I love the solo aspect of this game. But there's only one solo scenario. I've beaten a few "group" adventures in solo play, but at some level they're becoming just a bit too hard for that. So I've started using Ally cards. It's fun and it works well.

A few guidelines/clarifications on how I play/balance this:
- As a rule of thumb, 2 Allies will generally replace 1 Player.
- You do not get Treasure from monsters killed by Allies (only the monsters killed by your Hero)
- Healing Surges can be used to "revive" allies, who then are placed on the same tile as your Hero. This can be done at the start of your Hero phase only.

Any thoughts?
Any of you mind giving it "a spin" too?
(Oh....and any new Solo adventures you guys devised?)

I'm up for giving that a spin... I'll let you know when I get a chance to do it.

My wife and I played last night with 1 ally each. She thought it was too easy and since we had gotten trounced by the same scenario the night before, it did seem a bit easier. I would be willing to say that the allies are an excellent tool to add for a game with low player count but it may take a bit of trial and error to determine how many to add.

I think they are worth a bit more than 50% of a regular hero, perhaps more like 70%. Again, this could be due to many factors not to mention only having one play with the allies.

I will definitely be playing with them next time we play without the game group over or if i play more solo.

Do you have all 3 games in the system? I've recently finished creating/playtesting a pretty big campaign variant but it needs all 3 games. Will post it as soon as I have time.

adventure 7 you can play solo. I aways play that scenario when i play solo. Easy to setup, pre-defined dungeon and so and on.
I play with one hero and one ally with the fissures with 3 hp each.
I can still win the game without spending healing surges. I play as Alissa or Cat-Brie with Buenor or Jarlax as ally.
Pretty easy but still fun.
