We played for the first time yesterday, and we were wondering if it's possible for a player to find and deliver a treasure, and then find a second treasure and just drive around with it in order to keep it from the other player(s). Does anybody know if that's a legal strategy?

I would imagine this goes against the spirit of the game...

But a valid question!

Might need an errata to where you can't dig once you find a Treasure marker.

If it is not in the rules that you cannot do this, it definitely should be.

I can't imagine any sane play group that would allow that to happen. I thought I read somewhere, but I am probably mistaken, that you could only dig up 1 treasure.

Regardless, no, not a legal strategy because it is bending an unwritten rule to become "that guy".

Take that mechanics are prevelant in a lot of games. Being that guy could also be called trying to win, which is pretty much the point of the game.

But those game are clear up front about whether they are a "take that" game or not. WEDS is not such a game.

Either way, we got our official response. A player is not allowed to collect a second treasure.

Which is why the rules should be more clear.

I would be very surprised if the person who tried that would win, so it seems pretty pointless.

The point of games for a lot of people is to have fun. Not just to win. whistle

I guess you missed the words "pretty much" in my comment.

Each game has a goal or objective. 9.9 times out of 10, that goal or objective is to win. (or at least the goals or objectives allow you to win, if completed)
