Do the threat and security max out at 11?

As the boards say 11+ it seems like once you've hit 11 on either of those tracks you no longer need to worry about security (that 11 security guards can handle 37 threat just as easily as 12 threat).

Is that the case? Didn't see anything in the rules about it, so want to make sure.

Thanks!

I believe someone asked this on the campaign comments. They said that there will be chits to indicate your security and threat past 11. So 11 isn't the cap.

Thanks! It definitely seemed too easy to stop worrying about security at that point (though we only had 1 or 2 turns left ... we kind of called it at that point because it was getting late)

There will be, but you could get by without them. If someone has "1" threat in round 4 or 5 of the game, you can be darned sure they have 11 threat without seeing a +10 chit.

Oh there are plenty of ways to denote it. I was asking more for if it needed to be, or if 11 was the top.

A note in the rules about determining threat/security that there is no upper limit to how many tourists dinosaurs are able to eat would not be bad.

Yeah take that Mr. Game designer. We don't give a chit about your pieces. Hehe
