Default Deluxe Illuminati solitaire rules

What do you do when you can't find anyone who'll admit to conspiring against you? All the solo rules I could find were for INWO.

Setup is the same as normal. Add the blank cards to both decks. If you draw a blank Illuminati card, you can choose which Illuminati to play. If you draw a blank for the initial uncontrolled groups, there will be one fewer group than normal.

Attacks on an uncontrolled group subtract the defender's power+transferable power from the target roll; this represents other Illuminati interfering with the attack, and can be cancelled by making a privileged attack. If the groups power total is zero, subtract the group's income from the target roll.

If you draw the special Secrets Man Was Not Meant To Know, or a blank, you lose. Otherwise, it's pretty easy to win. To raise the difficulty, also subtract the group's income from the target roll.

The basic goal is 14 groups; special goals are as normal.

After some playtesting, I've edited the OP to change how defense is calculated. The change from income to power makes the interference behave more like a regular game; the more powerful groups attract more attention.
