Subject: Too many points in Home Town? rss

I feel like Home Town gives too many fans relative to other game modes, which give at most 5 points.

You receive the 5/3/1 based on height then the bonus fan for placing same color/shape. There is the up to -5 penalty for fallen pieces, but the majority of that usually hits the person whose structure collapsed so they didn't have that many points to lose in the first place.

(I think our first Home Town was something like 15/8/2)

Originally the base game was just the Home Town mode and then when you finished Home Town - you'd go out on a World Tour and play with the other cities. Then we decided to just include it in the World Tour as well and let players decide whether or not they'd like to include it.

Thanks for asking...and playing!!

I see. That makes sense. I like Home Town but I'll probably just play it separate from the others. Thank you!

We usually play with Home Town as the last city. It makes for a good "catch-up city" for anyone trailing in scoring.
