We had our first game last night.
Five players who had never played Libertalia before. We obviously played like beginners, and somehow never realized that the green player had his gambler alive for a whole campaign, and stuff like that.

One player had some horrible mid-game luck, getting hit by three beggars, and so on, scoring 60-ish points. We had two players at 80 points, and med at 81. And then there was that green player. Who got 129!

I don't think we messed up the rules. Instead, we played like beginners/idiots, alloweing the green player to do all of that.

So, back to the subject question: How much to you typically score in Libertalia?

Oh, by the way, we loved the game!

It's so varied because of the card options, but maybe 40s on the low end and 100s on the high end is typical.

It obviously depends heavily on the card draw, but a winning score for us is normally around 70-90. I have only broken 100 once and 129 is possible but freakishly high. I would suggest you were not being mean enough to the green player - it's a really bad idea to try to play this game passively.

You did clear out all the played cards after each week, right?

Yes. When I wrote campaign, I meant week.
And as you say, we were way to nice to the green player. Everyone else got attacked plenty, but he slipped under the radar all the time somehow...
