When I got the game home I wanted to work through the game to know how to play when my wife was home to play. I also do not have many friends local that I can call on to play.
I found that it is fun to play it solo, like playing extreme solitaire.
Anyone else do the same?
Are you playing both sides? It's a great way to learn games, I'll agree. I find it a bit of a mind bending exercise to play well for both players the whole time though (see most of Rahdo's runthroughs and you'll see it's a common problem. ).
Have you tried this fan-made solo variant? It's a pretty fun variant, quick playing, and means you can focus on your own strategy instead of splitting your mind in two.
