How well does this work solo?

I just finished two solo games of this in the past week or so. It plays very well as a solitaire effort.

My system for determining initiative is to deal out the Action cards to both sides, then assigning a value of 1 to 5, going from left to right, to the cards in the order they were dealt. Roll a die for both sides (re-roll sixes) and determine which Action Card is played by each side.

The solo game creates some great narratives. Enjoy!

Thanks. Anything in particular that might complicate solo play like agenda cards, reaction cards, etc.

There are no "reaction" cards, but some of the event cards don't take effect immediately upon being drawn, but can be held in one's hand and played later. I don't find this complicates solo play unnecessarily, however. Just play them for either side at the optimum time.
