On page 14 of the rule book (end game and scoring) it shows a score of 7 points (row B) for the longest sequence of identical Seasons.
1) Does “sequence” mean the cards have to be next to each other or just anywhere on the row of your print?
2) If the player scoring on page 14 also had two print cards each with a storm icon, only one of those cards could have been used to increase the scoring for B (sequence scoring) for a total of 8 points rather than 7 points. Correct?
3) A sequence of storm cards could be used for the sequence scoring instead of using the other seasons for that scoring. Correct?
1. The cards have to be next to each other (without any cards between them with other seasons on it). The sequence is a row of cards 'touching' each other with the same season symbol on it. A card with storm symbol is a 'wild card' and may count as any season.
2. Any card you add to your print with a storm symbol on it can help you increase your sequence if you place in a way that they are part of the sequence;
3. You don't want to score a sequence of storm symbols imo. There's always a season symbol on at least the left side of the storm row. Scoring that season (with counting each storm symbol as that season) will make a longer sequence.
For instance, at the end of your game your print shows the following symbols in this order:
Summer, winter, winter, fall, storm, storm, fall, winter, winter, spring, summer, winter.
Your longest sequence is 4: fall, storm, storm, fall
If you have one storm symbol, you can place it on either the first or the second fall symbol, thus giving you a winter sequence of 5: 2 winters and 3 storms.
If you managed to gain two storm tokens during the game and you place them on both fall symbols, you will have a winter sequence of 8: 2 winters, 4 storms and again 2 winters.
If you managed to get all three the storm tokens, you can even expand the sequence to 9 by placing this third storm token on the first summer symbol or on the spring symbol.
