As I continue to explore Red Flag Over Paris, I wanted to share a playthrough I did against the Versailles solo opponent. While never as convincing as a shrewd face to face adversary, the solitaire decision tree is cleverly structured and creates ample tension while playing.

The constant vying for control of physical and abstract spaces creates a coherent narrative as the looming crisis either blooms into civil war and bloodshed or tracks toward a peaceful solution as Versailles and the Commune battle for the hearts and minds of the myriad political dimensions.
