    Hey dude - actually, we tried it out a bunch of times with different results - but the general consensus was that it wasnt as fun as standard TACOS (or TACOS MK.II). The biggest issue was the cards work better when they are catalysts to drive the action - if you don't have an idea of what your opponent is doing as the TACOS cards are secret information - the game slows down considerably, we found.

    I'd encourage you to try it out for yourself and let me know what you think.

    Okay bought the cards and had our first game. Made a classic knuckle headed error and had 8 objectives (4 for both of us) which meant my midfield madness I had planned with dart and friends was pretty much squashed due to exclusion zones.
    Enjoyed the changing goals though and if we get use to this it will definitely change our list choices as we try to take the best mix that can hit the most potential points.
    Exclusion zone even with 4 objectives feels a little bit punitive to midfield lists but I'll admit too early to say definitely. Also I was playing aleph oss which I really suck with and in general think are just a meh sectoria .

    We just played a few games with this in the last month or so up here in Thunder Bay and we've really enjoyed it. The shifting state of the game is a lot of fun and encourages a broad list. I'm going to show some more players in the next few weeks.

    Hey guys - just a quick heads up for those of you playing in Asteroid Blues with TACOS instead of classified cards. Our community has been playing using both (the scenario and the TACOS cards) and so far it has been great - that way if the Salsa Gods aren't in your favour, you can always go for the main object of the scenario!

    Just throwing it out there.

    That's a great idea! I didn't think of combining the two - we'll try that tomorrow, I think.

    For your information, while writing an article about this mod, I saw that the link to Printer Studio was dead.

    Hey there, so the HVT and the Intelligence Op are basically the same thing? The IO doesn't do anything else that the HVT doesn't do, correct?

    yep, just different so you can place them in two spot and each card will call out a specific one.

    I was going to say same as console/crate but those actually have different Sil size.
