There Can Be Only One! The Wrong One!

I have always played this as the Automa (Autometta) skips it's turn, gains nothing and if there is a Star on the turn I have advanced the Star Tracker as normal.

However, the Online Simulator (http://ai.nagy.tech/scythe/) appears not to advance the Star Tracker, so my question is: Have I been playing it wrong, or is the Tracker advancement step missing from the Simulator?

Autometta skips the entire turn, so the Star Tracker should not be advanced.

Thank you Morten. I appreciate your quick reply - I was misinterpreting the rules regarding the number of Automa cards with Stars on having to match the position of the Star Tracker marker.

It makes more sense to me now, and perhaps, with a few more "free" turns I might be able to stand a better chance of winning.

That's a good point, we should have added a note about counting the number of cards with stars, when using Autometta.

Yeah, that should help a lot. Even a few extra turns makes a big difference, because your engine should have become very efficient by the end of the game.
