My goal with this deck was to try to mimic what other players do in a multiplayer game such as placing buildings, buying cattle cards, taking objective cards, and claiming station bonuses. I also wanted to avoid having to do any bookkeeping for the automa opponent (no money, no hand of cards, no having to think out their turn, etc). The end goal to keep it as fiddly free and simple as possible so I could focus on my own game yet still have an challenging opponent messing with things.

If you can help with some play testing to refine this, that would be greatly appreciated.

Setup:

Choose a color for the dummy player and give them a name. I call my opponent Brisco.
Select a difficult level of “easy”, “standard” or “hard” mode. I recommend “standard” for your first game. The modes will be
referenced in the details below but here’s a quick summary of the difference in setup of each mode.

Sergi Rodríguez has put together a web app you can use on your phone instead of printing out the deck. It features all three modes of play as well:
