    UK restock?

    There is a vast majority of the products out of stock here in the US as well. All I know is that when it says the products are on the boat, I still have a bout 6-8 weeks before the product even reaches the docks here plus a little more time for shipping.

    Entrenched Positions and PDS

    This is a big meta tactic for Jol Nar and Xxcha, they will just post up in their pie slice and maximize their PDS usage. Our group will realize that and try to minimize their ability to setup in their systems before it becomes a problem. It all depends on your group's personal meta.

    flagships in home system

    The restriction has been removed and you can build anywhere that you have a space dock.
  4. I hate to be that person, but is it possible that we let this forum die? It seems that it is just causing what is in my opinion trolling on some people's parts, and then it results in it being infuriating for those of us that enjoy it. Can we agree to not feed the troll?
  5. As RoffeDH had posted before, here is the response from Dane: The Floating Factory requires you to be able to completed the Construction Strategy Card FIRST, then when you would place the Factory it goes into space instead. Fantasy Flight has worked hard to make things as painfully clear as they can for 4th ed. Because of this, you follow each step of the card/ability top to bottom. Hopefully this has cleared up the issue.
  6. It gives non Ghost players the same ability as the Ghosts. That is the reason why that is so brutal. The primary strength of the Ghosts is their mobility, by having such a highly mobile fleet it lets them do things that aren't able to be done by other players. If you give all of the other players at the table the same ability, you literally leave them with only a slightly faster speed and a separated home system, that's it. They don't get any other special ability to make them still stand out, they just become even more mediocre. I also say that as a primary Ghost player, I love them but take away the advantage of wormholes being their play thing and share it with everyone and they crumble like a cracker.

    1st Edition Gators Only?

    Thanks for the correction! I knew something was off after I said it. I bought it over a year ago so its hard to remember haha.

    1st Edition Gators Only?

    1) Did you purchase more than just the base game ? 2) Did you check to see if you have the correct content checked in the app itself (as Lorinor stated above)? 3) Try checking the symbols on the tiles, and what the app is asking for. The tentacle represents the base 2nd edition game so unless you have other kits, you should only have the tentacle tiles available to you. The 2nd Edition game comes with all of the minis for the conversion kits, but it doesn't have the stat cards for any of the characters or monsters. You would need to purchase the kits separately, and then unlock the proper content in the app.
  9. That is correct, but still it means that the ghosts can't activate about 2/3 of the systems they control if playing right.
  10. As a Ghosts player, I can attest to the unnecessary brutality of the two agendas. We have enough problems as it is without having to keeps some political secrets or forcing the agenda to get skipped through other means and trades.

    "Fire spreads" direction dice?

    Ugh I have way too many scatter dice to be proud of. It isn't a bad idea to use them. How would you determine which fire space to spread from to start, and what if it spreads in the direction of a wall or other fire tile? I am legitimately interested in this concept so the more hammering out of it that gets done the quicker I can show my group lol

    "Fire spreads" direction dice?

    Ok perfect, my group originally played it the correct way but another guy who prides himself in being a rules lawyer said we played it wrong and it goes everywhere. I will promptly tell him he is wrong and the maps will be much easier to play.

    "Fire spreads" direction dice?

    Are you sure that the fire doesn't spread to all adjacent spaces containing fire?
  14. The way that everyone I have even know plays the card as: Spend 1 Strategy Token, this then allows you to spend 4 resources for a technology. The Jol'Nar ability says when you spend a strategy token to resolve the secondary ability, resolve the primary instead. Order of operations kicks in and you spent the strategy token, now you resolve the primary ability instead of the secondary. Final cost for 2 tech is 1 Strategy Token and 6 Resources, as opposed to 1 Strategy Token and 10 Resources. Unless everyone I know is wrong and has always played it incorrectly. If that is the case then I would stand corrected.
  15. As far as I can remember, any face up pile is completely open knowledge and can be looked through at any time on your turn. It may be a hold over from some other game, but that is how our group has always played.
