Here's the scenario:
Player 1 has played Red trees, and has the Red 8 in his hand.
Player 2 hasn't played Red trees, but has the Red 1 and 4 in his hand.
Player 3 has played Red trees, and has the Red 6 in his hand.
Does Player 3 get to score Red as they have the highest score, even though it was Player 2 who had the Red 1? I wasn't sure if the 1 trumping the 8 only came into play between 2 players who had actually played Red cards.
My understanding is that player 3 will score their tree.
The rule is (translated from French)
If a player has the 8 in their hand and another player has the 1 of the same color in theirs, the value of the 8 is reduced to 0. The 1 is always worth 1.
Yup, player 3 will score red.
Great, thanks guys - that's how I understood the rule but it feels slightly odd another player can indirectly help you without meaning to!
