You absolutely MUST scale them in small groups. Cards too.


For my curiosity, how big are your groups, and do all the cosm cards get played?


One to three characters, and due to constraints, sorta. Sometimes I just handout possibilities without actually playing out the card (player has to turn it in).

Should have specified "just for us grognards"

I was running new people through Torg (the 20-somethings) in early 2000s. One found that WEG had been sold and I looked at the forum discussions. I knew I was not going to like where those plans were headed. I was never going to give 2.0. a chance. Plans were not good imo. Didn't even buy r&e. I am actually not sad 2.0 failed, Although I am sorry that owner himself was a big fan who basically bankrupted himself trying to get Torg going again. (At least from what I recall).

Back in middle 90s I went to Germany about 4 times. Found Das Schwarze Auge there. Bought some box sets and 2 of the miniature board games. Dragon cavern, and village of horror (my bad translation). With the help of a German, I translated the rules (also badly). But was inspired by them. Have much respect for Ulisses Spiele.

So, when I heard Torg had been bought by them my thought was,"damn, those Germans are going to have a great game." Didn't realize USNA was a thing until the sneak peeks.

The company and those peeks made me realize it was worth buying.

I would have had to learn to speak German. Not exaggerating.

At different times in my life, I knew Spanish, Ancient Greek, Latin, and Russian. I attempted German and failed. Reading, I can get maybe 20 percent. Listening, I always wondered who was about to die, when at breakfast smeone asked to pass the bread.
