It is set up like a 3-player game, however only 25 fish crates.
1) How do dock cards work? Since they are 2 per player, is this treated like a 3-player game so there are 6 total? (I assumed yes) or am I considered the only player so there's only 2 of each dock card since the Captains will never buy them anyway.

2) Pacific Oyster Boats and Captains. The captains get fish VP as if their boats are at full capacity. If they have 1 or more Pacific Oyster licenses, is the full capacity of each Pacific Oyster Boat according to the number of licenses they have? Or is it still always a max of 4, not considering the license.



Thanks! Loving this game so far!

Great questions.
Put 4 of a dock card out since the captains won't be buying them.

Pacific Oyster boats:
For the captains assume those boats each max out at 6. If a captain ends up with two or more Pac Oyster Licenses though adjust that number up accordingly.

Why 4 of each dock card? I would have expected either 2 or 6:
- 2 if based on number of players (1)
- 6 if including the solo play characters TC and Kirkman

So, why "4"?

My guess is a middle ground. It's a balance between having "3 players", but only one of them (you) can buy them. In a true 3-player game, you could possibly buy more than 2 if noone else does.

Just my guess.

That was the thought process. Thanks!
