Hi everyone!

I have a question:

victory rule:
- more White swords

loss rule:
- 12 siege engine

example:
The Round table : 8 White swords; 3 Black swords

The Siege Area: 10 Siege Engine

Loss a war of Pict, so add 1 black sword in camelot and put 2 siege engine in the siege area.

Now :
The Round table : 8 White swords; 3 Black swords + 1 Black = 12 (more white) game end and Win.

but

The Siege Area: 10 Siege Engine + 2 siege engine = 12, so game end too,but we lose.

Which one?
Lose or Win?
Thx any help.

The game tends to break all ties to the disadvantage of the players, so in this event I'd call it a loss. Don't know an official ruling, but a loss would be in the spirit of the game.

No need to interpret-- rules say the instant the 12th siege engine goes down, the forces of good lose (no matter what else).

Even though there are 12 swords, precedence is given to the 12th siege engine that is laid down, so the siege area wins. That is the way I interpret the rules.
If I am wrong then I must have won my last game, too laugh

It actually answers this in their FAQ:
http://www.daysofwonder.com/shadowsovercamelot/en/content/fa...

Which Says:
"During a defeat against the Picts (or Saxons) where a 12th Siege Engine is laid simultaneously with a 12th sword, of which a majority are white, is the game won (because of the majority of White swords) or lost (because of the 12 Siege Engines)?

In this case the game is lost: It is lost the instant a 12th Siege Engine is laid around Camelot, before there is even a chance for the Knights to count the White swords!"
