I've uploaded my RRT Event Deck to the files section for your enjoyment. This is a deck of 24 cards that will increase the interaction in the typically "dead" areas of the board (along with a few other twists).

Download the file.
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/fileinfo.php?fileid=24471

Print out the sheets (Made for Legal size paper).
Cut them out.
Slip them on either side of a standard playing card in a card protector.
Play.

The readme.txt file explains it all in better detail.

Let me know what you think! I already have a bunch of new card ideas for version 2.0!

I downloaded the file, and the cards look quite promising. But the file labelled RRT Front Sheet 2 did not open. Did anyone else have this problem?

We have tried it a few time, and didnt like it. The most significant impact is that it extends the game. This is unfortunatly a possitive feedback loot, since in that part of the game a lot of points are scored, tiggering more events, extending the game even more.

Another effect we didnt like was that some event help the player drawing them. Since it is often the player in the leed, this is a very undesireable effect as close games tend to be more fun.

It didnt add much in terms of options. By 20 points you are pretty much comitted to a strategy.
