Anyone tried the solo game like me? It's a simple exercise of maxing out your score with the most optimised moves through the 14 rounds. A score benchmark would be great as it's the same game every time. My score for the first game is 74, second game 85. No idea if that's a good or poor or average score unless we have reference with each other.

Hi, I have the game & intend to play solo before playing with the family, how long does a solo play take?

It takes me around 30mins per game. It depends on how much you think...

I was wondering about solo play. As I couldnt find rules for it, it seemed to only be against your own score. And nothing random. That leaves only a puzzle: how to best play it solo. Not very giving - for me, anyway.

I did my first game tonight and got 66 points. There doesn't seem to be much in the way of randomness, so I am curious to play it again and see if/how I can improve scores.

My wife has played this a lot - her best is 89. I've managed 85.

I got an 99. If I understood the improvement on #14 correctly i counted my 3's of hay with 1 Vp. I could have had 100 VP if I had remembered that I could have kept 1 animal in the house. I sent it to the slaughterhouse cry

That's a good score! My wife has been addicted to this and bagged a 90 last night. I've only tried once and scored 86.

Improvement #14 - isn't that just leftover stuff (wood/clay/reeds/grain) can be traded for VP at 3:1?

So improvement #14 could count as 3 grain for 1 VP?

Good job by the wife. Many fields.

Here is the final look of the 99 VP end game. Used reeds as sheep.

I've just finished my first one, and got 92 points.

I think I got the 5 players too soon. I know it's important, but in a solo game where most of the resources are safely replenished each round, maybe the soft spot is 4 players until later on.

I did get 9 fields, and the 3 biggest pastures. And was ALWAYS needing more wood.



Next time I'll try to coordinate the harvests better, so I get most points at the end. And probably try to get animals a bit earlier. I focused almost 100% on grains first (cheapest way to get food), letting the animals accumulate slowly.

》30 sheep is impossible in a solo play

14 rounds and 6 harvests makes a max. of 20 sheep

Given the lack of randomness I would assume there is a theoretical maximum score.... and once some gets there then effective the solo gam is solved ...?

The race is on
