All the tokens have a mumber and the letter F. in the bottom right-hand corner (e.g. cattle 3f., Meat 2f., Fish 1f. Smoked Fish 2f.) - what is the significance of the F.? I assume that it is an abbreviation of Franc - does it serve any purpose in the game?

Other than to remind you of what the currency in the game is called, none what so ever.

well, I'll be buggered....I actualy read the (F.) as an (E) in the Oz edition and concluded that it must mean E for Export. I need new glasses.

I did exactly the same but thought that E stood for Energy but that made no sense at all.

Perhaps your new understanding of the components will allow you to improve your performance in the game (and impress all your friends).

More specifically the F is for franc as in French denomination.

As you pley the game more, you discover that shipping goods is one of the best ways to earn money. When the authers say that it's hard to win the game without ships, I think this is what they mean rather then the food aspect.
