Hello,

I read the rules and worried about events... Why hazard ? Sometimes hazard break a good euro game...
First i thought green events are not a real issue, but yellow and red yes... So players are going to try to increase financial status, stay in green, good. But :

- Green or Yellow ? Sometimes a yellow event is not worth than a green event... "Credit downgrade" it's tough and green... "brain drain" green financial statut -2, yellow : financial statut -1 ??? Yellow better than green... green or yellow, i don't care, so event useless for the game ?

- Some event forbid actions on the board... hum... If you make a strategy and plan next round to do an action and... unlucky you can't... Luck make you loose and break your strategy... Not so good...

I didn't play yet, so am i right to be worried about it ? And why take one (un)luck event card each round... Taking one only if financial statut goes down makes more sense i think and do the job : players wants to have the financial status up. Good or bad idea ? Have you tried it ?

Thank you.

In my experience so far the events don't often ruin your round. The worst I've found is when you're counting on a government subsidy or loan and then find then unavailable. Personally I find them very thematic but not too nasty. The green ones are the worst and the red are probably the most gentle so at least it doesn't kick you while you're down.

There are so many things to do on a round that I don't think the events really get in the way much.

I agree. Not a big deal but still slightly disruptive.

I would even go as far as calling it "just enough"

Ok, if it doesn't break the game, if you have always something to do it doesn't matter, but what the point ? Thematic ? hum... You try to play without it ?

It's a very thematic game. I intend to keep playing with them as it only makes sense that worse things happen the worse off the economy is.

Generally, the green events are harder than the red ones. This was intended so that at the first rounds the game itself pushes the economy downwards. Recall that Axia's status starts at the green level. So, when you draw that nasty green events, the marker is getting down directly...

We included the events as a way to mimic real life situations, where real life events affect the economy. As you will read in our Designer's Diary in the future, most of these events have happened...

Of course, you can always play the game without drawing the event cards.

Thanks for you answer. When we love euro games we hate luck make us loose without anything to do. We love build strategy, so when in the middle of something, event... bad luck... you can't do that.... and your stategy is down, only because of bad luck and not mistake... It isn't good...

So if events bring thematic feeling and it just push us to do other things without giving up our strategy, it could be great... I have to play.

But, waht about the idea : Event comes only if financial statut drop ? Thematic and we can fight it...

I strongly suggest you play the game with events as normal and see how you like it. I won't be fiddling with the mechanism because I like it.

Even the best strategies must sometimes evolve! Therein lies the fun.
