I protect the sheep in our society from the wolves.
1. I think you've misunderstood the symbol on the Treachery card. By removing one of your figures you get to remove one of each opponents figures from either the hex you are in or in a hex adjacent to your figures. In a two player game you only have one opponent so you can only remove one figure. Oh...and you can only use this power if you have more than 3 figures on the board yourself.
2. The rules state that you are never allowed to look in your bag, but you are allowed to feel how many cubes you have left at any time.
3. They are only worth 1 point each
4. Here's a couple: Always know if your cubes are getting low and if you need to throw a couple of extra cubes in the bag so you don't waste a turn drawing just one. To thin out the number of cubes in the bag, pick up a card that uses the gray cubes...or one with the 'infinity' symbols on it so you don't have to throw them back in the bag when you reset.
Hope that helps!
Thanks Paul, that was very helpful.
