I played the solo variant seven times today, and every time I've been able to beat the dummy player by 20 points or more with a simple strategy. I allow the dummy player to get way ahead of me on the # 2, 3, or 4 cards, and then I use the swap power on the #5 card to reverse my position with the dummy.

I tried to give the dummy an advantage by moving it the number of spaces of his roll, for example, 6 spaces if he rolls a 6.

I am trying to think of another mechanism to balance this more. Perhaps if I rolled twice for the dummy, once to determine the Order Die and then a second time to determine the number of spaces moved. Or perhaps if the dummy's roll became locked when it's my turn again to roll.

If anyone has thought about this, I'd be interested in your ideas.
