I'm curious about the wording on Admiral Bill's special skill. Why is it "play as admirals?"
Its just to allow them to report for free to Office of the President. Seemed more appropriate to focus on Admirals than presidents or ambassadors!
My first thought was something to do with Inspection, but that's exchange anyways, do that wouldn't work as is. I guess the Bajoran guy that has a similar ability extends free reports and similar wording would perhaps make it seem like you could get another report out of it rather than just expanding the pool?
Also, why do you hate Once More Unto the Breach? Clearly this was the right spot for it to come back from it being relegated to ... That *other* edition of which we shall not speak.
Generally, when we design a set we look at what cards that group needs first, and any conversions are secondary. A member of Creative suggested using Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner, and we stole the odd universal personnel from 2E, however Once More Unto the Breach was not raised at any point!
Lastly, did anyone come up with any fun combos to stack guess who's coming to dinner with in playtesting? That's the one I'd be most concerned about as the restriction to just quo'nos maybe leaves a door open to stack it with non-CF decks.
The fact that using non- personnel / ships resulted in reduced Range and one less card draw meant that combining and non cards needed to be really good to justify. We found that with Fed decks we needed a harsher lock, but we didn’t find such a need for the Klingons.
As a longtime CF Klingons player (since the beginning wooo -- oh wait, damn that
means I'm super old now
) very impressed with this whole set. And all the universals that play free at Great Hall
Sorry Gorath/Korchoth, make way for better options, yay!
Kor’choth remained a useful option in my Klingon decks!
Well done guys.
