It's a good experience solo. I find the general puzzle rewarding, I liked mitigating the three pacing mechanics (yout score, and the 2 cultist groups). I dont know anything solo that's got a similar vein, it's got great balance. There's also a couple of variants that make it easier or harder.

I helped playtest the solo module, but I wouldn't consider myself a well versed solo boardgamer. Having said that I certainly revisit this one, If you tend to like a bit of push your luck (from the tiles) with mitigation (playing special actions to manipulate the tiles) and enjoy know how an automata is going to behave, you'll probably enjoy it.

Also, it's an easy automa, no fiddly flow chats, easy to memorize.

Have you see Both Sides of the Table's review?

thanks for your answer, Tom. i didn't know the link. it's very interesting. just now, i'm convinced to purchase the game.

i'm veteran solo player. but in my "travel", i started with heavy games and wargames, and slowly (with aging) i'm moving about more light solo games. i think (seen the solo playthrough video) Carcosa is not a light game, but it's ok by me. i hope so.

I've not played any solo wargames, other than ottoman sunset (if that counts) and similar lighter states of siege games. I wouldn't rate Carcosa as heavy, but there are some short algorithms to manage and predict moves from. It's hard to find a closer omparison and at least the setup time is quick!
