Game plays as 2 player version.

Automa player - Alf

After the build/recruit phase, Alf builds the top card of the draw deck. If it is a production building, it produces 1 good.

Game ends after 10 rounds. Points scored as usual.

Easy variant 1: Alfdoes not produce goods.

Easy variant 2: Alf turns over two cards. Build the one with the lowest value good; it produces 1 good.

Hard variant 1: Alf produces 2 goods.

Hard variant 2: Alf turns over two cards. Build the one with the highest value good; it produces 1 good.

Played it a few times.

Won on easy.

Lost on noraml (24/32 then 29/31)

Lost on Easy 2.

However, I like losing at solo variants as I want to work out strategy. Its nice because it has very little housekeeping. Enjoying it atm

Seems to me that it doesn't matter whether the dummy is included because it has no impact on how well you do.

An easier variant would be to simply play the game for X rounds, without a dummy player. I just do that, playing to 11 rounds, discarding from a pile of 11 unused cards as a timer.
