I know the rules, but how do you win this game?
1, 2, 3, 4, 5
Re: Two questions about the Pre-Release Tournament (edit: and some follow-up questions)
Thanks. Some follow-up questions:
1) Do the players get their 3 random cards after the pre-release or are they skipped and the only random cards they should have are the 6 random cards given out before deckbuilding?
2) In a game with a pre-release tournament, does this mean that prize cards are only given out once? (I assume yes.)
3) In a game without a pre-release, do the players get a total of 9 random cards (3 from setup + 6 from the start of deckbuilding) before they start deckbuilding? (I assume yes.)
1) If you follow the rules literally, then the players get their first 3 random cards as part of the setup, so before the prerelease tournament. However, since the point of that tournament is to have players familiarise themselves with the tournament concepts, and they don't get to play those three additional cards yet, I think it makes a lot more sense to only hand out those cards after the tournament, maybe as a "prize support". Remember that the point of the prerelease tournament is to teach the game. It's up to you how you think that works best with your group.
