What happens if there is still a tie after counting the active & decline race tokens on the board?

We played a crazy 4p game with 3 players tied at 86 points, and two players remained tied after the tiebreak. Does it end in an even draw? Seems anticlimactic.

Yep.

Is the drama of the game in the result, or the play that gets you there? I don't think there can really be a more dramatic result than a struggle so close that nobody can pull one over on an opponent.

Travis,
Mark is and American. The only thing that matters in America is winning!

Mark,
If you really want a winner, I would consider the player who took their turn last the loser. IMO It is easier for the last person to go all out and win than the first player.
Or you could have the player with the most points in the last round the winner.
Or you could play another round of the game to determine the winner.

If you have to have a winner, you will need to figure out a house rule. I would recommend out playing everyone else next time so it is not an issue.

I think the un-official way to settle it is to arm wrestle.

Keep drawing races randomly until someone gets the dwarves. They lose.

I'd suggest that the tiebreaker is to play another game.
