Why is there only 1 (-5) and 1 (-10) coat of arms chits,what if there are more than one player in last place on the charity board at the end of the game?
Two things to keep in mind:
1) There are no ties unless at space 0. Unless you're talking about space 0, the piece that is on top is considered ahead.
2) If there are more than one player at space 0, the rules say everyone gets the negative points for last place. I think if that occurs, just use a substitute or write on a piece of paper. I don't think it happens that often.
