Some skills, like "motivation" have effects that depend on the player having "the least Experience".

Do you have "the least Experience" if tied with another player?

(I think the answer is no, because the symbol on the skill token is "less than" rather than "less than or equal to", but that distinction may not have been intentional).

In Mage Knight, you don't get the Motivation bonus when tied. Since it sounds like this is the same thing, I would guess that carries over.

This question has come up before, and the ruling, IIRC, was no, in solo or multiplayer, you do not get the bonus if tied.

Space is cold, silent, and uncaring.

Could you please link a source?

FWIW, the MK FAQ is clear that you DO get the bonus in solo.

PS This is semantics, but if the condition is "lower experience than all other players" (as opposed to "lower than or equal to"), then technically you do get it in solo, but not if tied in multiplayer. Note that the symbol on the skill token is "<" and not "<="

He may be referring to this thread:
https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1606533/motivation-enterpri...
however the opinion there was just like you said, the bonus is received when playing solo.

Hmmm...maybe my memory is failing. Sorry. But I could swear I saw an answer that you don't get the bonus on solo.
