Hi all,
A couple of questions regarding game duration & # of cards

1.When playing 2 player flight, to keep the same game duration, does one discard 80 random cards?

2. If I add in the kickstarter promos [49 cards], do I take out more cards at random [40?] no matter if I am playing the base/flight/2 player?
Like a 2 player flight game with promos I would take out 120 cards?

Thanks!

I don't think Dom has posted official rules for the promos yet, but I believe you're supposed to take out all copies of another trait for each promo trait you add.

For example, if you want to add the Quills promo, you can remove all copies of Horns (or something else), and keep the deck the same size.

All,

I read somewhere on BGG where Dom replied about promos. He suggested against adding all the promos at once as it would throw off the balance of the deck.

He did say that adding 1 or 2 promos would probably be ok.

Sorry I don't have a link but it is buried in BGG somewhere.

Thx

Promo Cards
Remove 1 set of cards for each set of promo cards added.

2-Player Flight
Add the Flight cards to the base set, then remove 80 cards.

Is there still a 2 trait max for flight cards in a 2 player game? (So flight + only one other trait)

Yep! All of the base rules still apply except for the changes that are outlined in the Flight rules.

2-player Evolution & Flight makes for a pretty tense game! Managed to corner my coworker into maxing all of his avian species' body size to avoid predation...which blew up in his face spectacularly in a later turn. Turns out that running 3 avians with a body size of three on a crowded board makes for some *really* hungry species.
