Heyo!

So, folks are getting their copies, and I thought I'd throw out a little variant that I nearly included in the rules if not for page count limitations.

Basically, take out 10 random capability cards from the deck and give each player two. Then each player secretly chooses one. The unused capability cards are discarded and not shuffled in (so the deck will be a little light on capabilities. All players reveal their starting capabilities alongside their starting loyalties.

All starting capabilities begin "active."


That's it!

Also, sometime later I'll post a couple historical scenarios, one 4 topple game that starts in 1823 and another 2 topple game that starts a little later.

Awesome! Thanks for making this. That is what I love about games from you and Phil. Little add ins and tidbits after the game has been released.

To give it better visibility, could you include it in the living rules?

I imagine I will. As folks play the expansion, I'm sure rules questions will come up and there will be another version of the living rules up in a few months. Hopefully I get the historical scenarios nailed down by then as well.
