Hi all,

so this may be a stupid question, but still. Is there a set number of rounds? There are 9 rounds on the board I think, does the game end after the 9th even if the truce cards are not played?

I know the rules state that the game ends after all sides have played their truce cards, but that round track is making me question the game end triggers.

Thanks!

Note that since cards are used once they are played, at some point there will be nothing left but truce cards, and you'll be forced to play them.

Yeah, I know, but I just played a game where we had to play a 10th round to play the truce cards. Maybe we messed something up. It was stil fun though

There are eight movement cards for each faction. Each player plays a movement card on their turn. If a player does not have a movement card in hand, they are to discard the hand and re-draw. Perhaps you had some turns without movement cards?

And yes, this is a fun game. Just played yesterday myself!

There are a max of 8 rounds in the game.

It is not physically possible for the game to last longer than 8.

You MUST play a movement card each turn, and by doing so, no later than the end of turn 8, all the Truce cards will have been played.

Maybe we moved the pawn 2 rounds ahead instead of one, I don't know. We played a movement card every round.

But thanks for the clarification, I was always wondering about the number of rounds Now it makes sense.

They were 2 against me and they won with 6 colonies against my 5 (I fell short of another move to squeeze in a tie at least). It was the first board game one of the friends ever played and he had an absolute blast Great game!
