The Signature Edition includes upgraded replacement components - the player meeples are replaced with custom player meeples, the special favor boards are upgraded to dual layer boards with an inset for the upgraded special favor tiles which replace the special favor cards. The Signature Edition also comes with a cloth bag to hold the upgraded Special Favor Tiles.
We've seen the question arise on a few occasions. Is The Scarlet Pimpernel cooperative? Is it semi-cooperative? The Scarlet Pimpernel is only cooperative thematically as all players are assisting the Scarlet Pimpernel on his missions. In terms of game mechanics, each player scores victory points based only on his or her contributions - not those of their competitors.
We are currently working with the designer, Brian Kelley, to develop a solo variant for the game. Once we have completed play-testing and development, if it passes our standards we will either include it in the rules or as a downloadable PDF.
