Just found this jewel of a game and love it! As many have remarked, at least the first encounter is super easy. Here are some rule tweaks that make me lose about 40% of the time and I rarely survive with all 4 adventurers!
Agreed! I'm really enjoying this game! Only solitaire game that I've suggested to friends.
Change fireball to "one damage to four opponents, or four damage to one opponent" This adds some life to the kobold encounter.
I'm assuming you mean Chain Lightning. Yes, it is extremely dangerous to single HP encounters, like scorpions, but is practically useless to single foe encounters like the ankheg.
Cleric can use each spell only once per encounter. This keeps you from leaving one monster barely alive while you heal the whole party.
Agreed, with this sentiment. However, I play it if you CAN kill a creature, then you have to. Many times I'm trying to heal up my entire party, but get a one (for the rogue) or a six (for the fighter) and don't get my straight.
Edited for grammatical errors.
