Premium Tokens to a good home

I have 6 complete sets of the round Premium Tokens. And one more set that is missing 1 :starops and 1 :underworld , and has 1 extra :psionic . Just to be clear, 7 sets total. 6 complete and 1 with two missing and an extra. All are in excellent condition. I’m asking $25 for the whole lot which includ...

Re: A Solo Deck?

Ideally a mini-deck would likely be 12 cards really. 4 cards with 3 copies each, if there were some Adventure cards there would be 2 each of those. The 11 is because these mini-decks included a :ship . Maybe the solo deck would have a :ship but I'm not looking for that personally. I'd just like to s...

A Solo Deck?

I'm actually curious about the community's feel about a Solo Deck. I'd like to see one since I nearly always play solo when I play Traveller (and really any game these days). So not just a simple Yes or no on this poll.

Updated Traveller DB!!

Big shout out to Warfgn for doing some really fantastic updates on the Traveller DB . Fixing several errors on cards in the DB to match the real cards and also some new searching options for subtypes on cards. Which means that for :upgrade, :connection and :gear you can now search for their subtype...

Re: Solo Card Ideas - Comments please!

Anyway, when it comes to thinking of specific cards rather than a set, I'm not sure how much people are looking for the cards to drive a different experience than what is possible or just more options within the current experience. Totally understand. I'm just looking at the cards and when I see at...

Re: Solo Card Ideas - Comments please!

No Opponent also means the race is only with you running out of cards before hitting 20 :vp. Roger that! Playing "The Cost of doing business" really puts you under pressure. This is supposed to be a time-pressure type scenario, but one work around people have used is to spend a few turns to "build ...

Re: Solo Card Ideas - Comments please!

No Opponent also means the race is only with you running out of cards before hitting 20 :vp. Roger that! Playing "The Cost of doing business" really puts you under pressure. A variation on that could be if you aren't actively pursuing a :contract you have to discard some number of cards (2? 5?) eit...

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 presentation of the icons definitely isn't ideal for everyone, and can be a challenge for the new player experience. When I demo Traveller, I explain the icons as a picture matching game. Rather than worry about what each one means. This works pretty well, though it is less effective for the ic...

Re: Teaching the Game to newbies

I, for one, don't see this is an issue at all. Yes, it will take a bit of time to learn the iconography, just like learning what road signs mean when you learn how to drive. It's just a part of the process. After two or three reads of the rule book, I found that the icons became second nature. I wa...
