Thanks a lot Will. I'll try to answer everything the best I can
Is the number of shanks limited? If so how do you resolve who doesn't get one? Maybe having seven of each card like you mentioned would aid in this.
7 cards work best definitely email me your address so I can send you the few more. At one point 6 of each was fine, but I had made the cards before the playtesting was completely done and had added a tiny rule that can effect the amount of cards.
Secondly, the bonuses only happen at the beginning of years two and three, but not before the riot?
This is correct. Also no solitary bonus after riot either.
Not sure how this would play out, maybe a respect or goods bonus, or even a unique action at the end of a year for being the best to achieve the years' agenda (event). I just feel with this game taking place in San Quentin, there needs to be some sort of Johnny Cash and Charles Manson event somewhere. So are you still considering this?
Man that's a great idea. I was thinking of a very small expansion with a couple more situation oriented cards and a hospital that I took out of the original design. Something to sell at conventions if I can afford it. A pure event as something more to generate points is a fantastic idea..
Thanks Will you rule!
