Card setup choices menu

Post by towehaal » 11 December 2020, 18:50

So with Rebellion in Beta, there is a lot more choices for the card setups in the menu.

What do all these setups do? We used to just go with Random, but wouldn't mind mixing it up!

I would like to know the distribution of cards for each setup as well.
I played some game in Random setup with the expansion, and there are some cards I have never seen yet, are they all implemented (besides those belonging to the Titan module) ?

Thanks for the list, very useful.

I've created a suggestion to include this information in some way when setting up a table: https://boardgamearena.com/bug?id=34408

Hi

not that I don't want to do it but there is nothing in the framework to be able to do that on the game setup... :(
Only thing I could do will be to add the pictures on DF presentation but that's all...

What do you think?

That's unfortunate. What do you mean by pictures on the presentation?

The framework apparently supports explanatory texts; is it not possible to add a link there to a document on the BGA server and/or at the very least a short description of what the set focusses on? (e.g. May the forge be with you [link to image]: "this set contains a lot of cards that allow you to forge die faces without having to perform a Forge action, like The Merchant and The Ancestor")

Could it be added to the wiki page: https://en.doc.boardgamearena.com/Gamehelpdiceforge ?

Also does the Random option include Rebelion (cards only) cards if enabled?

Hi

Doing my necromancer :)
If I put a description to the setup, what would you like to have (in term of text)? the list of cards, something else?
