Can the Invasion coop module be played solo as well? Does it play well?

Thanks!

I like elephants. I like how they swing through trees.

Controlling two characters, yes. And yes, it plays very well that way.

Cool, thanks I'll give it a shot. I like the solo scenarios, but figured I could try the Invasion module as well

What's your take on the various solo scenarios? Ever win at Veirzon? For me, Dignitary is way too easy. Veirzon.. impossible (to date). Salesman... possibly doable.

I can't remember the names, but I beat the third one just barely, and the first one far too easily. I haven't tried the second one yet.

For solo play, I do prefer to just play Invasion with two characters. Much more interesting of an experience, I think.

I've one the dignitary one fairly easily, played it once though.

Vierzon still no win; I find it hard to get the right engine going. Very luck of the draw based on the resource tiles and buildings available. But I like a good challenge and will keep on trying

Salesman, haven't played.

I love Orléans. Such a clever game. Satisfies the Euro lover in me

Much thanks for the replies. Glad to hear it's not just me who can't seem to win the Veirzon solo, but I will keep at it. I couldn't wait for TMG's version of Invasion. Yes, I needed the expansion sooner and so far it has not been a disappointment. I love the addition of three solo options. And, now, thanks to your post, I will try out a solo version of the Invasion co-op. This will give me an opportunity to learn the rules before taking it to one of my gaming group's events.

I tried the Invasion coop solo mode yesterday, and it was very interesting and engaging

The table is full of stuff though, so be prepared! I didn't win but I can see the paths to victory. Setup was long though
