Every homo sapiens needs an outbuilding within the curtelage of their property
Welcome...to my Shed!
I am sorry, but I really do not understand how the scoring with the surveyors works.
At game end, the last station has no marker on it (the last track was excavated and built in the same (and thus last) turn). So... no surveyor gives any point, right?
Yes. To earn points from the Devil's Shingles a player wants to have a marker in each station.
If both players (we always play 2-player games) have markers on the last station, chances are that each player also have at least a marker on each on the stations, all the way down to Marshfield. So they both have 11 points?
We just do not see the interest of having 0/0 or 11/11 or 0/11 (if a player is unlucky enough to miss his/her last building action).
That's just an oddity for the 2 player version; for more, it gives a nice incentive for more points - especially if you're making use of Old Peppersass for stone discounts when building!
Also, I do not get the scoring from Contract card 29. The numbers are... what? The stations from the top? The number of the station from the bottom?
The (small) number in the top right corner of the station card.
About the snow. Am I right?
I find the highest square-with-a-shovel that has a number of rubble cubes inferior to the starting number (empty or partially empty, with or without an ownership marker). I count (toward the foot of the mountain) the number of spaces equal to the current excavation rate. I put two cubes on all these spaces except the station-card spaces with ownership tokens.
Is there anything wrong with my understanding?
You are correct, yes!
Thank you very much. We like this game very much, and would like to play it correctly.
