The automa factory does such a good job with their automat systems.
Glad to hear from you again, I trust everything is going OK in your neck of the woods.
Yeah, this one is really straight forward too. I just couldn't believe I pulled the only Automa card that would stop me from winning.
I here that
So ya'll, I'm playing Viticulture Solo (with this Solo Campaign) tonight and I'm feeling really good going into my final turn. My winery engine is chugging along I have all the wine/grapes I need to fill some orders and make a name for my winery. As I get ready to go into my final winter all I need to win is to have either the make wine spot or fill wine order spot open. If one or the other is blocked I could use my Grande worker and all would be well. I'm so excited, and then, I flip the Automa card. The Automa takes both the make wine and fill wine order spots! D'oh. I end up losing by one point. How quickly our plans and victory are snatched from our fingers.
This sounds great. I really would like to acquire this game.
The engine building is so great. Also, it's only about 40 minutes solo set up to tear down which is also nice.

Still haven't tried that campaign you suggested but man, the Automa sure knows how to make some clutch plays. It blocked that ONE spot that I needed multiple times. It's still my favorite game to solo (although that might change depending on how Root goes in the future).
Also, when you're doing the campaign, are you playing with all of the modules? Curious how that changes up the difficulty level. I'll be introducing the special workers to my wife in our next session. I read the descriptions for all of them and I'm excited.
Root is pretty fun solo. I'm hoping to get a game or two in during the next two weeks (although I think this Social distancing is going to last 4 weeks).
