I went through the first 3 rooms with success. 1 and 2 are quite easy. The 3rd room was challenging and I managed to win it in the 10th round.

Now that I got to Room 4 I have following question. Spoilers alert

Spoiler (click to reveal)
On the room card, it says the following: Any time one part of a Diagram is completed, it is rotated to the next part not yet completed, keeping it in play.

Now the question here is: when I solve the first part of the diagram, there are 2 unsolved parts - left and right. Can I choose in which direction to rotate or should I use the general consensus used in the game - rotate always left?

That can change tactics a lot as you can "combine" both diagrams to suit your needs if you can move either way


Now to the side question: When playing solo, does it makes sense to hide the card, as in turning it face down, if you are actually allowed to look at the diagram any time during the game? I guess you can leave it face up while playing solo.

I played for the first time last night. I played face up since there were no opponents other than the AI. I turned counter clockwise, but I guess you could choose either way? Ultimately it is at your discretion in solo play. Maybe start with either way, and then challenge yourself more by sticking with one way (like I did). I completed it on the very last turn....phew.

That sounds like an option, but still would be interested to know how it was designed. I played it either way and I managed to finish in the round 6. Got a bit lucky with the diagrams though.

I believe (hope!) that the diagram cards should be played face up. This is a co-op room, so surely you can help each other. When playing solo with the two character cards it's not an issue - both diagrams are face up. I did play it by selecting a direction and then sticking with it, but I think one character was solving clockwise and the other was solving anti-clockwise.

Just wanted to pop in and confirm with you all that yes, either rotation is fine as it doesn't distinguish one or the other. It was designed to give you the option.

Oh and yes, face-up is fine in this one as there is no AI opponent or room rules countering it.
