Hey!
So first I haven't even played the game but while sleeves the damage cards (I'm guessing that is what they are called) it hit me that it might be more fun to randomize the glitches.

So, I thought if you draw the "Glitch" card, you roll the D6 dice twice and switch the two numbers. I'd you roll the same number two times in a row; you go lucky and no change.

If you draw "Major glitch", simply roll 6 times, switching slots 3 times.

Well, they are randomized already. That's what the cards are for

This was our original method for glitches, but we found that it really slowed the game down in playtests. Your milage may vary, though.

Hey!
Thanks for taking the time to answer.
That's very interesting, I didn't think of that. Speed is always desirable, to the point that making the events more static can be worth it.

I'll be playing my first game on Tuesday.
Really looking forward to it!

@haslo : sure, in a way, but it is always the same slots being switched.

Not every glitch card swaps the same two slots, so there's still plenty of variety in the glitches!
