Are Mysterious Objective Markers good for our game or are they a waste of time?
I am now well into playing a few games with 6th Edition, and the one thing that I have experienced problems with, are Mysterious objectives! I was just wondering how every one else was doing with this new addition to our game? Personally, I actually like the 'idea' of random objectives, but in reality, I have found them to be nothing more that just something else to do and remember in the game.
It became quickly apparent that we either forget to roll for the effect, or forget to use the marker after we knew what it did! Even to the point where we have thought about ignoring the random abilities and using them as standard objectives instead. It is also amazing how easy it is to forget an objectives effect when it is a bad one, but easily remember it when it benefits you!
Maybe it's just because we have so much more to remember now, like rolling Night Fight on turn five onwards if it's doesn't happen turn one, rolling and remembering our Warlord Traits, rolling and remembering any new Psychic Powers, and of course, keeping track of the mission victory points, and that's all without throwing in some random terrain features as well!
So what do you think of Mysterious Objectives and how are you remembering to do everything?
