Too often, in a 2-player game, both players gain easily 10+ nobles .

To avoid this, simply try to shift the noble track by two spaces.

In other words, at the end of the game, you have to "adjust" the real number of nobles taken, simply subtracting 2 from the total.

Try it and let me know,
Fosforo goo

Overtext is really cool. The best 100 GG I've ever spent.

Well. I'm actually bored with overtext. Why did I give all that GG away?

At now, I have tried this variant six times and it seems to work properly: only one time I have gained the 12th noble to catch the maximum pot.
During those games, I have not noticed any controindications resulting from the application of this variant.

Enjoy, Fosforo

We've tried it just once and subtracted 3 instead of 2 - this resulted in 9 nobles for one and 7 nobles for the other (me - the winner )

I've forgotten to say that I play with expansion too, then reduced by a moderate number of cards, as suggesteted by the author in this forum.
With this reduction of cards, a shift of 2 on the track is enough, I think.

We also took out one of each noble-cards from 7 to 16.
