Hi

I have GOW and it looks great

But only done a quick game so far

But dont know what the Mission General AI numbers mean. on the bottom of the missions cards.

Like on the Emersence mission setup card at the bottom it says
General AI 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6

When you create your AI deck, you add the cards for each Locust type in the game AND you add all the "general" AI cards for that specific mission. For example, in Emergence, you would NOT use AI card #7. Many of the other missions have only 3 or 4 general AI cards, etc.

It is. 1/35 means card #1 out of 35 cards. For example, this card:



is card #5.

With 1 to 4 COG men. The number of players doesn't change the AI deck. What it changes is the Locust spawn during setup (look at the bottom of each Location card, it has a 1/2/3/4 section with different letters, like AA, AC, B, etc).

I've played solo and it's not bad, but I'm preferring group play more and more. I've done a couple 3 player games, lots of fun, and I've moderated a couple PBF games (one still going), and that's been quite enjoyable too.
