    Flanks

    I just don't understand why you would suppose a single creature is not on a flank when the rules state that a) Each time a creature enters play, it must be placed on a flank and b) The creatures on the far right and far left of a player’s battleline are on the flanks of the line. It all but literally states that a single creature is on a flank (both even, but that hasn't mattered so far). Why deny this is so? Can you explain your reasoning behind this? Going to rule a) Each time a creature enters play, it must be placed on a flank. You seem to agree this rule is for placement of creatures. So what do you see happen here? A creature enters play on a flank, but as soon as it's in in play (and the only creature) it stops being on a flank? I don't see anything in the rules to back this train of thought. As to rule b) The creatures on the far right and far left of a player’s battleline are on the flanks of the line. Is a single creature not part of the battleline in your reasoning? Because if it is it just says there quite literally that on the right and left side is on the flanks. And a single creature is both on the far right and far left of the battleline. I genuinely can't see the issue here :S

    Rules seem pretty clear on this, one creature is on both flanks if it’s the only creature.

    Shedding Chains

    That would give an obvious advantage to decks with a lot of cards that let you draw. With the way they use it now (if poorly worded) every deck sheds chains at the same speed.

    Ignore that, it’s now listed as At the Printer
  5. For a lot of games I’m not that into expansions. A lot of times they’ll just muddy the experience with new mechanics. This game could really benefit from an expansion though and I will keep hoping that we’ll see one.....someday.

    Legacies vs Way of the Force

    Swiss rounds playing a single game. Depending on the number of players there could be a top cut (usually to 4 or 8 except for the biggest tournaments). Top cut varies, sometimes it’s single elimination, sometimes it’s best of three. TO will let you know in advance which it is usually.

    Shedding Chains

    According to the Upcoming section of this site, it’s still in development and not yet at the printer. And from my following along several Kickstarter boardgames I understand that rules are quite often the last thing printed. So there might still be an opportunity there. And yes, I am aware the Upcoming section isn’t always the most reliable of sources.

    What's the point in to buy a Core Set?

    What you mean to say is that they hold no value to YOU since you are apparently only interested in Organized Play. What you fail to see is that to the majority of consumers the starter decks are just as much a deck as the unique ones are. And therefore $40 for 4 decks and tokens will be perfectly reasonable to a lot of people.

    Technically he’s correct though, under the current rules as written Chains will not ever effect anyone since at no point in this game does anyone “draw cards to refill their hand” of course if anyone tries to use this reasoning in an actual game I will slap them, because we all know what is meant (there’s even an example in the rules), but it would be nice if FFG could find a better way to word this before release.

    On the contrary, this is probably the most useful core/starter box since I don't need to buy 2 or 3 and still have 4 playable decks. All depends on how you look at it. But I get that you're not interested in buying a starter box. That's fine.

    What's the point in to buy a Core Set?

    That's only if you know where to find the rules and have tokens available. Again, that's not the average casual customer that sees a new game on shelf and wants to give it a go

    What's the point in to buy a Core Set?

    It's a very decent entry point for the casual gamer who wants to try the game and can't be bothered to hunt down better tokens and/or just wants to play the game as is. You can probably get a lot of mileage out of the single starter box.

    Shedding Chains

    You only shed a chain when you would draw one or more cards, so I agree that if you are at your handsize (typically 6, but there are exceptions, like when you have a Mother in play or your opponent has a Succubus in play) you do not shed a chain since you wouldn't draw one or more cards.
  14. Palpster

    Shedding Chains

    agreed, shed 1 in each case

    Shedding Chains

    It doesn’t say whenever you draw cards, it says whenever you WOULD draw cards. When you are lower than 6 you would draw cards, so you loose a chain even if you don’t get to draw a card because of them.
