One of the games on sale during the boardgame sale at Steam.  Anyone have it?  Hows the single-player?  TIA

I have both the Android and tabletop versions of RftG with all expansions and have found the Android version to be a very faithful recreation of the tabletop game with an AI that is more than enough of a challenge (though that may be more of a comment on me). After Legion Gold (Slitherine) RftG is probably my most played Android game.

As for how good it is for single player the original tabletop game was (slightly unfairly) referred to as a single player game that you could play with friends as there really wasn't that much PvP interaction beyond keeping an eye on how well everyone else was doing in regard to VPs and potential VPs.

I have the mobile version and it's quite nice.   Lots of paths to victory but as Wolfe just mentioned,  there doesn't feel like a lot of interaction with the opponent.  It feels more like a time trial where knowing how your opponent did influences your action but mainly because you are dealt a random set of cards.  I enjoy it as a single player experience though.
