Hi MvM lovers !

I tried to play alone with only one Yordle in order to get familiarized with rules. Does anybody know how many minions must appear when there are less than 4 players ? I see nothing about this in the rulebook…

Thank you in advance !

I don't remember anything from the rules that reduced the amount of minions that spawned.

No reduction...you just get more program cards per Yordle with less players as players always draft 4 cards each round.

There is no minion scaling to Mech count. The balance of the game is that you have a lot more control over your Mech with 2 and 3 players. Programming two cards in a turn (which both Mechs get every turn in 2 player) gives you a lot of options.

I don't suggest using one Mech, though. If playing solo, go with two Mechs.

I do not recommend playing with only 1 Yordle, as some missions will be basically impossible (Mission 2 comes to mind immidiately).

Now, I am looking forward for session report with only one Yordle!

To OP: as others have said, no scaling on minion numbers. That will provide interesting decisions in several missions.

I'll give a solo campaign a spin when our current playthrough is done.
