We tried this game for the first time yesterday and we didn't have enough paper money for the 4p setup (I ended up taking some red cubes from another game to use as f25).
Did I get a defective copy? It seems strange that the game would not include enough components for the 4p and 5p setups, considering it's described as 3-5p on the box.

The game should contain:

12 x f5000
24 x f1000
24 x f500
24 x f100
24 x f25

While the rulebook says that each player gets 8 x f25, it's actually only important that each player has the correct amount of money in total.

As you can probably guess, the denominations weren't fixed until after the rules were finalised! Which is why the contents don't specify the above information...

David.

I had the same problem and, thus, have outfitted my copy with second hand poker chips.

Hi David!

My copy has exactly the money ratio that you described, but in the rules apear that this total of money is 100,000 florins, but the real sum is 99,000 florins. Is the instruction book wrong?

Thanks!
