There is only gameplay video about solo play.

He says solo player starts with 22 million money.So how he knows what am i missing?

There are no special solo rules. You apply the settings for one player - just like for every other player number - as described on the setup card (easy, medium or hard), otherwise everything is like the normal game (including the first player starting with 22 million).

I completely disagree with this statement. It may not be to your liking but it works very well.

Yes, there are no special rules for solo play (first player always has 22 credits) but it's still tricky without others stealing your spots etc.

Try the hard difficulty level...
You may find it a little bit more difficult.

Ok. I'm going to say there are 2 possibilities here: either you're a gaming genius, or something's a bit wrong with how you're playing.

Two rules to remember (mistakes could lead to high scores):

- the abilities of workers you need to run a corporation on the basic level (no additional workers, so only the one or two workers on the left part of the card) do NOT enhance production. Only workers on the lower part (along the line) add their bonuses.

- You can't use products that you produced during the same turn. You need to have them in the warehouse before the production step.

Some other possible errors. You only start with 4 managers. You get the fifth when you've collected 3 manager symbols on company cards.

Export contracts move left at the end of the round but gaps are not filled. You can't sell to the futures market unless you have a particular shady business card.

Hiring 1 employee takes one action. In order to get all standard employees in one round would take all 5 actions.

The temp employee is returned at the end of the round.
Your warehouse can only store: 12 power, 12 food, 12 minerals, 6 chemicals, 6 industrials and 6 machines.

So with a possible 34 actions (not including shady business cards) you're scoring an average of 25.4 points per round. I revise my opinion earlier: this is probably impossible. I'd be interested to hear from the designers the highest solo scores they saw in playtesting because even if you knew exactly what was going to come out...

I would like to know which companies you invested in. If you really did score 193 points I need to up my game.

Let me check rules;

Starting game with 4 manager : yes i started with four manager but in first round i grabbed 3 point manager tag so i started second round with 5 manager.

Hiring 1 employee takes one action. In order to get all standard employees in one round would take all 5 actions; Done right.

i did not use temp employee.

the abilities of workers you need to run a corporation on the basic level (no additional workers, so only the one or two workers on the left part of the card) do NOT enhance production. Only workers on the lower part (along the line) add their bonuses; Yes i know that.i only add bottom site at the card to enchants production.

You can't use products that you produced during the same turn. You need to have them in the warehouse before the production step; Done right

Your warehouse can only store: 12 power, 12 food, 12 minerals, 6 chemicals, 6 industrials and 6 machines; on my first try i did wrong at the start but second game played truly.

Export contracts move left at the end of the round but gaps are not filled. You can't sell to the futures market unless you have a particular shady business card; yes i know it.


i think i played truly or i missed something.

i am not genious for sure

lol that's a crazy high score indeed!

My first play was solo easy, had some trouble in first rounds but managed to win with 143 pts.

Second play was solo medium, had some trouble in first rounds and then I got in SERIOUS trouble and Axia economy crashed at the end of round 6.

So yeah the game is still quite challenging for me! I'm considering though the possibility to randomly block some spaces each turn just to create a dummy player that makes it more difficult when playing solo.

I'm not sure what you meant by this. Did you acquire companies showing three manager icons in the first turn? This would require buying at least two companies, since there are at most two manager icons on a company. That would cost at least 18 of your 22 starting credits (Trains and a Bank), leaving a little money to buy energy to power them. You'd also need to take the correct type of employee with your final manager, if you wanted to run one of them.

On the other hand, you could just buy the companies to get your manager for round two, without being able to run them.

Without Trains present, you'd need both level 1 Banks, or else a loan and a Heavy Industry with Trains or a Bank, again without being able to run the companies.

It looks like a lucky start and/or a willingness to take a hit in the first round to get that fifth manager for round 2. I guess it must have paid off though.

Enes,

I have to agree with the others, that the score you mentioned is CRAZY!!! surprisesurprise

I can't say it is impossible for sure, but you must be very experienced in Crisis to get that score in high difficulty level (or a very good player in general).
I can assure you that the numbers in high difficulty are VERY VERY tight. Even me and Sotiris cannot win most of the times

i obsessed with that.i am trying to find my bug.surely i am a decent player

i checked every video gameplay.

i have a question.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=86wcuK7OTDw

time 13:56
i dropped this massage.
Round 7 you placed 2 manager on export place.But rules says "Unlike every other location on the board only one manager per player may be placed here".in this case we place one manager but we can export as many products as we can. right?

Right, right?


Another challange accepted!

Yes, you only need one manager there to export as many products as you want (and can fulfill contracts).

Well, you can choose to fulfill export contracts or to sell to the black market (up to 4 units of each resource type in a round).

I think you need to record the game. Photos are not going to be able to capture your genius adequately. That being said, I think there is something wrong here.

So earlier I played my 2nd and 3rd solo games, 10th and 11th games overall, and on hard difficulty for the first time. 1st game the economy crashed end of round 4. I couldn't get anything going and lost heavily. I reset the board and managed to win the 2nd game, totalling 159 points (including money bonus). Wow was it tough!

Enes,

You are hitting really crazy scores!!!
Do you perform multiple productions per round, or use the same employee to operate different buildings in the same round?
