Hi Steve,

Enjoyed playing this for the first time at Game ON! convention over the weekend. We played 3 and 4 player games.

Something we changed on the fly was this:

We read the rules literally that a player only gets his first 5 cards during his first turn. We changed that to all players draw 5 cards each to start the game.

Just didn't seem fair that the guy that went 4th in the first turn had to get hit 3 times before getting any defensive cards.

For that matter, in a 2 player game we will do the same. Was that your intent? Or did we misread the set up and start of play?

THanks for a great game!

Jeff

If you check the flight checklist on page 6 of the rules it says to deal out 5 cards to each player before the game. You guys were right to deal out first. I am pretty sure it says it elsewhere in the rules as well but I just can't remember where at the moment.
