Played this solo against my "robot" solitaire opponent today.

I won 5-2 as the Romans when the Robot played a run of sub-optimal cards and 5-1 as the Slaves (as expected:) ).

I was lucky enough to get a Leader kill in each battle but the lop-sided mix of unit types hinders the Robot player a bit in this scenario.

Sounds interesting. How does your "robot" player work?

Well, it's not entirely automatic but this is what I have now to enable me to play one side when I play solitaire.

On the Robot's turn.
  • Flip the top card to be the Robot's play for the turn
    • If it's for an empty section, or a Tactics card that cannot be used, discard it and flip the next card which the Robot must play.
    • If the card is First Strike set it aside for the Robot to use later and flip the next card.
  • If the card is a section card and the Robot's side has a hand of at least one less card than you roll 1 "I am Spartacus" die to generate an extra order for the Robot that can be used in any section.
  • Perform the best moves and attacks you can for the Robot.

First Strike
While the Robot has a First Strike card set aside you must check to see if it will use it whenever you make a close combat attack.
  • Flip the top card into the discard pile. If the test card is a section card then the Robot will play First Strike.
  • In addition, if the test card is I am Spartacus then re-shuffle the deck
Victory
[Optional] If there are any objectives for your side then you must claim at least one for victory. The Robot does not have to do the same.

5-0 win for the slaves. Both players had bad and mostly useless cards but slaves managed to capitalize on going first and killing Varinius on the first turn. not long after that Glaber died as well (an error on Roman player's end where he didn't save him in time)..from then on, Roman position deteriorated fast.
