Is there any reason that coins aren't just worth their printed value? We wanted to simplify scoring a bit and just said count the coins for what they are. Is there any reason why we shouldn't do this?

I suppose this is an incentive for you to build new icons on your attractions even at game's end. If coins were worth victory points just as much as face value, why would you even bother paying, let's say, 10 or even more for an upgrade that only adds one single icon? Better to just hoard the coins...

Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.

Exactly. By giving coins 1 VP each, you are devaluing everything else and making it not worth the cost to buy upgrades or attractions.

To convince yourself about why this is needed, try the gangster pack and go for an offshore account + casino strategy.

We're working on a scoring web-page / app at the moment, to make the end-of-game scoring as easy as possible, with almost all of the calculation taken care of. You will be able to simply enter the number of coins and receive the correct number of points.

I had to think about this, but yes that does indeed make sense! Haha, thank you. My group was so intent on building their best park regardless that no one even considered that fact.

An app will be great once I've finished off the scoring pad that came with the game. I think I'm about half way through it. (Just please make sure it keeps a long term record of games played and their scores)
