Does anyone know why the game has 32 rubies but only uses 31?

For 5 players you need:

12 rubies on the Gemstone Dealer
7 on the Sultan's Palace
4 on the Small Mosque
4 on the Large Mosque
5 on the Wainwright

Which adds up to 32 rubies.

Because 31 backwards is 13, which is considered by most to be bad luck. However, 32 backwards is 23, which is Michael Jordan's old jersey number from his time on the Bulls, the jerseys were red, like rubies. I mean it makes total sense if you let it.

Of course I've been up all night! Not because of caffeine, it was insomnia. I couldn't stop thinking about coffee.

Sounds like the premise of another smash hit from Dan Brown

We always put the 32nd ruby on the Gemstone Dealer. Specifically, the slot beside his left elbow.

Well, it's better than having 32 feathers in your brand new Indian headdress!
