Sounds like the game dragged om way longer than it should. Did you use all the new event tiles (34?). If i remember correctly it should only be 16 tiles + 2 silencium per game.
No, we definitely used only 18 tiles, although that would definitely explain the problem away if we hadn't.
Played twice now. The first game had almost all the positive/easy negative event tiles and that made me think it was a mediocre expansion as well. The last quarter of the game was quite boring. Second game saw more negative tiles. That was a good game.
Interesting. After looking through some of the ones we didn't use I think we did get more easy events than would be normal. I still feel unsure though as our scores were unusually high and didn't feel that the events were helping us along too much.
