Just started to play the game and the rules say ,if you don't have enough money to pay the crew ,take it from the surples coins.

If most of the crew is yours ,it's not much of a penelty
(you still get 1 by be 2 booty counters)

I would think making the player "PAWN IN" his booty counter(s) to pay the crew would be a better penelty.

Would this work ......?

Well, you don't know what the booty counter is worth until the end of the game. It might be worth just 1 ducat.

As it is, the system is making the player go down to "zero" money before the bank gets involved. And, just for clarification, no one collects money for their own crew members, so it's not like the bank is going to pay the player because he doesn't have enough money to pay his own people.

And if you go for "pawn in" the booty counter INSTEAD of the bank paying off people, does that mean if the booty counter's pawn value is not enough that people don't get paid?

Or...

Were you going to avoid both the question of booty value AND people not getting paid by just having the player turn in the booty if he/she is out of money and the bank pays whatever is needed?

I think I'm going to key off the "just started to play the game" comment.

Why not give the rules a chance, as written, and see how that works? There actually have been some games played, both by the company, the playtesters, and the people who have purchased the game in the last 2+ years since the game came out.

Maybe give the system a chance before fixing it?

Fair comments.
Did not think that the booty counter could just be worth 1 as you said.
Thanks for your reasoning.
