Thread: Mansions of Madness: Second Edition:: Rules:: Negating when taking both Horror and Damage

Board Game Geek - Articles - Sat, 08/20/2016 - 22:11

by CastroMax

Just finished our first game, and came across this ambiguous instruction from the app: "Suffer 1 Damage and 1 Horror (Will test negates)."

Can the Will test negate both the Damage and the Horror, or just the Horror?

Aren't the majority of these games made in China? What is to prevent say, Panda, from just making a few hundred more and "selling" them off to a third party?

Nothing.

You're right, the Crimean mountain is missing a Polanian icon, but it's so, so minor--we're not going to reprint the cards just for that.

Thread: Fatal Alliances: The Great War:: Rules:: Help needed with rules

Board Game Geek - Marketplace - Sat, 08/20/2016 - 22:05

by Wazza1

I've recently commenced my first game of Fatal Alliances III and have no previous experience playing World in Flames. My fellow players have considerable experience playing WiF but this is their first go at FA.

I've noticed anomalies in rule interpretation that are going against me as the CW player. But I'd like your assistance to check my assumptions before I put forward my claims on the following:

1) Choosing naval combat
I have been seeking a major surface action in the North Sea against the German Navy. I outnumber my opponent's SCS, neither of us has submarines or cps present, but he has placed two Zeppelins in the North Sea. He claims that unless I win three surprise points and choose surface combat, the default combat is naval air. My reading of the rules is to the contrary, and that unless naval air is chosen specifically using surprise points, surface combat is the default. I think my opponent is actually employing the WiF rules where WW2 aircraft did actually convey a greater advantage. Grateful for your views.

2) Use of Optional Rules
Do all players have to agree at the start of the game the use of the optional rules in the manual? We're four turns in and my opponent has just introduced optional rule 1 (limited overseas supply). This is now hurting me across the globe. But when I seek to enforce other optional rules to my advantage, I'm told that they aren't in play. What is the accepted etiquette in employing optional rules?

Thanks

Played tested A Handful of Stars. I am not sure I like it more than AFAoS but the multiplayer works well.

Did you like it more than Mythotopia (if you played that)? I was pumped for Mythotopia but it greatly disappointed me due to the waaaay elongated endgame. :cry:

If you aren't aware shipping from China go the US is actually drastically cheaper than going the other way. So the fact that shipping is really low shouldn't be a huge flag.. I'm going to order one and see i think.

The biggest flag I can see is the fact that literally everything they sell is $14 including things that should actually cost less than 14.

Any that have more than 1 token have the potential to turn up twice. You'll need a few of the more common ones like Cultists, Dark Young etc. Unfortunately these 2 are unavailable at the moment.

I have multiples of all monsters where there are multiple tokens, although not a one for one match.

Also there are a few GOO related ones you'll need several of like: Children of Abhoth & Servants of Glaaki.

Hey Thomas,

Thanks a lot for posting more thoughts. I don't have my game handy right now, to follow all your points, but I wanted to respond to let you know I'd seen them. You've probably played it more than I have now, so are in a better than me to critique and improve, so let me know if you have any ideas. I'll try to think about your points more over the next day or so.

You never know, if we can get it balanced right, and be a fulfilling game, maybe we can get in the Living Rules!

Thanks,

Colin

A brief hijacking since you don't have this one yet.

Since you seem to be into these LCG style games, what is it about Star Wars LCG that failed so much for you?
