If you had the following hypothetical scenario chains:

5 scenarios in question. 2 Global Achievements, X and Y.

1: Unlocks 2 and 3.
2: Requires Achievement Y incomplete. Grants Achievement X, unlocks 4.
3: Requires Achievement X incomplete. Grants Achievement Y, unlocks 5.

So, you effectively have a choice: 1 -> 2 -> 4 or 1 -> 3 -> 5. Once you complete 2, you can no longer do 3 in campaign mode. You can do 3 in casual mode, but you won't be able to read the story text or unlock #5.

Is there any way to unlock 5 solely for casual mode? You'll never be able to place the sticker on the board, which as I understand it is the sole requirement for doing a story in casual mode. I wouldn't mind so much (except for completeness) except that doing scenario 3 in story mode would make me want to see the next story (even though you aren't meant to read the scenario 3 end text, i inevitably would).

Thoughts?

There's a scenario flow chart in the files section (it spoils links, but not content). We're tracking our progress with it, and when we're done we'll be able to see exactly what scenarios we've missed out on by our story decisions... Our plan is to then return to those critical turning points, and explore the other forks in the path as a "what if we had done otherwise" kind of thing.

Could you play a separate campaign with another party?

This is my plan too. I'm not sure I'll place the stickers on the board, but after we finish all the scenarios we are permitted to do, we are likely going to go back through and just play the ones that aren't part of our campaign for funzies.
