Many members of our group have been buying the various official fate decks made by wyrd recently. The results have mostly been disappointing. The "Classic Fate Deck" has different shades of colour on the back of the cards, which is a really bad thing when your cards in hand could potentially be inferred without seeing the front. The "Arcane Fate Deck" is really hard to figure out which suit the card you are holding is, which only slows things down.
I think I got lucky when I picked the "Seriously Twisted Fate Deck" - the number and suit is clear, and the backs are consistent, and the well made box with magnetic lid leaves room to bring cards for schemes/strategies/stat cards as you wish.
In other news, got another match in yesterday. This was my Guild versus Wil's Gremlins using GG 2017. Strategy was same as last time, secure the stash. We both took claim jump and I took inspection while Wil took leave your mark. Of course I didn't know this yet...
Deployment was spread out for the Guild, concentrated for the Gremlins
|Guild were spread out, to aim at centre/flanks as necessary.|
|Gremlins mostly bunched on my right|
|Justice in murder mode while death marshal jumping around|
|Holding the left flank|
|I should learn to hold my hands steady...|
The Gremlins used late game advantages in numbers to be more aggressive and get points for strategy and the master Wong nipped across the board to pick up further points for leave your mark.
Overall very tight game which ended in a 7-7 draw.
