A taste of Solo Mode and final voting for the 20 Most Anticipated Board Games of 2019!

Posted by Tabula Games (Creator)

Solo Mode overview

Hello everyone! After doing a lot of play testing we decided to explain a bit more how the Solo mode we unlocked during the campaign is going to work! 

In this game mode you will represent House Volarees and you will be in charge of defending your three cities by the threat of the ferocious Volfyirion all by yourself. 

The dragon is on a rampage and you will need to keep a cool head to defeat your vicious opponent at its worst. Are you ready to start an exhausting battle against the mighty dragon on your own? The fate of your cities depends on you!

One of the characteristics of the solo play is that the set up is similar to the standard game. Your three cities needs to have different values as in the 1 vs 1 mode, but in addition you need to remove from the game the cards that contain a "Move Volfyirion" icon, all the Perk cards, all Ploy cards and both Saboteur cards.

Your goal is to defeat Volfyirion, and you can do this either by spending 16 Knowledge points to subjugate it or spending 16 Battle points to defeat the beast. Either path you decide to pursue will result in winning the game.

A peculiarity of this mode is the presence of a new pile in your Playing area: the Rage Pile, which is formed during your turn. This pile is created drawing cards from your Asset Deck when certain conditions are met, like the entrance in game of a Wonder Card or the start of a new turn.

At the end of each turn, Volfyirion will make its move and the kind of cards that form the Rage Pile will decide what kind of actions it will perform. 

If you counter its actions carefully, you will be able to put it back on its lair and save your cities from its rage.

We don't want to reveal too much details yet, but we can assure that Volfyirion will be hard to defeat making this mode really challenging! Anyhow, soon we will share the Solo Mode complete rules with all of you, so stay tuned

      I hope its really challenging, as easy games tend to get boring after the 1st/2nd playthrough.

      I pledged for solo play only. I hope there will be a easy/normal mode too and not just a very hard/unfair challenging mode thats too frustrating to play.

      May I suggest to change Solo rulebook cover, so that 1-player icon doesn't block the beautiful art? :)
