

Is anyone else picking this up solely for the solo play? I would be interested in hearing others thoughts on what they are looking forward to as I have a difficult time picturing how the game plays etc. I have read the excellent articles and just need that last push over the edge to pre order.

Re: Solitaire
I preordered it with the intention to play it both solo and FTF.

I ordered it for solo play. When I got the flyer in the mail about a year ago it said that it could be played solo. Not many gamers will play a WW1 game so I hope the solo play is good....

I know this is an older thread, but I thought I would post here instead of starting a new thread.

I wanted to hear people's thoughts on the solo play.

It plays perfectly well solitaire. No hidden information, and the events and technology cards mix things up a bit.
