Fabulous looking game, Todd! Theme, cards, and rules are awesome. thumbsup

Would combining 2 decks make a reasonable 4 player game? Ever try it? Or, would all the extra cards skew the play in some way?

Thanks for all your efforts, and looking forward to the Artscow version.

hmm i think 2 decks would work for 3-4 players. i would probably remove half of each of the scientific research type cards from the 2nd deck however, they are balanced to always be short of both players needs. and perhaps increase the public outrage track to 35 for 4 players.

and thanks for the kind comments. much appreciated

Wonder if a team variant would be possible and keep the outrage track as-is. Each team would be working on the same body. Can't decide whether trading cards should be allowed as an action or banned outright.

hmm that's a good idea dave. i'll have to think about how i could manage that

perhaps one player is the parts 'procurement specialist' and other the science whiz. each has their own task but work towards a common goal.

or ..the 2 parts players could have a slightly different goal set fighting over limited spare parts. while the scientist players work towards a common research goal.
