Can you have more than 12 (3 - 4 tools) in a game. And if so, how would you place them on your player board. We are thinking that the limit is twelve.

the limit is 12 - but you may still place a worker on the tool hut to block other players from tooling it up.

I'd assume the limit is 12. I've never seen anyone pass 11 tools, and that was in a 2P game -- I think the highest I've seen in 4P is 8 tools.

There are 10 market cards, one +Tool card, and approximately 10-12 rounds in the typical 4P base game.

That's 21-23 opportunities for tools. Not all of them will fall to the same player, though. But someone would have to exceed 50% of the opportunities to take a tool to get there, and they probably have better things to be doing at least some of that time.

And then everyone would think you were a toolshake.

I once got 12 tools - in a 4-player-game. And I won. It's not so bad at all.

I should hope so, because if your opponents let you get 10+ tools (and especially those 2x tool multipliers), they're doing something wrong.
