Painting all these miniatures is starting to crimp my time...
Not really sure here, my son and I have thus far been playing the single player version, so all the action cards are in the open with the tokens to manage when we've played certain ones. With a true multiple player version do you hold the action cards and not discuss strategy? We love this game, but agree as many have commented, the rule book is AWFUL.I am not really sure how the rule book can be considered awful on this point when (below emphasis mine):
p. 10, A Game Round wrote:
1. Choose Actions Phase: Each player secretly chooses which Action card he would like to resolve this round.
p. 11, 1. Choose Actions Phase wrote:
During this phase, each player simultaneously chooses one Action card from his hand and places it face down in front of himself. ...The example given after that shows what you can discuss with the other player(s). Since each combat team only has two cards playable (after the first Round), other players can very likely know (50-50) what card each combat team is going to play.
Players may share any information they wish about their Action cards in their hand but may not show cards in their hand to other players.
I do not dispute that the rule book is not efficiently organized or presented (my mind was quite heavy and hesitant after reading the rules and setting up for the first game), but after playing once, it seems everything that is supposed to be in the book is there.
