Any hope for some way of playing this solitaire? Or does the block system all but rule this out?

Would certainly appeal even more to me if you could play this solo.

You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

Yes, there is a chance for solitaire. The idea was stumbled upon by a playtester when he wanted to do some playtesting by himself. You would think that blocks would prohibit solitaire, but, much to my surprise, it actually makes it possible because of the low unit density.

Let me stress that solitaire play is on my radar, but is not past the rudimentary stage. My efforts have been on the game system and scenarios. When those are done, I am going to tackle it.

I also want to stress that the little work I've done on solitare tells me that it won't work for every scenario, but should work for many.

So, no promises, but I want to make it happen - at least in a limited form.

I think it would be a much appreciated asset.
