We were letting Myles (our 4 year old) roll for the bad guys most of the game. I made the mistake in the second turn and let him roll my party dice. He tainted them pretty well. My character wanted champions and he didn't roll any. I tried a re-roll, but that wasn't much better and got eaten by the dragon on the first level of the dungeon.
This was one of my more recent acquisitions. I tried to read the rules, but didn't finish. Thankfully, Scott was able to teach. There is a lot going on in the game. I made an early mistake thinking I had a different god card, and compounded it by not accomplishing my easy goal on the first turn.
Last game of the night and I was hankering for some Core Worlds. I took the phantom fighter again in the pre-draft. I think it still might be overpowered even playing with the max benefit of 5 from the faction card tokens. I had it maxed out by mid game and then was able to nab the core world Raven to get points from concentrating on the one faction. We also had some weird Galactic phases where it was either all units or worlds to start out.
