Is there some way to make the solo of this game easier, I MEAN 10 tasks to thwart? I hardly get 10 done in a game. Also the dice hate me.

I use half the tasks required for two players, as there's only one of you.(5 per week?)

The best way to make it easier is to lower the required number of tasks. I've found that 5 is an optimal number for solo play; you have a chance to thwart evil without making the game too easy.

Five tasks might work if you're playing a wizard. You couldn't win solo as a Druid with five (at least I can't). It also depends on how easy your map is. Start with two tasks per fortnight and just increase it from there if it seems too easy.

I to make it easier on myself set up the map with two big islands facing in a hex pattern, with the dragon lair set up in the middle, connected to two magic realms (so it's always able to get out), then I make a string of a third island moving along the top or bottom of the other two islands, also all islands are no more than 1 hex apart (so I can swim from one to the other if need be). Boats in this situation are more like motor cars zooming down the interstate. All tiles besides the above stated, are random in placement. It seems to help as with a 3 task per fortnight goal, I was able to win as a sorcerer, just held off, got my 4th level, and made teleportations back and forth... la la la.

I double the time between island flips in 1p games.
