Going to update the Cube soon, but first I wanted to ask for some feedback, especially from those who participated in the last draft: @martok88 @Kaiser @Mogh, Son Of Worf @Clerasil ToB @Caretaker's Guest @admiral-mogh @lotop
(1) Treaty decks were less popular than before, presumably getting another seed slot was deemed more valuable than combining the power of two affiliations.
(2) Overall, there seemed to be a tendency to forfeit as many non-dilemma seeds as possible in order to include more dilemmas.
(3) There was a little confusion about the second copy of Assign Mission Specialists. Reasoning: To make AMS work I need to include a certain number of specialists for all three affiliations. If there was only one copy of AMS more than 2/3 of those specialists will become somewhat inferior; a second copy of AMS balances this disproportion a bit. Alternatively, using only one AMS would mean to curb specialists which in turn makes AMS less reliable hence underwhelming. I think in this case it is worth to break the singleton stipulation, but I am open to suggestions.
(4) When selecting the single affiliation missions I favored those which do not require attributes. Especially for the Romulans I wasn't sure if that was a good move, since getting all the Treachery for i.e. Strategic Diversion
might be easier to setup than Covert Installation
. But, since the dilemmas are catered towards an attrition war, being able to leave back fewer personnel that can solve the mission and throwing the majority into overcoming dilemmas appeared better to me. I didn't play Romulans, but I'd like to know opinions about that matter.
(5) Should we make the starting facility a free seed?
(6) What is the opinion about little theme cards like Resistance Tactics
, or Patient Schemer
? My current inclination leads toward cutting them for more interrupts.
(7) Anything else you want to share, but especially recommendations about dilemmas is very welcomed as it is quite hard to keep up the 50%
and there's currently a lot of chaff that I want to throw out.
