Troyes has sat on my shelf for several years without play. When I first got it I played a handful of games before shelving it dissatisfied.
I've been searching for solo variants givig me an opportunity to re-evaluate a lot of games. Troyes solo play gave me an excuse to play.
I am looking back and thinking to myself oh my! "How did I ever shelf this game". There is a lot of depth and cut throat interaction. Every turn has meaningful decisions and no opportunity to maximize point differential should be over looked.
With every play I'm noting additional strategies for the future.
I sincerely can't believe how much I undervalued this game. I have jumped my ranking from 7 to 9.
Are you playing a solo fan variant?
