When you take a job from Amnon Duul that says "Load passengers, No Limit", does that mean you can take on as many passengers as your ship can hold, or that you can take an infinite amount of passengers to your destination?
I'm leaning towards the former, but I wanted to see what anyone else had to say.

You can take as many as you have open spots for on your ship. Remember that Cargo, Contraband, Fugitives, Parts, and fuel take up space in your ship. For example, On Serenity you start with six fuel (3 spaces worth) and two parts (1 space worth), so you have eight spaces to put things in.

You can't carry more passengers than will fit on your ship.

How could anyone interpret that they can take an infinite amount i.e. empty the pool and then become a billionaire as you deliver them all ? Really ?

If designers would bother to write their rulebooks and card text more clearly and without holes, these questions wouldn't come up. Maverickx25 has the makings of a good playtester.

Although I agree that the rules could be clearer, I don't fully agree here.

1) The jobs DO say that you can load any number, but...

2) The rules also clearly indicate how much your ship can carry.

Without an additional exception, there's no reason to think #1 trumps #2. You can LOAD a zillion passengers. But you can only carry 12.

Absolute rubbish gulp. If you can't work out that drawing Patience's 'load unlimited passengers' as a starting job, being able to start from or near the Space Bazaar, arriving and loading ALL passengers (33 in my game), and then delivering them for a cool $9900 is fairy land stuff then head back to Snakes & Ladders people laugh.

And what Gwek said.
