So why is this game listed as 1-4 players on the description on the game page. Is there solo rules I'm missing. Anyone, ever tried to play solo? If so how did you do it?

I don´t think it´s listed as a solo-playable game. Where did you see that?
It´s even written on the box "2-4".

On the number of suggested players on the geek. It says Best with 1,2,3,4 players. Wondering if I missed something

But one row above that, it says: "# of Players:
2 − 4
"
Maybe there went something wrong.(it could be the default?)
I guess, you could play it for yourself, and try to beat yourself session after session by points. (as in Agricola or Le Havre)

That's what I figured. I thought someone had solo rules and I missed it. Thanks for the clarification.

Yep. I have played one game and it is demanding. At the beginning I take two blue contracts at random and chose one. Idem with green contracts. I only play ONE ROUND using my three tokens and taking one guilder when I chose one action before the previous elected action.

I did 78 VPs, three ships (20, 19 and 12 Vps) and the blue contract and green contract gave me 27 points.

What were your rules for solo play?

My rules:

- The countdown marker is placed on the first space of the Countdown
Track. I play only one lap of actions cards (when the lead Action Card reaches the Starting Space again, the game has finished).
- Government Contracts, dealt randomly, face down. Take 2 green contracts and 2 blue contracts. In this moment, choose 1 of each.
- The action selections and income is like in the normal play. (Using only my three figures.)

Sounds really good. You should post in the variant sections.
