@Don - One mat will work for 2-4 players. You only need one mat per game set.
Sorry for the random question I was wondering how many playmats would be needed for a 2player game and a 4 player game?
So for the Cowboy - "Target opponent loses 1 Glory. Another opponent gains 1 Glory, if possible."
For the Cowboy, we may end up making that three sentences, but the intent is that you you take 1 Glory from an opponent then either a) give it to the 3rd & 4th player in multiplayer games or b) it is still taken and "lost" in a 2 player game. This eliminates the swing issue in 2 player games.
For the Soldier, the player (not opponent) with the least gets the additional bonus Glory. Sometimes this could be you, and sometimes it could indeed be another player!
And yes, the Viking got more powerful, as is his Viking right! :)
Kevin beat me to it - the new abilities don't make sense in a two-player game and what does "if possible" result in if it is not possible? Also, removing 1 glory results in a 1 point change but taking 1 glory results in a two-point (differential) change and is therefore much more powerful in a two-player game than a "lose 1 glory".
I'm very excited to be backing this project and have no doubt that the final product will be fantastic! However, I do have a few questions about the character ability changes noted in this update. The Cowboy's ability now reads "Choose 1 opponent. Take 1 Glory from their pile and give it to any other opponent, if possible." Does this mean that the Glory isn't taken from your opponent in a 2-player game? Or does it mean that the Glory taken is yours to keep or placed in the pool? As for the Soldier's new ability description, it says "Gain 1 bonus Glory from the pool. Take 1 additional Glory from the pool and give it to the player with the least Glory." If I play the Solider and win my battle in a 2-player game and still have the least Glory, do I get the additional Glory? If my opponent were to have the least Glory, am I required to give them the award or can I bypass that portion of the ability? Please clarify...and thanks in advance!
Looking good guys!!
