@GNS: just sent a comment regarding the name.
@Keith: I like that idea of the boost to Essence and Points idea! That is pretty cool.
Oh man, that would be kinda cool: Civilisations being single (or at least limited)-turn cards that give you a boost to Essence & Points, played for cheap/free on Planets with Life. Haha. Just a random idea, but kind of a neat one for the 'rise and fall' thing...
@GNS: It just suprises me (from the initial concept and interviews) that you're considering Civilisation at all! There were comments about keeping 'life' to look like algae etc, because the actual species (let alone cultures) were deemed too brief in the space of a turn...
@Keith we thought about the spread of life, but as an architect, you are probably not concerned with what life does, only that you created it and that they are civilized. We have batted around ideas of moons and lunar colonies and wormholes to move life from one planet to another, but that is not a reality yet as we are looking to keep the Architect busy with more grandiose concepts, if you will.
@William Send me over a message as soon as possible with your planet name, I need them by Friday, and we absolutely agree with you from a balance perspective! Thanks for your support!
@Alberto - Big news coming on the secret agendas.
So wait, Life can have Civilization now, too? Hmm. Can Civilization life spread between planets? After all, we're talking EONS of time, so a Civilization that counts is no doubt pretty impressive... ;)
Just updated my pledge to the Oxygen level. When will you need shipping addy and planet name suggestions?
Certainly appreciate the updates and consideration of play balance. I am happy to see you taking this seriously and moving to alleviate potential situations arising in which players are unable to compete due to a bad spirited player or even a simple one turn mishap. Being big on strategy games I really like games which have ways to cleverly think your way out of jam rather than the often found “make up” or “catch up” cards like “gain 1 VP”… anyhow, great details and updates!
Thanks for the update!
I'll be really interested to download the secret agenda PDF, when ready...
Thanks again for everything.
These look like good balancing changes. Thanks for the update.
