My wife and I completed 3 games last night with only 2 players (no automa). Today I was going to start game 4 with automa(s) but know my daughter wants to join. How do we add her and should we also add one or more automas?

montag: Thanks for your question. Whether you add Automas is up to you at this point. As for adding your daughter, let her choose a charter and give her an equitable amount of glory, capacity, coins, resources, cards, etc--it all depends on what you and your wife have.

Thanks Jamey. Will she be at a significant disadvantage by only have one or two buildings in her chosen Charter? My wife and I have 6 each.

If you have minions unlocked, she may suffer a slight disadvantage. But it will probably be more fun for her if she is in control of how her charter develops.

Nothing to add, other than that this thread made me smile: your daughter, seeing you and your wife play, wanted to join in; Charterstone allows that; and the designer was here right away to explain how.

Happy holidays!

I agree, what a great game. She was drawn in after watching us play. Here is our solution to add her with balance...
Spoiler (click to reveal)
We gave her a minion, 4 coins, the building card that was used to place a building on the Coal Charter (that was previously not used by a player, now it is hers), and then immediately let her open that crate so she would have a Persona and a few building cards to use. We also gave her an assistant. We let her start game 4 with Persona, assistant, building, minion, 4 coins and one coal. We also gave her 17 Glory and one capacity point to be even with us.


She loved game 4 and are playing game 5 in a bit.

Thanks Jamey!
