So, after playing Warp’s Edge and finding the experience technically interesting but narratively lacking, I pulled out Under Falling Skies. I played a quick game to reacquaint myself with the rules, and then hauled out Chapter One.
So… spoilers, I suppose, if you haven’t played Chapter One yet. Like me.
Because I ran smack into the same problem I had last time. The rules say to create two piles with random heroes, scenarios, and cities… but there are 4 of each in Chapter one! And all four of them are on the “Crisis Map” in the scenario, but only two of them are described… but is that because those (Montreal and Havana-ooh-na-na) are the only ones that require rules clarifications? So am I supposed to just use those two cities, and return the other two (I forget what they are), or am I supposed to put 2 cities in each of the piles? Or am I supposed to randomly pick two cities and then put one random hero and scenario (from all 4 of each) on those two cities and return everything else to the box for the next time?
… I don’t get it.
