Hi all,

I played the games a few times now, and really love it. As I will mainly play 2-players, I thought about a few minor changes so that the 2p-game becomes more exciting (even more than it is already!).

What do you think? I did not try it yet, but the following came to my mind:

1) Place 2 puzzle pieces each time you have to place one. Cards allowing you placement of a second tile now allow a third tile. Get the reward only for the first tile you place.
(Reason: In out games, the unconvering of the conspiracy was rather neglected, we only managed to create one link. That took away a this great mechanic and also lead to a meaningless existence of the conspiracy. With more than 2p, surely more puzzle tiles will be placed. That's how I came to this suggestion)
2) Almost the same as above: I think there are too few evidence tokens placed in a 2p game. Here am rather unsure: Maybe 2 evidence per player and action is too much. Any ideas?

Cheers!

Hmm! Seems a little too powerful for me Volker

How about rewarding digging deeper a little more by awarding a bonus tile at the favour level (take a tile from the first or 'shift' pile - if you already get a bonus from the favour pile, take two). The same could be done with the baggage pile (ie take two extra)

Not tried it - 'cause I'm a conspiracy freak and don't have your trouble in two player gamescool

Regards!

Mmmh, if I understand you correctly, this will lead to (almost) the same amount of puzzle tiles as with my suggestion: Dig Deeper, place 2 tiles. Same with my suggestion. Or did I get it wrong?

Not far away

Digging deeper requires extra pieces of evidence. This will hold back the conspiracy a little more than giving away two pieces every time.

You could try either/both and report back?

Regards
John
