I am going to play AEON'S END this evening solo, and for my first time ever playing this game. I'll probably use two characters. Any additional advice for starting out on this game? Recommended characters, suggested baddies, etc?

I used the recommended market and Rageborne. He's rated the easiest and was fun as a start. I went solitaire with Brama (heal) and Mist (card draw). The healing ended up being critical, but mainly because I drew the same strike card several times in a row - doing a lot of direct damage to the mages.

As a starting point, you might want to pick one mage with a defensive ability and one with offensive.

Completely randomize the market against Crooked Mask (Extinction), true solo.

LoL

More seriously though, if you didn't break the pre-set decks, go with the pre-set setup, choose your characters after reading their abilities, and pray!

And have fun, too.

Furthermore, you'll find two suggested market setups in the rulebook, page 10.

I haven't opened any of the card packs yet. Do you recommend one or the other of the suggested market setups for my first game?

There's a recommended start up scenario already within the game. It certainly helps.

Also it's not your typical Deck builder. You don't shuffle you discard deck which is the best feature IMO. That and nemesis can throw some nasty turns.

If you didn't, follow the instructions on the Stop cards and the leaflet to build your first game and you're set to go!


Crooked Mask is some hardcore mutha, and extinction rules is basically hardcore mode.

I started with the suggested pack to learn how the game goes. It is possible you will make some mistakes about some rules.
I noticed on the end of my first game and played a second game after it

While I haven't played it solo (yet), we did play with four players and I thought it was great! We're going on a quick trip this weekend, and Aeon's End is coming with my wife & me. We're hoping to play it again!

I had fun and I'm not sure I won or not. Because the first game I make some mistakes against the rules. Still it where both close games.
Later on I played a couple of Solo mage random games and I will play some more in the future.
