What if everybody plays cards of the same rank? We had a 3-player game where we all played a "5". I couldn't figure out who was high or low...

Re:Rules Question
themore5@earthlink (#32904),

Firstly, you determine the winner of the trick. In this case, it is the last person to play a 5, because in the case of ties for the highest, the last one played is the higher. This player will win all the cards except their own 5.

Then you determine the loser of the trick, which in this case will the second-last person to play a 5. In the case of ties for the lowest card, the last one played is the lower. They take the winning player's card to their score pile.

So if Alan, Bob, Carol & Dave all play 5s, Dave wins the first three and Carol wins Dave's 5.

David & Goliath is an excellent card game and I'm very pleased it is back in print.

Not sure how you come to this conclusion from reading the rules. Why should you determine the highest card first? Why shouldn't the first determination be the lowest card? Why can't you look at the rule "the last card played of the lowest number is considered the loser and takes the highest card."? And from that determine that the last 5 played is actually the lowest card?

Can we get a clarification from the designer or game testers?

According to the online rule (http://www.playrooment.com/Default.aspx?tabid=760),

Quote:
If all players play the same value card, then the last player to play their card is considered the highest of the same value cards, and the second to last player to play their card is the lowest of the same value cards.


Hope this helps.
