This is a question for the game designers...

We've seen several cards that have effects tied to the expansions COLONIES and VENUS NEXT, for example:

Jovian Colony Boom
Increase MC production 1 step for each colony. Gain 1 titanium for each influence.

Immigration To Venus
Lose 2 floaters or 2 MC. Draw 1 card for each influence.

Martian Protectionism
Gain 2 MC per Venus tag (max 5) and influence.


As the game designer, would you keep in OR remove these cards from play if you were not playing with the COLONIES and VENUS NEXT expansions?

I can see that there are some benefits to gain even if colonies, floaters, or venus tags are not in play. But are the benefits worthwhile enough to keep cards like this in the deck?

I'm not crazy. My mother had me tested.

I would not use the cards if I was not using the expansions. But since they are just promo cards seems reasonable.

I think that it would make sense to mark those cards with both the Turmoil expansion symbol and with the Colonies OR Venus Next one.
Having both symbols on the cards makes it easy to exclude expansions you don’t want to play with.

It shouldn't have either turmoil or any other expansion symbol. It should have a seperate promo symbol allowing you to easilly identify all the promo cards.

Based on the images in the Kickstarter, tagging them as promos is indeed what they are doing.

I would actually have tagged them with both a promo tag and the tag of the expansion it should be naturally be a part of.
