My group tried this "alternate" set up the other day and seemed to enjoy it.

Basically we lined up all five scenarios in an adventure and laid out the cards for every location. We build the decks for every location. Then we set aside all the cards for scenarios 2-5 and played the first scenario.

When we were done with the first scenario, we reset our decks, grabbed the second scenario, shuffled a new blessing deck and off we went.

This allowed us to go from scenario to scenario and keep the momentum and fun rolling.

Pros--Much quicker set up time for each scenario. Rather then shuffling monster, barrier, etc. etc. decks five times, we only had to shuffle them once. It also increases the variety of boons and banes(am I the only one who keeps drawing a crowbar every scenario?).

Cons--if you miss out on a boon you like, unless there is a duplicate, you won't see it again for awhile. If locations are used twice, you have to remember which set of cards go for later scenarios(we just put a note with them in the pile).

That's it, so what do you think?

Sounds good, if a little faffy setting up. We just don't shuffle the decks until the end of each adventure when you shuffle in the next lot of cards.

... or you setup the first scenario, as usaual, but when you close the locations, you bann the cards by puting them aside, instead of putting them in the box... You then prepare the second scenario with cards from the box (without the cards put aside from the first scenario), and so on... Could be simpler like this.

I love your idea, it ads a lot of variety to the cards, and we already do it with other games : when playing King of Tokyo, the power cards that are discarded are kept aside, so we always pick new ones each time we renew the power cards.

Cheers!
