On one of the forums, you had mentioned that you were developing a solo variant of this game? Did this come to pass?

Hi!
I was fiddling around with a soloversion a while in the development process but it did not work out well. A reasonable part of this game is the fact that you try to make a decision on what the other players might do and how they chose to play affects you more or less allways. That part of the game gets lost in a soloversion. You could draw cards at random, allmost like simulating other players but still, in the multiplayer game people do choices and sometimes you can be pretty shure what they will do or want to do.
And the scoring mechanism is based on many players and I couldn't find a way to work that out in a fun way in a solo version.

But lately I've been messing around with a gameidea for a sologame that I wrote about here: Solo Dice Game with modular board

Regards
Mattias
