One of the hardest-to-learn rules of playing RPGs is the fact that there is such a thing as too many players. I learned this the hard way, from running a game for eleven people, and frankly, nobody enjoyed it as much as they could have. The ideal number of players can be extended to the question of an ideal team size, as well. As wonderful as the nine members of the ‘Firefly’ crew are, we still didn’t get as much depth as I would have liked for all of them, leading to today’s ensemble query.
The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) leans towards the standard Super Sentai form of 5/6 members, asking: What number of ensemble members is the ideal team size for you?
