House Rules

These are rules that will alter the game balance in favour of one side or the other. If you find the game unfair after several tries once you are familiar with the game please try these suggested tweaks of the rules.

The Second Edition of the game is more well balanced than the First Edition but if you feel inclined to tilt the balance one way or another please feel free to try, and please tell us on the message board how it went.
