My argument is that unless the number of cards for an Overlord scenario is specified in the rules for that scenario, it's never clear how many you should use.

IMHO, due to the very nature and availabilty of the air pack expansions, I don't believe there is a right or wrong answer. I think the number of AS cards you use is by and large, up to you. Smile

That's just the simple beauty of Memoir 44', which again IMHO, is one of the all time best board wargame designs ever put forth.

The way the air rules read for a normal game is 2 AS cards per regular game deck of cards. The overlord expansion is just a double set of game cards with 2 AS cards per deck. If you used 6 AS cards, that amounts to only 1 more AS card per deck of game cards. If you played an overlord with just 2 total AS cards, that would amount to just 1 less AS card per deck than the overlord expansion cards.

There are a lot of folks, myself included, who have purchased doubles on a lot of the expansions. That's good for sales for Days of Wonder, and any good business. The way I see the air pack expansion, I think it's a stretch that Days of Wonder would have made it so players would need to purchase 3 copies of the air pack to play overlord games. But like any good company, they made it possible if certain players were willing to!

So the end result is this super flexible set of air rules that basically allows all the various players out there to kinda pick and choose for themselves as far as what is right for them, and what they are willing to spend.

I say that whatever you choose to do in your overlord games is just fine regarding the numbers of AS cards used.

Just my .02 cents. Good gaming! Smile
