The Puritan Pledge contains at least 30-36 hours (34-40 for the EB Puritan Pledge) of gameplay. This figure is based on 4 players completing each Adventure once. However, there is no reason to stop at a single play, and there will still be much more to explore and enjoy.
You can find a breakdown of Adventures, Acts and Chapters later in this FAQ.Last updated:
Early Bird backers get everything from the Puritan Pledge, plus a bonus Adventure; The Right Hand of Doom, which comes with its own set of miniatures, Chapter cards, and Discovery cards.

The miniatures are a true 35mm scale (measuring from the base to eye level), however, this size in recent years is more commonly related to "Heroic" 32mm and even 28mm miniatures from various games.

Solomon Kane is very re-playable. In the co-op game you can play as different Virtues, and with different combinations of Virtues in varying player counts.
Many Chapters have different entrance points and outcomes that change the Acts every time you play. Sometimes this change is subtle, and sometimes it leads to a radically different destiny.
You will also have the option to add Nightmare Cards to your game which can tailor the difficulty for those who like even more challenge.Last updated:
Yes, there are several ways to play the game as a solo player. The first is to play all of the Virtues yourself as if you were playing a multiplayer game. The second is to play as a single Virtue but to have one-time use access to all of the other Virtues cards which are laid out face up on the table.
Finally, there is Providence play mode. Providence is our single player Virtue who was unlocked when the campaign reached $250k. Providence has her own dashboard, unique play style, abilities, and rules. She completely replaces the original 4 Virtues when used.Last updated:
An Adventure is one Of Robert E Howards’ Solomon Kane stories from start to finish. Blue Flame of Vengeance, Red Shadows, Rattle of Bones, Wings in the Night, and Death’s Black Riders are all Adventures.
As Howard's stories are of various lengths, so are his Adventures in Solomon Kane.
Each Adventure is broken down into one or more Acts. Each Act is divided into 10 Chapters and equates to a single long game session, (4-6 hours although games can be saved in the game box if your group does not have that long).
A single chapter can be either a story or a scene and can have several different variants (3A,3B,3C etc). Each variant changes the storyline based upon the player’s progress thus far and can affect your starting position in the following chapter.
A scene is like a scene in a movie. It is one of the important moments where a key fight, conversation, search, flight, pursuit, or similar takes place. These are played with miniatures on the board.
A story is a narrative link between scenes. Although the Virtues still make moves during a Story this is played off the board and is often a chance to discuss further tactics before moving on.
So, if you played a whole Act in your gaming session, you would typically play through 5-6 scenes, and interleave some story chapters between them.
Each scene chapter is like a mini-scenario.Last updated:

The shipping estimates provided cover the expected weight of the whole project including all the stretch goals we hope to unlock. These costs are based on our experience with previous campaigns, and many conversations with a wide variety of professional logistics companies. It is not Mythic Games’ intention to profit from shipping. If the final cost of shipping is lower that expected, then the saving will be passed onto backers.Last updated:
