Hi,
I only played one game of Mysterium, but the guy explaining the rules didnt seem to know the answer. The clairvoyance track goes up to 13. Even in a perfect game, where you solve all cards at 3am, and so gain 4 points from the clock remaining time, and guess all correctly on all the tokens right and wrong, in a 6 player game, the maximum you can reach is 10 on the track.
4 for the clock and 6 for the tokens.
So why does the track goes up to 13? Is there other ways to get points?

At the start of turn 4 you get your tokens back.

Turns 1-3:
6 tokens --> 6 possible points (if you play with 4-5 players you will have 4 tokens istead of 6).
If you found your 3 cards --> +4 points (1 point per missing hour).

After the turn 3 you may have collected a maximum of 10 points at 6-7 players (and 8 points at 4-5 players).

Turns 4-7:
At the beginning of turn 4 you receive all your played tokens again (6 or 4, depending on the number of players).

It means that you can eventually score more 6 (or 4) points.

At 6-7 players you can collect a maximum of 16 points.
At 4-5 players you can collect a maximum of 12 points.

Actually, if you look at the clock, you can see the shape of a token at the fourth hour. That's a very helpful reminder.

Was taught this game tonight, and this is how it was played. The instructor did not return tokens on round 4, but we did advance on the clairvoyance track when we advanced on the progress track. Is there a previous version of this game that this is a hold over from? Just wondering where this misinformation comes from?

I can't find anywhere in the rules where it says you get a point for guess your card correctly, only that you get a point for every hour left on the clock when you finish. Please could you point me to the right place in the rulebook?

Yeah, you don't get anything for guessing correctly.
