After playing regular and Epic Thunderstone, I realized that I much prefer Epic. So I decided to try an Epic Nightfall variant using all the regular and promo cards from NF, ML and BC (CW is on order).

I sorted all the minions into 6 piles by primary moon color, and then did the same for the orders. This resulted in 12 piles, two of each color.

We allowed the top card from any 1 pile to be cycled during the purchase phase.

We really liked this variant. You had 12+ purchase choices each turn, and you could really buy towards some great chains. Our decks evolved quite differently, more so than with the common+private archives. Set up and clean up were a lot faster too.

I will definitely be playing this way from now on. Looking forward to adding the CW cards into the mix.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question, but because in that brief moment when the coin is in the air, you suddenly realize what you were hoping for.

Which one is better, this one or http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/677788/epic-nightfall
In this one, did you not have private archives at all?

Would be great to have official epic rules, as well as official pentagon and 2v2 rules...
