Hi. I played two game with my girlfriend and it was really nice. We will soon player the advanced mode, they seems cool too.
1) Do you plan to add the solo mode to bga ?
2) An other question : i haven't yet played to the advanced mode, but by reading the rules, doesn't the green and desert planet better than other planet type ? (since with forest you get 2 points per forest and with desert you can transform one tile each turn into desert).
edit : now i am thinking, since other also get point from forest, this means they have more chance to choose a forest tiles, hence giving you less forest tile making it more balanced ? But then the desert planet still seems better than other.
edit : just played an advanced game with my girlfriend and it's an even better game ! It's very nicely designed, you can have a simple game first to get the mechanics, then add the news rules which make the game more tricky and funnier !
