Had my first play through yesterday and enjoyed it very much. Most of the questions that were raised were answered by these forums, so thanks all for the communal input.
Here is one that had us a bit stumped and felt a bit cheaty...
If you have two allies that give you a -2 Discount per visit to the mod shop, do they stack? If so can you visit a mod shop with -$4 Discount and get a cargo hold ($3) for free? We could not see any reason why not.
Your thoughts would be appreciated, so thanks in advance.

Hey Rob! We had our first game yesterday as well and really enjoyed it a lot. What a fun and multifaceted game experience! We also got through most of the rules fine but had the same question you did regarding the Mod Shop discounts and one other question.

First of all, we played that all Mod upgrades cost at least $1 regardless of discount. Otherwise you could grab as many as you want - if you have the room of course. So the official answer will be interesting.

The other question we had that maybe you or someone else can answer is ... when you move into a zone with a Raider emblem and there is a Raider truck on the tile as well, which comes first - the combat or the Raider Truck move. In the rules, they both happen "when movement is finished". So if the emblem happens to be the same as the Raider Truck on the tile, can you move that truck away before having to fight it?

Thanks!
Herm

Yes, the $3 cargo hold would be free. It is off your total purchase so if that is all you bought it would be $0.

If you are going to combat the raider truck, you stop movement immediately and combat.

If there is a raider symbol, you resolve it after combat is completed

Ah ... thanks Matt! So the discount is not per item but off of the total cost of all purchases. Got it. And thanks for the answer on the Raider truck - that's the way we ended up playing it anyway.

Thanks Matt. That's how we played it. I suppose it was a very lucky find those two allies right at the start if the game.
