Yesterday we played our first complete game of Bretagne after I only played a couple of rounds at Essen.
In both games we experienced a shortage of material for the ressource tokens, money and engineers.

Especially the engineers are insufficient as there are (upgraded) tiles that give you an extra engineer, but the number of engineers available in the game is exactly the number needed for the four player setup for each round - so there is no extra engineer left.
Also money was always short and we needed to constantly change althoug we did not have the 2/3 money tile in play.
The ressource tokens are not a real problem as there are multiplier tiles and/or you can easily add tokens from other games or your friendly game shop. It felt short though nonetheless.

Did you experience this shortage in your plays as well?

Yes.. the too few amount of material is the big downside of this great game... we wrote resources on a paper but it's not a good issue..

Sent a e-mail to publisher, still wait for a response.

Hello,

we played it yesterday for the first time, ...and we had to face shortage of ...everything !
Not enough money is foreseen in the box, not enough engineers, not enough resources. We have used all possible multiplicator tiles and it was not enough. We had to play at the end with money from our wallets!

Maybe we misunderstood some rules, which led to general shortage. If not, if the game was correctly played, then I find this abnormal ! This gives the impression that the game has not been tested enough to foresee the amout of material needed, or that the editor has not worked correctly ! Please put an extra punchboard and sell the game 1 euro more. This would not prevent the sales, and at least we could enjoy playing without shortage.

This should not be an issue with engineers and resources, when you pass at the end of the round each player must return all unused engineers and may only keep a max of 3 resources of ONE type.

In our 4 player game, the only shortfall was with money towards the end of the game (a lot of money was sitting on red lighthouses...).

It is with engineers by definition:
