Game came yesterday and still haven't got around to playing it - just have a few minor points that I still don't currently get.
1) Seeing as diplomatic rules aren't used in the 2 and 3 player game this obviously means the ambassador tokens aren't used. However, terrans have an ambassador only place on their reputation track. Does this mean in a 2/3 player this is always left blank or does it revert to a normal reputation spot in these circumstances?
2) Related to this has anyone played a 3 player game and used the diplomacy rules? I get why you cant do it in the 2 player game but in 3 player it looks sorta possible. Does it just end up with one alliance ganging up the third player?
3) More of a normal rule question here. Rules say the Eridani empire player draws 2 reputation tokens at the start of the game. As with normal reputation draws does the player only keep one or both in this case?
Thanks and apologies if these have been answered before. Couldn't find them
1) Always left blank.
2) You could, but this would likely make the game lack conflict. With so few enemies, you need all the incentive you can get to get people to fight rather than talk nicely to each other.
3) He keeps both.
