Solo rules & more impressions of IUNU

18 likes

Greetings, LudiCrats!

We finally have the...

Solo rules!

After some playtesting, we are ready to show you the solo rules for IUNU, as requested. We will continue to playtest them, and they may change, but we are at a place where we can announce them.

Most normal gameplay rules are in effect in the solo game, but Debens are a more strategic resource and there is a slight fog-of-war due to the cards removed at the beginning.

We encourage you to test the rules on Tabletopia as well - all you have to change is not place the Forum cards in a circle. We found that placing them on another player's dynasty area works the best.

You may find the rules here. Please download them, as they may not display properly if you look at them through your browser window.

We do not yet know if we will be able to have them inside the box, but if we do not, we will make sure to make a high-resolution PDF available for you.

More impressions of IUNU

In other news, thanks to Chris Marling, a game designer and board game blogger, we were able to show off IUNU at the UK Game Expo! This resulted in some nice coverage:

THE GAME PIT

"Fantastic interesting art ... the gameplay was interesting every turn ... looks good and plays well."

"This was a fantastic game, it is way deeper than anything of its kind has any right to be ... I thoroughly enjoyed it ... probably the best game I played at the [UK] Game Expo."

CREAKING SHELVES

"There are a number of different ways to approach this game, the interaction is at a very good level, and the minimalist graphical style, even in prototype form, is a treat. Well worth checking out!"

Thanks so much for your continued support. As patrons of indie board game creation, you validate the efforts of creators like Todd and everyone else in the LudiCreations team.

We hope to be bringing you many more of the games in the Sanders Select Series that we have planned!

And speaking of plans, you can see more of what is coming up on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/LudiCreations

      Thanks to all backers for their patience while we playtested the solo rules. I am known on BGG for my solo games and i wanted to give players a good solo experience that wasn't merely get the highest score possible.

      When designing a solo AI, I like to create a combination of strategies that the AI will use. The aggregate of those separate actions cause the AI to be stronger overall when playing against it.
