Played twice and liked it but both times the game has been ruined a little bit by some powerful interactions or cards.

First game we found the empire card that gave a scroll every turn was just too good and gave the edge to the player that had it, not a huge edge, but enough to win. Having a scroll always available for your first action when the best cards tend to cost a scroll pushed him over the top. Yes it's an expensive card, but it has 3 abilities on it and getting a scroll is probably the best ability in the game, it really should be a B card, not an A.

Second game we discovered that having Stomper and Screamer on or near the top of the 1 star titan deck meant that if someone was allowed to put two workers on Draft for 2 daggers, they could take the entire 1 star titan deck on their first turn, use their third worker to repair and end up probably with 1st player, only having spent 1 coin and an insurmountable lead. Obviously with a bit more experience we know now we MUST either block Draft or grab up the 1 star titans if either Stomper or Screamer are showing, but this is not at all obvious for first time players.

It's not a damn moped!
You played wrong.

Every attack on a Titan REQUIRES that you pay a military card.

Draft and swords/arrows on other cards can augment your military, but every attack must use a military card. (And of course each Military card can only be used once per round.)
