If a player wants several things then they can pick the bundles that contain them, so nothing taken away.

However I think that we might have a fundamental disagreement about what 'taking away' means, is that so?

I backed at Star Colonel, so IIRC after the base set I get to choose any 10 lance/star packs, plus a faction pack.

There are in total 19 lance/star packs and 30 faction packs

I could choose 10 of the same one, 2 each of 5 different ones, 10 different ones, or many other combinations.

By the time you add in the faction pack it's entirely possible that no other Star Colonel backer will chose exactly the same things as me, and that's before you get to any add-ons!

How can you simplify that sort of order complexity without taking away choices, or am I misunderstanding?
