Hi there,

Could 2 sets be used together somehow?

The best reason to buy 2 sets is to give one as a gift to somebody

I don't think you'd get any benefit from combining 2 sets for a single game.

- You only ever use 9 dice, so surplus dice won't be used (and why use 2 sets of the base story dice when you could get other sets for variety?)

- The game is in 5 scenes, with distinct subsets of scene cards for each scene, and you only use 1 scene card from each act per game - so having extra (duplicate) scene cards has no effect.

- Two sets of reaction/result cards could be mixed but... Firstly, it's nicely balanced in the core so you have a nice mix of good and bad (as no story is fun if it's too one-sided) and, secondly, rather than buy a 2nd set for that, you get similar results by just placing drawn cards back into the draw deck after they've been used/resolved.

I guess a second set would give you the extra tokens & player boards if you wanted more players, but sure that could be proxied if you wanted to do it.

It would also let you experiment a bit with your own variants (e.g. with extra scenes such as two lots of '2nd scene', or putting your own fronts to one set of scene cards). But, tbh, that's probably best playing about with plain printed paper or card (at least until you have a variant that works well for you).

Much as we'd love you to buy multiple sets, there's honestly no need from a gameplay point of view. The game is balanced to play with four, but if you wanted to add a fifth player, you can just proxy a few tokens like Dave mentioned.

Now, story cubes is another story. You can buy them all and combine them in all kinds of ways.
