so 1st edition shadowrift solo plays.
2nd edition will have solo rules if you don't want to just play 2 hands.

Archfiends.... can you play with 1st edition and Solo the whole thing? (not just "can" you, but does it offer a great game?)

Thanks !

Most people say Archfiends really makes Shadowrift shine.

If you can keep track of the turn phases, you can play 1st Ed the same as 2nd Ed for solo play and it works.

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/gzeievxnwnjoju5/AADcwfw_jy4D3d6Cc... has the rulebook. On page 10 there's the Solo Variant.
This functions properly for Archfiends, though a few of the Archfiend effects can be more brutal than normal.
Then again, I assume players who are trying Archfiends are specifically AFTER "more brutal," so I'm not too worried about that.

I always just played it two-handed. It's fine that way. I don't know what the special solo rules will bring to it, though I have ordered the 2nd edition and expansion. It's a great game!

Jeremy - with the Solo Variant and Archfiends, would you play that the Archfiend acts at the beginning of EACH Heroes Act step or just the 1st one?
