Just want to say that these types of threads are very helpful.
And I really like when players take the time to quote the rule book (with page numbers). Excellent.
I have two core sets, and on a hunch I did not mix the two damage card packs. It seems for tourney rules, each side should maintain their own pack. Perfect. I now have two packs and can accommodate this rule. I may not play in any tourneys, but playing by the agreed upon parameters is the whole point (for us).
Thanks for all the contributions here!
I've just got to ask, how did you ever find this thread? Was this a question you were actually seeking an answer for or did you just happen upon it digging through old threads? This forum has absolutely no semblance of organizaztion whatsoever and topics are repeated endlessly because no one has as much determination as you to dig through page after page looking to see if a similar thread has been posted. This forum goes through at least ten pages a month so things tend to get buried quite quickly.
Yes. This is exactly the question I had. I was about to post it but thought I should search for it first. I use other gaming site message boards and I tend to search for threads before posting when I can. Sometimes the board is so big and search is so horrible it is impossible.
Granted, this Msg board lacks some of the fidelity of others, but they all lack for want of features. I thought my answer would make the question "bump" to the top of the Rules Forum list, but it didn't. At least in my browser it didn't.
I did the most basic search, selected SEARCH FORUM, selected x-wing, and then put in "damage cards" I read through a page or so of responses to see that this thread "big battles and damage cards" was what I was looking to find.
It helps if the community of posters understands that a descriptive subject line REALLY DOES help.
As for the Rules Forum. It would be great if there were sections within it as well: Phases? Actions? Upgrades? Movement? I don't know as I am very new to miniatures gaming and X-WING, but having this facility sure does help!
How did you find my response so quickly? Or was it "bumped" to the top of your list?
