Hi everyone,

This is some advance warning that these forums will be closing shortly. The last day will be the 17th December 2018. We have noticed over the past couple of years that traffic on the forum and regular users have both decreased. As a result we’ve taken the difficult decision to close the forums. We’ll still be able to answer rules questions via social media and we’ll produce articles on the Mantic Blog too.

Many thanks to all of you for your contributions and conversations on the pages here. Special thanks are extended to the moderators who have kept things ticking over for us in the background.

If there is any content you wish to keep, please download and save it before the final closing date.

  • Crossbow & Equipment question

    I've had this game for a while and I'm finally getting around to playing it. I just finished running through the five solo scenarios for "Days Gone By." I have all the expansions so I treated all of the equipment cards as available.

    The Crossbow seems to me to be the best item in the game. It's a bargain at 22 points, has a 20" range, has the Reliable keyword, and causes neither Noise nor Mayhem. I may try the scenarios again and "ban" the Crossbow because it sometimes felt like easy mode.

    Do any of you guys restrict available equipment to the core set and cards that came with the specific expansion you're playing?

    I prefer bows over fire arms anytime, however I think the CB uses an extra action to reload. As for all the equipment, I like the amount of choice to customise the characters. Better have it and not need it then need it and not have it. But if you find something might not fit, just swap or leave it out as you please. This game is about having fun without the rocket science.
