So, I just got a collection of Thunderstone - "Non-Advance" ones.
Didn't realize it's 2+ players, and I only solo play.
Advance was 1+

Can you play the original Thunderstone with Advance Solo Rules?
Is there much difference?

Many thanks

It's my understanding that Thunderstone Advance didn't significantly change the rules of the game. Some of the mechanics were streamlined, and the cards changed, but I believe the core game is the same. You should be able to play the solo rules for Advance with the original game.

There are many, many solo-variants here at BGG.
For Thunderstone (TS) e.g. :

But you always can use the rules ( this includes solo ) for Thunderstone-Advance (TSA) e.g. :

Look at page 38.

TS solo works fine and is fun.

Also try epic TS. This increases the thrill.

Concerning the adaptation of TS to TSA there exists a special document written by AEG, stored here in the vast archives of BGG. If you can’t find it, write me a PM.

IMHO TS and TSA are in the top 3 of thematic solo games.

The solo variant for classic TS was introduced in Wrath of the Elements (p. 16-17).
