Hi
Is there a tie breaker?
I didnt find one.
Our last game ended Istanbul 27 - Venice 27 - Valencia 26 - Genua 19.
We used money as tie breaker (ending in a Venice victory), but since money itself is worth victory points, this could as well have been a draw - after 4h playing time...

Since each 500 turns into a VP, money left over seems like a good tiebreaker. Nothing wrong with a tie, though. Two people end up happy.

so, money = fractional VP.
(100 = 0.2 VP)
yes, why not.
But nothing in the rules itself?

Not that I can see. I play that ships and forts are worth 1/2 point at the end of the game, but that's just a house rule.

as there is a reprint in the works, with overhauled rules, there may be a tiebreaker in the works too.

Does your religion have lightsabers? Nope? Didn't think so.
