Re: 2020 Tournaments

I have in mind what I think of with competitive. Niche CCGs still had things like continental championships or world championships. There always those who prefer more competitive play to less competitive play in card game communities I've belonged to. What isn't so clear is who is trying to play com...

2020 Tournaments

We've received feedback that there's interest in tournaments, especially at conventions such as Origins and Gen Con. We are still entering event submissions for those two conventions and will be done before the end of the month, though DunDraCon is our priority this weekend. What I'm looking for is ...

Re: Where are the UK players hiding?

What can we do to help and/or what are the biggest challenges with seeing more play in the UK? I would imagine awareness, product cost/support, our helping with coordination of events, difficulty marketing to various audiences, and a host of others. We would like to help in those areas where it's se...

Crew Control 2020

So, may have noticed that there are both more ways to remove crew and to defend them with Rogue's Gallery and Central Supply Catalog. Thoughts on whether the metagame after these are in people's hands will be more crewkilly or less crewkilly? I posted a deck over on www.travellerdb.com that is one w...

Just to be sure that I understand this correctly, the cost to satisfy Cryptic Rider in this case would be 4; that's 3 for the base cancellation cost, +2 for Cryptic Rider, -1 for An Expedient Arrangement. Is this correct?
Correct.

Re: Card clarifications

Not going to be the most useful answer as I'm covering for people who know more about these things than I today. We will look into what is required to make it easier for people to get full play sets of all non-promotional cards. For promotional cards, we are hoping they get used for promotional purp...

Re: download of boxes for decks in the boxed set

Re: Quality issue

Thanks for the info.

Can you let us know where you acquired the Aliens of the Imperium?

Were you able to get a replacement/refund?

Give us a bit to check into things. This time of year is a bit weird for us.

Re: First Play Questions

I was also wondering if other people found that Crew were pretty important? On our play through I had my opponent reshuffle their deck and make sure they got some crew. By the time they had any crew, I already had 10 victory points and there was really no catching up. While this is only one play th...

Re: First Play Questions

In the 2-player starter set - is piracy a viable strategy? (Beowulf/Scout) - In an early turn could you attack the other player's ship and if they can't immediately pay the expense to cover the damage, are they bankrupt? Thus you need to always keep cards in reserve if anyone is involved in piracy?...
