As in Troyes, there is no tie breaker. Which I really like, cause I think tie-breakers are stupid :p shared victories are way nicer.

I already posted my house-rule suggestion on another thread asking the same thing, but I repeat it below. Please give your opinions.

I would house rule that the tie is broken by the following, in order:

1) number of exhibition tokens a player has, with a later year taking precedence over an earlier year.

2) total monetary market worth (defined by the final state of the market grid) of all of the artworks in possession

3) number of buildings constructed

4) number of assistants not residing in the courthouse

5) number of noble materials in possession

6) amount of money in possession.

If there is still a tie, the score is shared.

The idea behind this tie-breaking scheme is that (in harmony with the theme) we favor the most renowned/famous benefactor of 'art nouveau'. Having won many exhibitions, especially recent ones, will be valued and prominent in the news. Having the most valuable collection is also appreciated by connoisseurs, whereas having many assistants talking to the police is somewhat frowned upon (but not too much, since only the nosiest reporters will have the latest scoop).

Since buildings are considered OP by some, I don't want to give it the very highest precedence in my tie-breaking scheme. But thematically, having constructed many buildings is visible to everyone on the streets.

I actually like it when a game is THAT close... that a tie-breaker scenario is needed to decide the winner! Sometimes there are games that are still tied even after this (I'm very good with that, and THOSE tied games are very sweet because it's so rare when that happens.

A tie without at least one tie-break condition can sometimes feel a little anti-climactic for me.
