Busy busy busy!
Hello from Eugene!
Thursday's update was delayed because I had to catch a plane to Eugene for a frisbee tournament. The weather was gorgeous yesterday, and even though it was off and on sprinkling today, I am really enjoying the temperatures up here in the Pacific NW! Sorry for being so lax on the updates lately! We've been pretty busy with things around here. I am getting more and more excited for the release of Eminent Domain as well as all the other TMG summer releases, and I bet I'm not the only one!
Not much in the way of news this week - I believe the Eminent Domain Preview Nights signups are closed now, and I believe we have 51 confirmed stores, and 62 more that signed up but haven't been confirmed yet. I'm sure Michael will post a list of them when we have that final information.
Last week I posted a preview of the Prestige and Utopian planets for the backers - the rest of you will be seeing them soon enough!
TECH CARD HIGHLIGHT
For this week's Tech Card Highlight I was going to talk about 2 cards which help your game be more efficient in one way or another. Ok, I guess ALL of the tech cards basically make your deck more efficient... but I digress. I can't post the pics in this update because I'm out of town, but I'll link to the card images on BGG.
ABUNDANCE saves you actions as planets come into play with resource slots full - meaning you're geared up and ready to Trade right away!
ADAPTABILITY is a level 3 tech which helps you out if you have been concentrating on the Research role all game, and your deck is full of Researc cards (and not much else). Suddenly you'll be able to follow or boost any role! This card is pretty good for a heavy Research strategy because it helps make up for one of the down sides of such a focused strategy - that your deck will be full of cards for that role!
I hope everybody is having as good a weekend as I am!
