I searched for a clarification about this on this forum and could find nothing specific so forgive me if it is on here and I missed it.
We played our first game of DOW and were wondering if we need to pay food if there's only ONE survivor in the colony. The rule book says to pay 1 food for every TWO survivors but it says "rounded up". Do we round up from one survivor counting one survivor as two survivors?
We played that if there was only one survivor we ignored paying food. We only paid 1 food if there were two or more and rounded up from there - paying two food tokens for three survivors, and 3 tokens for five survivors, etc. However, thematically it seems that even if there's one survivor at the colony they need to eat...so...
Did we do this correctly?
Thematically and rulewise wrong...
