I'm playing as two marines and just won the 3rd map of the campaign. I've always been a completionist, so I had already earned enough points to buy an extra skill card for each of my marines by the end of the 2nd map. After the 3rd map i had enough to buy ANOTHER skill card for one of my marines, but opted for extra base armor for one of my marines instead.

I know the campaign rules state that i can only buy one extra armor per marine through the entire campaign, so that's fine, but what about skill cards? Im already feeling a bit overpowered having four skill cards per marine, and once i get them both to 4 base armor (probably after the 4th map), im going to continue saving up for more skill cards. 

I just feel like my marines are going to be pretty much unstoppable by the time I even get to start the expansion maps. Anyone have a remedy to this? Do most people allow just 1 extra skill card per marine? Not sure what to do. I don't usually like making house rules, but I may have no choice in this case.

The campaign rules aren't really that fleshed out. They sound a bit more like "here's a good idea for a campaign, good luck!" particularly when you include the Expansion missions. I would probably recommend starting the campaign over when you get to the Expansion missions, but until then, you can indeed draw another skill card.

Thanks for your input. I'll probably just start over once i begin the expansion missions as you suggested. I feel that it just wouldn't be fun with each marine having 5 or 6 skill cards hah :)
