I ordered the starter pack and a booster from each faction a few days ago and I am eagerly awaiting their arrivals. The game looks great, and I can't believe it took this long for me to notice it (i'm more of a standard board game fan as opposed to CMG's - this will be my first, actually).
I just read the rules and FAQ online to prepare myself for the actual game, which only whetted my appetite even more.
My question is this:
In the Rules, it says that there are skirmishes of 3/3/3 per player, and tournaments of 10/10/10 per player.
Does this mean you MUST (in a skirmish example) use 3 miniatures, 3 tokens, and 3 command cards, or could you do a little substitution/customization and use 4 miniatures, 2 tokens, and 3 command cards - so long as the total still equals 9 overall components of 3 gold, 3 silver, and 3 bronze.
FURTHERMORE (stick with me, please - your reading this far is much appreciated!):
Is there a way to play a game which has an intensity level somewhere between a skirmish and a tournament? Put more directly, could you carry out a game in which each player uses 5/5/5, 6/6/6, or 7/7/7?
ANY input would be greatly appreciated. CAN'T WAIT TO PLAY!
