Hey everyone,

I really enjoyed playing this game a few times so far. My questions is regarding the token, that makes pirates +2 stronger for everyone else.

when not defeating the pirates, will you also lose vp including the +2 from the token?

example: pirates have a strength of 10. pirate token makes them 12 for everyone except the player with the token. I have only 10 cannons, so I lose all the cannons and also lose 12 vp? or is it 10 vp?

p.

I would say 12 VP. The pirates are +2 points stronger and meaner.

I think with 10 Cannons, you would still not lose points.

I played my first Amerigo game yesterday and this question also came to my mind. The rules say that you lose points if you drop down to zero and would lose more i think.

Furthermore, the rules say that the strength of the pirates is raised by +2 for every other player. So it would only be 10 for you.

Hope my clarification was of help.

If your the player with the token and you have 10 cannons your fine.

If your not the player with the token you need 12 cannons or

you will loose 12 vp and all 10 of your cannons.

the strength is only increased for other players. you would only lose 10VPs.

Keep in mind Patrick seems to be assuming control of the +2 Pirate marker in his OP. So he would not lose the 10 points, as everyone has thought, because the rules say if you go to zero and "still has not matched the Pirates' strength", then he would lose the points. He does match the Pirates, in his example. The German rules read the same.

So the correct answer is, no, he would not lose the points (second poster, Sebz, seems to answer this correctly).
