Rule: During the setup for a 2-player game, take 3 headlines cards to fill the board with the starting stories. Continue the game as per normal.


Hi there,

I don't usually post here, but after a short exchange of emails with Robert Dulkes, co-creator of Penny Press, I was encouraged to share my little setup variant for 2 players.

As the rulebook states, the general setup is to draw as many headline cards as there are players, to fill the board with the starting stories.

While the 2-player variant is meant to have both players constantly stepping on each others' toes, my playmate and I felt that the amount of starting stories was a bit constraining, especially if both headline cards only added 2 stories each.

So this variant suggestion is just a small tweak we came up with to slightly decrease the toe-stepping and speed up the rounds before going to print with the first edition. The drought of stories will eventually catch up as intended.

Cheers.
