Re: Premium Tokens to a good home

I have 4 sets myself, and may I say that the tokens are very nice. Seeing them on the website doesn't do them justice.

Re: Teaching the Game to newbies

The :use indicates that the :crew equipped with the :gear also has to :exert before the :gear is jettisoned, which restricts somewhat the other actions the :crew can take for the rest of the turn. And no, the :crew won't have the :social- benefit of the Babel translator during the Resource phase if ...

Re: Teaching the Game to newbies

The icons are something of a barrier, but at least these are well-designed icons. I played Fantasy Flight's Star Wars RPG for a year and still at times had to stop and think before i could decipher all the icons on their dice. And their rulebooks all use them too, which can make for difficult readin...

Re: Paying a cost in credits: can you always expend cards from your captain's deck?

Technically correct. But someone whose Captain's Deck is empty is certainly in trouble if he can't pull off a victory in the next turn or so.

Where can you order these now? They don't seem to be in the store on this site.

Re: Paying a cost in credits: can you always expend cards from your captain's deck?

The main limitation is that once the Captain's Deck is gone then you're bankrupt and out of the game.
The second limitation is that you might end up paying :credit2 or :credit3 for a :credit1 expense. If you are paying from your hand instead of the deck you can pay exact change, as it were.

Re: Reading material to flesh out the card game

"Bundle of Holding" was selling .pdfs of entire Traveller lines a few months ago. They might do it again. I bought the FFE Classic Traveller CD-ROM and have been very pleased.

Re: deckbuilding

I've bought "one of everything" and been pretty happy, with no need to buy extra decks to get 3 of everything. I can build at least 4 workable decks at a time, but dont have enough :contract to build more than that. As it's only a 4 player game anyway this isn't really a problem.

Re: Gazelle

My own basic Gazelle deck uses :contract that only need one :passenger , to fill out the deck. Stuff with high :distance Isn't really a barrier to the Gazelle, so you can use "Reach for the Stars" or "Home One Last Time" much more easily than you could in a Beowulf deck.

Re: Bounty Hunter and Safari Ships available PoD!

Thank you for releasing them together. It saves on shipping costs to order them together.
