So long, ridiculous Mayfair timing icons. You had a good run, and you certainly have your fans, but Fantasy Flight's 50-times-better timing strip is pretty much putting an end to your alleged usefulness.
You didn't "save" Cosmic Encounter, just for the record; that's one of the biggest myths in gaming history. And your errata, if anyone had bothered to compile it, would have been a hefty document. Still, you weren't all bad, I suppose. Maybe you helped settle a rules argument or two. I wouldn't know; I was too busy fondling my Eon collection.
Godspeed, goofy timing icons. Go in peace.
