I finally got in a solo game of Tiny Epic Tactics. I should start by saying I'm really excited to play this with other people.
Overall I thought the solo game was okay. I'm sure I did some things wrong so maybe it'll move up in future plays but I can tell the strength of this game is in multiplayer. Some quick pros and cons.
Pros: Quick and easy to set up and tear down (about 35 minutes from set up to putting the game away). It was wicked easy to play one handed (holding a 5 month old). The solo cards are pretty easy to run and aren't confusing. I did get to have a semi feel of Final Fantasy Tactics.
Cons: I can see the solo mode getting old and dry fast. You have the same objective each time. I also don't love that the crystals you are chasing are always in the same dungeons. I wish it was more random. I think this con is just for the game as a whole. Many of the character abilities (and I've seen people asking a lot of clarifying questions on BGG) don't make sense just in an of themselves. This slows the game a bit as you try to figure it out (hoping you'd get it right).
Overall: I will definitely play solo again but it won't be at the top of my solo list. But I know I'm gonna have a blast multiplayer.
Anyone else have a chance to play either mode?
