Greetings chummers,

I just started playing the game, in fact, I've only played 3 times, and
with equally inexperienced players. I have a few questions about the
objectives pile.

What exactly happens if you run out of objectives? I haven't had this
happen, but it has come close. In a 3 player game, one of the players'
objectives were always more tempting than the others (urban brawls, etc...)
and so 5 of the 6 were taken before the game ended. What happens if the 6
objectives get taken? Does the player re-shuffle his objective pile and
start over? or does he just no longer play objectives?

Also, is there a limit on the size of the objective pile? From my
understanding of the rules, it is limited to 6, but I've seen mention of
300 pt games, which would be VERY difficult to play with only 6 objectives
each, even for 4 players.

Thanks for the help,

Rigger Extraordinaire!
