So I bought the core set for me and my friend to try out and I have a few questions and queries that I need some help with.
1) I've counted all the cards in the deck and they do come up to the number printed in the instruction (165). However in Miskatonic U. deck there is only 19 cards and in the Agency deck there is 21 cards.
All the other decks have 20 cards. The two neutral packs also come up to only 7 cards.
This seems to be a problem to me as the instructions state for the first time play to simply mix two factions together, with one of the neutral packs each to get a deck. Yet the manual later states that a "legal deck" is 50 cards minimum.
Therefore even with 2 factions of 20 cards each you will be short of 50 by 3.
More so, if the Miskatonic U and Agency factions are in play, one player could have more cards than the other.
Is this a problem or am I seeing a problem where non-exist? lol
3) There is one "Conspiracy" card in the core set? If following the first game rules, or just in general playing with just the core set between two people, who gets the card?
4) Some of the cards have next to their names 2 black symbols of the faction the cards are from, to the left of the name that is. The Undercover Security card from the Agency is an example of one of these cards. What do these symbols mean?
5) We are just casual players and are unsure of expanding the core set. Do you think it works just sharing the deck, mixing different factions each game, developing favourites out of what we have? I know this question is very general.
Thanks for any help!
