Here is a question that came up on my last game session and I did not find anything on it here. Sorry if a duplicate post.

I see in the rules that the max number of bounty tokens that you can have for a nation is 5. And there is only 5 slots on your board for tokens. But can a captain have more then 5 bounty tokens total?

Basically if you have more then 5 bounty tokens do the others just slide off of your board? If so than there is a chance, tiny chance, that a captain could have a max number of bounty tokens of 20, 5 per nation.

Thanks
Ray

I think you're confusing "bounties" with "bounty tokens".

The most *tokens* you can have is 4, one for each country.

The most bounties you can have with one country is 5, if the token has progresses all the way to the bottom top. Once at the bottom top, it never moves further.

Thus, if all four tokens reach the bottom top, you have 20 bounties.

If you can read this, then this sentence is false.

What Steve said, except that the bounty tokens are supposed to start at the bottom of the track and move upward as you gain more of them.

Ok this makes since now. we were taking a new token every time that we got a new bounty and my track of 5 might have shown multiple of say Spanish. But moving the Nation token up the track to show how many you have of that nation makes since.

So if I have 1 bounty for French and Spanish and 3 bounty for Dutch, then both French and Spanish tokens would be stacked on the bottom space of the tracker at 1 and the Dutch token would be on the number 3 slot on the tracker.

What does it happen if a player already having 5 bounties from a nation earns a further bounty of the same nation?

Nothing, it just stays on the 5.

They can't hate you any more than they already do.
