Re:Can you run out of vineyard chips?
Well, there are 103 locations on the board and each player has 40 chips. If you use one for each reagion, one for the windrose and two for selecting your region, then there are 28-31 chips left for each player. With three players, you can't cover the board with what's remaining. This is the situation we saw. Two players were running out of chips. I lost vineyards to recover chips from the variety locations and at the final round the other player took chips off of his variety locations to mark vineyards.
My main problem is that one line in the rules. But I can't find anything that says if you should use a different color or run out of chips. Why do players need to see how many I have remaining if I have an unlimited amount?
I think the boards too big for 3 players anyways, so I'll probably play without the last region in the next 3 player game. I think that'll solve both these problems.
