Maybe I missed it in the rules, but how do I play this expansion solo?

Only the setup for the event deck ist different I believe. Other than the setup cards there was nothing that talked about solo play.

That's right, it's all in the set up card. So the set up for chapter I says to read card 37 in the solo game and card 30 in the multiplayer game.

How many Assistants should we set when the solo game starts?

2 assistants in the solo game (choose randomly). However there is an event, which lets you swap an assistant with any assistant not in play. So there is not much luck involved regarding the assistants.

I've just played my first solo game of this, and I love it!

I was also looking for confirmation of the 2 assistants (I just guessed as much based on the other player counts).

I managed to just about fulfill the King's request, and now it's on to Chapter 2.

@alexP are you going to do a similar story expansion for Port Royal? I think it lends itself to it, right?

This is inspiring to me as a designer. You've managed to do so much with just a few cards.

I really love it.

Thanks! Yes, I'm also working on a "dynamic eventdeck" (thats how I call it) expansion on Port Royal. Let's wait what the publisher thinks of it.

So if I have bought one assistant, and that event comes up, I can swap it out with any assistant card (not just the other 1 in the display)? What's really the difference, just the VP on them, right?

You don't get to swap it with an already bought assistant but with an assistant in the display. Try to get one, which fits to your buildings, so you can hire him.

Oh, I misunderstood. That makes more sense. Thanks! You can hire both in a solo game, right?
