Hey doods.

I thought that this game was incredibly hard after my first couple sessions (about 7). Likely nearly impossibly hard.

I am playing solo as my group is not yet ready to join so I am playing one level up like the rules suggest. But it was after I had done scenarios 1,2,3,8,70,6,5 before I realized my mistake.

I was calculating difficulty based off of average lvl of characters rounded up + 1 (for solo) instead of average lvl divided by 2 + 1. This means that the last scenario I did (and failed tremendously) was a lvl 5 scenario when I should have been doing lvl 3.

I redid the scenario at lvl 3 and I wouldn't say that it was easy, but each character had 4or5 cards left when I finished.

Not important but I wanted to share with someone.

When you play solo you don't raise the difficult level of the scenario, you just increase the monster and trap level by 1. All the other (eg. rewards) stay the same (average level of characters divided by two rounded up).

Hahaha, I did exactly the same mistake.

I then had to play several games on easy, because my characters leveled up, which increased the difficulty of the game, but I had no traits to counter it as I was loosing one game after another.
