Re: Using Advanced Solutions, Inc. to look at complications you can't normally look at?

We may need to clarify the clarification. When a complication is attached to a contract automatically, you may use Advanced Solutions, Inc. to draw two additional cards. Drawing cards normally means you get to look at cards drawn, where the exception is that the auto-attached complication to a new c...

Re: Promo cards / Future expansions?

In general terms, shorter term goals are another ship pack and a solo oriented product through print on demand. Also, we do have interest in reprinting certain cards. The retail release of Rogue's Gallery and Central Supply Catalog has been impacted by pandemic, and that should circulate for a time ...

Re: Can one card with an Expense Value of 3 be used to heal two wounds and repair one damage from an upgrade?

From e-rulebook, page 10. Stage 4: In initiative order, captains may restore :wounds from :crew and/or repair :structure from :upgrade, at a cost of :credit1 per point. Captains may elect to recover some or all of the :wounds or :structure, at their discretion. Not intuitive, perhaps, and not spelle...

Re: General Discussion on Solo Play

Not sure whether it makes sense to split off a new topic, yet. There are groups of cards that are structurally bad for many solo scenarios. But, one way to think about new cards is how existing effects could be changed to be more solo friendly. Psychic Theft would be more useful in solo play if it w...

Re: Rogue's Gallery and Central Supply Catalog Announced!

Product has been printed. Product has shipped to distributor. Working with distributor on being orderable. Hope that people will be able to order soon. Pandemic has impacted timing of retail release dates, not surprisingly. Will try to give a heads up to when we think product will flow through suppl...

Gaming in 2020

2020 has been a year with something different than anything prior. Yes, Spanish Flu pandemic or the like would have similarities, and there are places in the world that had to deal with SARS, MERS, et al. But, today's world is just different in significant ways from 100 years ago and the global impa...

Playtesting First Solo Campaign

The first solo campaign cards are now available to playtesters in the restricted access playtest subforum. Why mention that in the non-playtest subforum? Maybe someone who doesn't have access wants to volunteer to be a playtester. In the past, most playtesting was focused on two-player play, with mu...

Re: Capacity Tokens

There was a point in development when we discussed whether to complete the cycle or not. We decided that we were satisfied with the current complement of advanced capability tokens. As Jeff said, there may be a reason to add the others later, but it is interesting. On a related note, :military contr...

Re: General Discussion on Solo Play

Thanks for the feedback on solo play. We were thinking a lot about how to expand the game in a way that was particularly beneficial to solo players earlier this year.
