I am waiting for my shipment to arrive with 2nd ed. Runebound and some supplements (expansions) with the intent to play the game solo.... my gaming friends are mostly wargamers and not interested in Runebound - that's okay, I like solo play sometimes.

What I didn't notice before ordering is that only the Runebound games states for 1-6 players, the expansions are 2-6.
Can the expansions be used in solo play?

My expansions are not the character deck cards but the adventure variant, challenge card, and item and ally expansions.

Next question, assuming I can play these solo, does the cards get shuffled in with the original deck from the game or played separately?

thanks

For the most part, the expansions can be used solo. Some items, encounters, etc. are trying to make interaction between players, but either take them out, or I suggest you download Mr. Skeletor's solo rules, which include rules for use of all those items and encounters in a solo game. I highly recommend it.

The one thing I really don't see working solotaire are the character class decks.

It is quite possible to play solo by pitting two (or more) characters against each other. It's often fun to see which of the two will come out on top. You can also use this to experiment with different strategies. For example, one character can take more risks and take on higher difficulty challenges sooner, while the other takes a more conservative approach. I personally don't like to play solo with just one character.

I didn't read too many good things about the character class expansions so I didn't order any of them anyway.. thanks for responding about the other supplements and their solo play.
