Hi new on the forum :) ive bought the game about a year ago i think, played the game about 4 times, and im playing again this month... love the game, but i still find that our games are somewhat clumsy, but it aint no big deal, i allways play with mostly the same people (the few people i want to play a board game at this length XD )

anyways, my weird little question is... would it be stupid to add more Trade good Tokens to the game so that they dont run out all the time (or are we playing something a little wrong if we allways run out XD )


what i mean of coarse is if it would unbalance the game to add more token :)

I think the game would get more boring. The more trade goods you play with, the less planets you will need to control as you will not be needing their resources and influence, so the less confrontation will be between players. Everyone will just spend their turns trading and producing instead of conquering and battling.

There are additional tokens in the expansions, including 3x tokens

yeah ok thx :) i think ill go with it if they include more in the expansion


also ill have to say i disagree with you Robertcop2. for example the barony of Letnev, would be able to use their racial every time they planned on being able to.


what meant wasnt that people got more trade goods, they would still get the amount they are supposed to, through trade and such, but the problem we had when playing was that if the Emirates of Hacan were playing and they got the Trade Strategy Card, then they would get: 3 trade goods (TG) for using the ability, plus all the TG's from their trade agreements which could maybe be like 5 plus other little perks and thats maybe like lets say 9 TG plus the next guy would get 5 and the next guy got 5 too, thats liuke 19 TG given to the right people and thats like over half of the TGs the core game has, and we still have like 3 guys to go, that expect to get the amount they were planning on, but there arent enough TGs to give.


so if i add more TG tokens, then we still all get the right amount according to the game, but we dont go short on tokens :)


sorry for the sloppy-on-top-of-my-head example XD and sorry for typos
