However, I will say this. 6 cards isn't really enough. The pool is a little too diluted to be very useful with only 6 cards. We've found that to be proven true in our playing of the 3rd edition. I'd recommend using 12 cards in the pool as a "house rule". Something to think about.
We played for the first time with v.3 rules tonight, and I can see 6 being limiting - but we thought it was "ok" for this one play. It's definitely a limited resource which has to be taken into account when selecting your party platform, and sometimes you are forced to swap for something that doesn't hurt you instead of helps you.
Maybe a few more plays will make us itch for more cards...
