Subject: Solo play too much easy? rss

I bought the game two days ago and I played solo two times. I won 276 and 307 so I'm a little worried: is it too much easy? Maybe was I lucky with the perfect card combos?
Do you think the Executives expansion will make the game more tough?

Thanks for feedbacks!

That’s a really really high score. I hate to be “that guy” but there might be a rule you’ve played wrong?

I don't know. I watched several playthroughs (Ant lab games, Slickerdrip, etc), but I found nothing wrong. To make the game more unpredictable, during the Burning action, I use a die because I don't like to know which cards will be removed.
I'll try to read the rules book again and I hope you are "that guy"

I think the solo play is not very difficult. I won on my second solo game and scored over 300 on my third.

If you're finding it too easy, change your target score. Perhaps 300 is a better target! Executives will make solo play easier; I regret not making 300 the target score when playing with that expansion.

Thank you for your answer, miss Gil. I'll do as you say

I understand the rules, but how do you win?

Would you change the targets for the individual rounds? And, if so, how?

I can't answer that without playtesting, but my gut hunch would be not to.

I'm embarassed to say, because it's so foolish: I was playing 6 rounds instead of 5. blush

Yes, it's true but now the game is more challenging! Yesterday I scored 287 points using Mrs. Beeb and I had a lot of fun!
