This game attracts a lot of criticism but everything that makes it a poor multiplayer experience may make it good for solo. I came to board games looking for solitaire card games. I love railway / stock company games like the Francis Tresham 18xx series. Three things I like already about Express 01: this game is virtually all cards; the board is made up of cards; and the cards are multipurpose (see for example Trambahn which is a great game). If I get anywhere I'll post it here.
