Reality might not get out of Beta today - O.Timas

So far, I have not been disappointed by the efforts of Looney Labs.

C:EA continues that trend. Designed as both a stand alone, and to be combined with the original Chrononauts game, it both keeps the simple design and the complex strategising of the original, and builds on it by introducing a single new card-type.

In play, it behaves similarly to the original, but the gadgets add some options to speed the game in some circumstances. These include the ability to play a second 'Action' type card, to have a second Mission or ID, or to play all your artifacts at once!

The new time-line, from 1770 to 1916, can be added to the original time-line, and optional cards are included for when you do so. We did not try this option out this time.

All-in-all, it looks to have the same high re-play value of the original, with some useful refinements.

8.5/10 (only losing points due to not being something completely new) and a new jacket that you keep finding pockets in on the Sid & Nancy scale.

I'm smiling. That alone should scare you.

Did your set contain the card that tells you how to combine the two sets?

Mine claimed to have one but didn't.

It does indeed!

It is a card called 'Inverter Converter', and is actually a rules-card, not a play-card.

Kind of evil, that way!

OK I'll look for it again - which deck is it in?

Found it!

Did you read the back? It looks evil.

1. Two identities, two missions.
2. You must meet all three of the victory conditions - turn the mission & ID cards face up once you do (& discard the artefacts), get a token once you hit 10 cards.

Could be a long game...

Sigh. Spammers again. Can all threads be set to autolock after a period of time? A month or so?
