Location Markers Unlocked
Today we want to talk about our favorite stretch goal, the Location Markers. Thanks to the tremendous support, this stretch goal was unlocked yesterday and will be included in all copies of the game! The Location Markers don't change the game rules, but they have a great impact on gameplay for those who want a deeper, more strategic experience. We value a high decision point to mental upkeep ratio in our games, and the Location Markers allow a player to note at a glance the remaining location cards in both players' location decks, freeing their brain power to focus on strategizing instead of memorizing open and trackable information.
Knowing something, and knowing that your opponent knows it, adds an extra layer of nuance to the bluffing. For example, if you know that the opponent has no location 5 left, and he knows that you know this, it makes your playing a unit to location 5 a very strong tell (or a big bluff)! Gamers at conventions and our own playtesters have found Location Markers to greatly enhance the playing experience, and we hope you will have fun using them as well.
