Hi!

We're just learning the game and build our first backup system. It starts with all systems red. With all setup complete, we only have 1 spare green cube in the box. Where do we get the green cubes to repair the backup solar panels and the other mandatory parts (oxygenator, greenhouse).

Thank you very much for any help!

If any lack of component in the game, use replacement token.

So there aren't enough green cubes included to even fit on all necessary spaces in the introductory mission? O.o

I just used some blue ones.

I might take some of the green ones from my King of Tokyo box, there are too many in there anyway LOL.

Believe me, once you reached the next scenario, you will NEVER ask this question again ...

As true as your comment may be, we lost a whole hour of gaming time to the fact that we though to be playing the game wrong because of the 'missing' green cubes yesterday. We checked everywhere because we couldn't believe that there was even the possibility of supplying the players with too few cubes in the first place.

Looking forward to our next play session though.

my copy had enough green token to fill all spaces and have some leftover; but there are not enough tokens to fill the stuff you build as the mission goals.

That's my point exactly.

My game had an extra green and an extra of a colour I forgot but it still wasn't enough.
I think the game should've had enough cubes to satisfy the Intro scenario. But it's a minor thing.

I had a bagful of little square chits left over from having punched all of the status boards......

Thought they might come in useful for something!

I finally found some use for the cubes that were left over after finishing Pandemic Legacy!

If you need more greens you could always salvage a few from the Living Block

I got a couple of bags of 8mm cubic glass beads from Amazon (UK).



These had enough greens and blues to fill in. Also, they had some yellow cubes that I'm using for plants (now aka "Corn" )
