The rules state:

Quote:
Draws are settled as follows : look which column
has the most pawns in it (e.g. a column with three brokers has the edge on a column with only two brokers).
Still not enough ? Then, the player with the highest total before their screen chooses (again, draws are settled
as in the city, using ‘Order’ cards if necessary).


Let's say this is a 4-player game. Do we look at the highest total out of all 4 players, or only out of the players who have brokers in the columns in question? Could you be the tie-breaking player even if you had no brokers in the market at all??

OK, one time Randy Beaman had to take baths with his brother. So one time his little brother took a potty in the bathtub .....and now Randy Beaman gets to take showers alone. 'K, bye.

Only the players who tie in the column are eligible to break the tie when considering total of the brokers in front of their screen. So, no - you cannot win the tie-breaker if you placed no brokers in the market.

That was my initial guess, but the rules don't specify it anywhere (including the example). Is that an official or a house ruling?

Neither house ruling nor official, simply intuitive. Ys is not the type of game that will throw balance out the window and allow a non-participant to win. Fluxx maybe, but not Ys.

Ah, it looks like I overlooked a previous forum post on this. It's actually decided by the tie-breaker among ALL players:
