Did you realize that the game should last 20 minutes per player? While that should work well with 2-5 players the game may take longer in the solo play. Therefore, I use a variant with the half card deck if I want to do a fast solo play:

- Sort out all planets with the crosshair at the top edge
- Sort out all spaceships with the crosshair at the bottom edge
- Shuffle the rest of the planets and spaceships and play with them
- The middle symbol matches always now but still counts as a criterion

This way you also create two solo playable card decks … just in case you want to play solo with someone together.

Very good idea! I did my first solo play to get to know the rules - but it took veeeeery long.

It surely needs one or two games to understand what to focus on. But it was fun.

Thank you for creating this game!

Thanks for posting this.
I played a few turns of a two player game to get the hang of the rules and then I started the "original" solo game. I actually had to stop half way, because it was getting late and I still had a long way to go.

This variant will maker things easier.
