Any chance of adding another event to Gen Con? My Saturday is booked, but I have a lot of free time on Friday....
I agree. @Marc: you're best bet is to email Catalyst directly to get some answers.
@Marc Email them. I am 99% sure they don't read comments.
@ROTATED: That could work, you could use the tiles they replaced under them in that fashion. I like that idea. Thanks Chirs, now I can justify buying two pack. =/ lol
Can we *PLEASE* get an update as to when we can expect the remaining premium components to be shipped? Looking to get the Leather Surfaces, Wooden boxes, and tile I designed.
@Who controls a rotated tile: We put our flag or another tile of our color/stain under it. So you just look at it's 'base' color. That works.
I was talking about if you had more than 1 of given tile from this expansion. Such as if you bough two packs so each player could just exchange 1 set. That wouldn't work with the 90degrees because you'd loose of who controls what.
You can print the file below. Put the SE tiles on in aligned to the top (so you can also see the standard tile names). When you take one of the SE tiles put the standard tile aligned to the bottom (so you can see the SE tile name).
When someone uses one of the special tiles, we have been putting the pulled tile at the foot of the board on your side, that way the 90° rotation doesn't cause you to loose track of the tile owner. I also wrote the name of the replacement tile on the new tiles so you can easily see what they replace (a reference card would work for that also, maybe something with a square for each tile and you replace the expansion tile with yours when you grab it).
@DDC Agreed about the Engineer. I would say you should buy two sets and substitute each tile into both players' bags. The problem is that with the 90degree rotation you'll lose track of which one belongs to which player. I imaging that primary reason for not having more than one is due to that.
@CUSTOM They could just include some sheets in this pack, instead of creating a whole new custom pack #2.
@COLORS I hope your right. There are only so many distinct enough colors though.
I'm still waiting for the arrival of the base game before I concern myself with expansions!
I think if the tile set is colored differently than the other sets the link cluster wont be a problem. If all the orange tiles are linked, and all the purple tiles are linked it wont be hard to remember.
The custom tiles have the icon centered and half of these tiles have the icon in the back 2 rows. So for the custom sheets it would be nice to have the front/back icon as a sticker, and a blank square (to cover up the printed front/back icon). That is if we are talking of a custom tile pack #2.
I do think having only 1 engineer is problematic. It seems who ever has him has a distinct advantage. I have only played 2 games so far so I am not positive it is a definitive issue. Once I play several more games I will submit what I find to the email listed. Just wanted to point it out to see if anyone else came up with the same issue.
A few points about the rules emailed in.
Will these be red like the REH set, or possibly another color? *crosses fingers for another color*
Is there much of a chance of getting a sticky sheet with the new icons and abilities for use with our customs? That'd be awesome!!!
Does anyone else worry that the way link is designed could create a giant cluster if more link tiles are made? Seems likely that I'll have to constantly be looking at the rules to remember which goes with which, if ever playing with multiple link tiles. It would be much nicer if a symbol or letter could be placed somewhere on the tiles so that it is obvious - like say a letter E (for engineer) on the siege weapon tiles, above their names. It would fit with how the enhanced abilities are marked and would mean not having to check the rule book. Anyone think it's a suggestion work emailing in?
