This variant will allow you to familiarize yourself with the game and beat your record by attempting various strategies.
The game's rules are identical to the 2 player game with the following exceptions:
During setup, the elements indicated on the 1 player Game Reference card (identical to the 2 player one) are placed in each bag.
At the beginning of the game and during the maintenance phase, 6 elements are drawn from each bag.
At the beginning of the game and during the maintenance phase, 4 Character cards are drawn.
At the beginning of the game, 3 "neutral" discs are placed on the fourth space (first non-grey space) of each Act.
Each day's phase 1 is not played.
The player ends their phase 2 when they choose to do so. If they've placed one or two cylinders, they score 1 Prestige point.
During the scoring of the acts of the first dress rehearsal, the player compares their position with the neutral token in Act II to determine their place. All of the neutral tokens are then moved to their eighth space.
During the scoring of the acts during the second dress rehearsal, the player compares their position with the neutral token in Act II to determine their place. Moreover, if they've drawn the objective which gives a point for each first place in the acts, they compare their position with all netural tokens to determine the points earned by the objective.
"strategic Rest" Variant (2-4 Players)
If they wish to do so, players can decide to not play the Rest phase simultaneously, but in the order of the Initiative track. Be Aware: this decision lengthens the game's duration a bit.
