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.
