Loving this brilliant and lovely game! -- two quick questions:
In the solo game, when the silent player moves a token, do they flip it? I think probably not, but wanted to check.
Also, and maybe no reason to do this since the 2p game is awesome as is -- but, could you play 2 human players and a silent player? Would you just do one draw for the silent player instead of two?
The tokens do not get flipped when moved by the silent player. They're only flipped when "reeled in" (removed) from the board.
You could certainly create a variant that includes a silent player when playing a 2 player game, although you wouldn't need to. It might add to the challenge, though. I personally wouldn't, just because of how I got TROUNCED twice in a row in solo games.
