Just recently bought this game and am really enjoying it solo.
However, one of the building cards seems much more powerful, especially given the price, compared to the others. It's the 'Alsterhaus' which gives one point for every cube in storage. This seems very powerful, but when you consider it only costs 14 coins, it seems really overpowered. It seems fairly common to have 15-20 goods remaining in storage at the end of the game.
The Trading House gives 2 points per type of food (max 16 pts, and usually less) and the Church gives 12 points, but both of these cost 20 coins.

Anyone have any opinions on this?

I'm a quitter. I come from a long line of quitters. It's amazing I'm here at all.

I can feel bits of my brain falling away like wet cake.

Yup.

Corrected "Alsterhaus" card is up.

Good to know. Also found this card to on my first game. Wound up with over a hundred points while my opponent only had about 60. Felt rather unbalanced.
