Hey there

Why starts George Al Caldwell (Scott) with 4 Cards and Ferry Llistenberg (Amundsen) only with 3 Cards?
The same with Marvin McRayne (Scott) remove the first two Dogs and Öte Petersson (Amundsen) just remove the first horse?

Isn't that an Advantage for Scott???

Thanks

Hi!

Amundsen always start the game, with the Patrons "George Al Caldwell" and "Ferry Llistenberg" the author wanted to compensate for that.

About "Marvin McRayne" and "Öte Petersson", the game contain 9 Dogs and 4 Horses. It is balanced to kill twice as many dogs as horses.

The game is asymmetrical. More red cards than blue, more dogs than horses, more crevasses than blizzards, Amundsen always start the game...

Despite that, the winning percentage is very similar (maybe Amundsen 51% vs Scott 49%). It is a very well balanced game.
