Hi all!

There are a couple of things I'd like to clarify about the solo mode to make sure I'm playing it correctly.

- From what the rulebook says, I understand that even though solo works exactly as the 2 players coop, there are some exceptions, like having only 1 corporation card. Does that mean for example that I can have only two energy installations? Are the two corporations that I control considered as two different players in regard to any instance in the rulebook that refers to player numbers (for example, am I able to get 1 energy from RTG twice in a round or only once)?

- Not strictly solo related but: is it possible to hire a third researcher/assistant by replacing one of the two that have been previously placed on the corporation card? If yes, does the old researcher/assistant go back to the stack on the board or do you remove it from the game?

- In the rulebook this is mentioned only for the semi coop, but isn't it ok in the solo as well to end the game earlier if I manage to remove all tokens from quarters and fulfill the scenario requirements before the last cycle ends?

Thank you in advance.

I have similar questions like Claudio Coppini about the Solo mode.


- how many Energy instzallations? The biggest problem is the energy if you could only build 2 energy installations.

- how much money? in the rules is written that the first player gets 2 credits, the second 3 etc. did you get 2, 4 or 5 credits in the solo mode?

Not tried Solo, but this is answered by designer in another section, stating that each of 2 player markers you control can have 2 Energy plants ie total of 4. Go find that, I read every rules thread available.

You mean each of the corporation you control can have 2 energy installations, for a total of 4 in solo. Correct, the designer confirmed that in a separate thread.

I've been playing solo starting with 2 credits only, as I believe the starting money refers to "players" and not "corporations". Maybe I'm wrong, but at least that makes the game a little more difficult.
