Hi folks and welcome to the second edition of my Solo Mono Challenge. This time players shouldn't be shy of water, as they're confronted with some of the meanest enemies in this game so far:
Yes, this time we're gonna meet the Watcher in the Water. The scenario will be played as usual. There's one slight rule change to make the game a bit easier (and hopefully more interesting):
Everytime a player defeats a tentacle enemy during the combat phase, they can choose one of the following:
1) A hero gets an extra resource.
2) The player adds one progress token on any location.
3) The player reduces their threat level by 1.
4) During stage 1 only: the player may peek at the top card of the encounter deck.
Scoring system and tournament rules:
The players have three attempts for each of the four spheres. After each approach the players have to replace one of their heroes. A hero that was replaced can not be used again. A hero that was a replacement can not be replaced. Example:
Rich builds a tactics deck with Boromir, Beregond and Gimli. After the first attempt, he replaces Gimli with Elladan, as he likes the art of that card very much. In his third attempt he is not allowed to bring Gimli back into play, and he can not replace Elladan. He thus chooses to replace Boromir with Thalin.
Each victory scores 1 point. The player with the most points wins the challenge. In case of a tie the player with the highest starting threat of all his hero combos wins.
Each deck may only contain cards from the chosen sphere plus any neutral cards.
The deadline is May 31th, 8 pm CET.
Once a player has started his first game, he is not able to start the challenge anew. This means the players have only one attempt to approach this tournament.
