The scenario "The Survivors" mentions two different "packs" of tiles: A and B. The scenario says:
"Remove the EXIT tile (29) and the PENTACLE tile (26) from the A pack of tiles and set them aside."
"Shuffle the other tiles and form a B pile."
The other scenarios also mention the A and B packs (and some more), so I am guessing the kinds of tiles that are in the two packs are important for scenario balance.
How do I tell which tiles belong to the A and B packs so I can recreate them after a game?
I don't see a letter A or B in the tile corner. Just its number. The rule book does not list the tiles per pack. Indeed, the rulebook doesn't even mention the term "pack" in connection with the tiles...
My thought is that there is no tile distinction. I think that maybe a typo. So my interpretation is as follows:
"Remove the EXIT tile (29) and the PENTACLE tile (26) from the pack of tiles and set them aside. Shuffle the remaining tiles to form the draw pile."
Yes, that is how it is in the old version of the game. Maybe you are right and this is just a relic of an old version of the rules. It would be good to get an official reply from Monolith.
I think the "A", "B", "C" reference is just book keeping while you build the draw pile. It's a case where trying to be even more explicit and clarifying it completely muddies the waters.
Yeah, maybe. I think this wording would have left less room for doubt:
"Set aside the EXIT tile (29) and the PENTACLE tile (26). Shuffle the remaining tiles and place them in one pile."
But hindsight is always 20/20, as the saying goes.
If there is no specific mention at starts, the A pack of tiles means all the tiles from the box.
After that, all pack of tiles is "labeled" after modification to use it later
Maybe it's obvious for the 1st scenario but we tried to apply the same idea for all other scenarios, so to be consistent, there is a A and B pack of tiles in "The survivors" 😉
