I have played a couple games and I have noticed that you don't necessarily need to claim any milestones to win a game so my question is, if you don't claim any milestones throughout the campaign, do you unlock any of the boxes?

If you opt against claiming the "unlock" milestones, you will effectively be trapped in Game 1 ... FOREVER!

But you're right, claiming milestones is otherwise entirely optional. However, in my campaign, milestones were heavily contested -- and it seems odd to me that players in your game would manage to avoid (either on purpose or by accident) claiming any milestones even after a couple of games.

Just to clarify: If you fulfill the prerequisite for a milestone, claiming it is mandatory. Of course, you can still avoid fulfilling the requirements.

I'm sure Becq meant the same thing.

True. What I meant was "pursuing". But it's a distinction worth pointing out.

If you find that you and your players aren't going for milestones, remind everybody that they are worth a fair amount of glory, and (minor early game spoiler)

almost all milestones award a permanent upgrade on par with those gained from winning a game.


They really should be inherently attractive enough that you shouldn't be stalled because people aren't trying for them. Heck, if anything, I think they're too rewarding, and many here have suggested cutting the glory awarded by them.

Not to forget that milestones are the only way to advance the storyline, so it's in everyone's interest to claim them sooner than later.
