My wife and I love New Bedford - we got it just last week and it's been our two-player go-to since then. However, I am really unsure about the solo rules, and after having spent quite a lot of time scouring the rules forums I still feel like I don't know where to begin with my questions. The way I learn best is just seeing it played, anyhow, so my thought was to ask: are there any solo game playthrough videos out there or would someone consider making one, or would people consider sharing transcripts of some of their solo games as they play them?

Example of a transcript:


Set-up:
My opponent is Starbuck.
I take two wood, one brick and one food as starting goods.
Starbuck rolls a 1 during set-up, bringing his heading to NW.

Turn 1:
Starbuck rolls a 3, bringing his heading to East.
Following his heading, he takes the Warehouse, since he's looking for brick.

On my turn, I take 3 wood from the Forest.

... et cetera.


That's the kind of transcript I'm looking for, and the more transcripts I see, the better I think I will be able to see how it's played in general, and how some specific instances are handled, too. Thank you for any contribution!

Give the Ant Labs play through a look. They play two humans plus one A.I. Captain, so you can get a feel for how that works.

This was my thought too. Multiplayer with an AI player is exactly like solo play, but with an extra (human) player taking a turn.
