Subject: More than six players? rss

Is it possible to play with more than six players? (Assuming I've printed out extra challenge cards and boards.) I'd like to try this with my regular poker group, but we sometimes have more than six show up and I'd prefer no one be left out.

From my calculations it seems like the most cards you could go through per player are:
2 (Breakfast)
+ 2 (Snacks)
+ 2 (from green/orange/purple abilities)
= 6

The center uses 5 cards, and Mari-Dori can add one for one player. So 61 cards - 6 = 55, 55 / 6 > 9, so it seems like you could *possibly* play with up to 9.

Does that seem reasonable? Would the game be significantly worse with so many people, since fewer sit out hands than in poker?

Thanks.

There's a thread about this on the Fantasy Strike forums, but it doesn't contain much info on how this should work besides adding more boards and chips.

That's exactly what I was looking for, thanks! Here's Sirlin's quote from that page:

You'd need enough chips and boards (even P&P ones are fine) for the extra players, but there are no rules that would prevent it. You certainly could play with 8. I just felt more confident about endorsing 6p as a good experience, and I'm less sure about 8. (I would still personally prefer it with 8 over poker though.)
