Tonight I added a rudimentary solo mode to the board game I've been working on! It's not perfect, but it's better than a generic "beat this score" mode.

I've been doing my playtesting entirely online using @screentopgg
with much success! For anyone interested, my game is at screentop.gg/@msoucy/arl-game

Of course, you can't just build robots. You also need to build up your team, recruiting new students and using their strengths to get the most done that you can!

This is it folks, yet another HUGE reason to switch to @Minetest
#Minetest is minecraft equivalent that respects your freedom.
#Minecraft is a proprietary software, which in itself was already a reason to not play it and avoid it, but if you wanted to play it anyway for some reason, at least your account was separated from the big fish #microsoft and their data base. Another push for Microsoft's monopoly.
