-10 point for ALL unfed peoples - skewness. People can not feed at all, and give resources for food - do stupid (why this rule in this situation?)

-10 point for EACH unfed people - good and not have skewness.

Official rules - with skewness? No any amendments?


When playing together - critical. It turns scheme - for food does not necessarily follow, if the number goods outweighs 10 points. Ie here the main task is blocking / taking all possible cards and houses for resources. Arable land - for the second time and put people on food - do not need.

Short answer: You are riding beating a dead horse.

Long answer: This topic is discussed in more detail that I am fond of. Take a day off and take a tour through the Stone Age forum here and read the numerous threads discussing this.
If you are really plucky search for "Starvation stategy" or if extremly stout hearted write a post with "Starvation stategy" in the title.

Hunger strategy!

(although I don't usually play this strategy, I consider the rule valid, as not feeding your people for one or two turns at a critical time in the game is often tactically sound, and can help offset an early lucky streak by another player).

Or else... House rule variant that have been used once or twice...

You loose everyone of your family that you don't feed, so then you have to breed more to get get back your family. This does actually kill any starving or non starving strategy!!! And is highly effective with players who doesn't care.

He means go to the Stone Age forums, and read everything with "starvation" or "hunger" or "food" in it until you are sick of the subject.

I absolutely agree with you Wolfram, but at the risk of sounding pedantic, the expression is "beating a dead horse." In the U.S., at least.

The English expression is, 'Flogging a dead horse' but I think we all get the gist.

At Wikipedia, a dispute about notability of a living person who asks not to be listed in Wikipedia was called "Pounding the greasy spot on the ground where the dead horse was".

No offense taken. I am quite comfortable in my English however sometimes my non-nativeness shines through. modest

BTW Wasn't there a person famous for butchering proverbs?

I don't know, I kind of like the malapropism.

Perhaps we can assign a meaning to it.

I'll suggest that "Riding a dead horse" could be used as slang "being funded by a failing organization that is in its last days." Example: Politician X is gaining in the polls, but he's just riding a dead horse.

It could also be used for "stubbornly making an argument that is widely discredited."
