I've played only a few solo games and while I've beat the AI each time I can't help but feel I'm doing something wrong. Are contact tokens supposed to be so scarce that the max of any given type you'll typically get per round is between 3 and 5? Usually 3 or less though. I can't seem to find any other way of building more than one new location per round (not the brick upgrade or w/e its called). Maybe building 2 new locations if they're a 1 and 2 distance.

Just want to ensure this is the case and I'm not missing something. I don't mind the scarcity, it actually makes choosing which locations to build much more important and tense. Thanks!

3-5 sounds right. Working as intended.

Aye, you can only use your conversion once per turn (well for all factions except one), so your access to lots of tokens of any specific type is limited.

It makes how to spend them a deliciously interesting decision.

Good, that's what I was hoping. Makes the decisions more important than in IS where you can build everything.
