As I mentioned in another thread, we misunderstood the rules for ships sinking and it cost our last place player a milestone.

I had a few ideas for compensating her for the mistake ranging from giving her 2 extra glory at the beginning of our next game or giving her
Spoiler (click to reveal)
The benefit from the milestone she would have earned.


What do you guys think should be done that wouldn't affect the balance of the game too much?

I don't think this game is razor-balanced. You can probably do whatever feels fair to your group.

I'd prefer to add any glory to the campaign total rather than next game's total, though, just to avoid cutting the next game short.

If the player who actually achieved the milestone got a permanent upgrade, you might give the player that missed it as compensation a permanent upgrade instead of the glory.

I do agree that any bonus glory you deal out should go to the campaign total and not just a kickstart for the next game.

It really comes down to what your group thinks is fair.

I agree with this.

She gets the glory added to her total. The next game is unchanged in glory. The benefit from the milestone is given the next game at the same time she otherwise would have gotten it - IF it is a temporary upgrade. IF it is permanent upgrade she gets it immediately.
