How do Gambits work? Are they shuffled in to your deck, or do you choose one at the start of the game to use? I guess I have the same question about Merc Crusier – does it go into the trade deck?

Just trying to understand why folks think 2 promo packs are necessary.

Probably they want one per deck. If I understand correctly, each deck from the KS campaign came with a set of the promo cards.

Ah, so in the beginning of the game, you each choose a gambit and shuffle it into your deck? Interesting.

What is the sound of one card shuffling?

i think you deal out gambits at the beginning of the game, and then they can be used at any time. most of them are one shot cards that will give you a boost of some kind (+2 trade, +8 combat etc), but some of them stay in effect until trashed. they dont get shuffled into your deck though.

The Gambits actually have a grey border instead of a black border on the back, so I think it makes more sense that they are used whenever instead of shuffled into your deck.

The cards state that you select how many Gambit each player gets, then deal that number out to each player before the game starts. That is all.

The bottom of the gambit cards tell you what to do.

"When playing with Gambit cards, choose a number of them to be dealt face down to each player. You may reveal any Gambits at the start of the game or during your Main Phase."
