Hi,

what can be said about solo playability ?

Could it be managed or is it far from joy ?

Furthermore: Are there any rule out there for solitaire playing ?

Thanx in advance kiss

I'm about 3/4 done w/ a computer AI opponent (it's text based so it's intended to be played w/ the physical game). Hope to release it soon.

Can't speak to playing the game solitaire though. Given there are cards involved I imagine it would be a little difficult.

The solitaire game consists of inventing a variant that addresses the dominant British strategy. Nobody has beaten it yet.

The whole game is played with hidden cards from your hands. I cannot see how you can manage to play optimally both sides when you know the other player have a blocker against raids/ambush, or whatever. You could learn the game this way, but it won't be fun. You can join Yucata and play online though.

Solo play is doable to try and implement a counter to the HH certainly.

Wondering if you came up with a solo variant/workable solo mechanic?
