So, I ran across the Scoring rules in the book, and thought it would be fun to score the game I waiting to post in the Sessions area.

However, looking at the formula, I need the Difficulty of the game to score it. Simple enough if you are only using the base game, but I added in all of Branch and Claw, and Branch and Claw does not specify.


It does say that using the thematic map with branch and claw is only a +1 difficulty instead of a +3, but that doesn't necessarily mean anything in terms of the adversaries.

I am assuming that it is a net zero increase in difficulty, is this accurate enough?

It doesn't matter deeply, but it is the sort of thing people will end up asking eventually as the game gains in popularity.

The goal was to make it a net zero increase.

Yup, no net change in difficulty.

The reason the thematic maps get easier with Branch & Claw is that their setup includes more of the tokens from Branch & Claw than the balanced maps do.

Yeah, I saw that, but since nothing changed for the base adversaries I wasn't certain if they were simply reprinting those or if the net increase was zero

Yeah, I figured that decrease had more to do with the Thematic map being different than it did the events and tokens making the game that much easier
