I was playing solo games today and came up with a variant that adds some variety.
It works really well!


Setup

Same as in the rules for Unrest but with this little addition:

Add tiles to the 4th column.
Shuffle the 1st pass tiles and place them at the top of the 1st, 2nd and 3rd column; nothing on the 4th one.

Gameplay

Play exactly as in the rules except for these tweaks:

A. When you buy/conquer a tile, you can take any tile, as long as you pay the cost. This includes the 4th column.
Now, when you take the 3rd tile of a row (horizontally), you scrap the 4th tile also.

B. When rolling the dice for the shadow player, if the shadow player takes the 3rd tile of a row (horizontally), you scrap the 4th tile also

C. Also, if at any time the last tile in the 4th column disappears (vertically), remove all tiles from the board. Keep the 1st pass bonus tiles in place.

Interesting variation, thanks for posting! A little more to choose from, and a little more that disappear. This looks like it should work well.

On a “4”, the shadow player take the lowest valued tile in the “4” column.
