Okay we were playing a game tonight and one player after the election had 2 green political favor chips because he did not mathematically did not need to bid them to win his wards in our four player game. We got into a debate about what was supposed to happen to them. he made the argument that he should be allowed to keep them because he did not use the favors. We all made the point that at the end of the turn if they are not used that they cannot be saved and must be returned. We all made our points and in the end we decided that they would be returned because the other 3 player would have played it differently if they had known they could do that. At the end of the game however we all wondering if we made a correct ruling on what is supposed to happen with political favor chips that are not used on election day and I was hoping that someone could make an official ruling.
he was right, y'all were wrong. In fact, that would make the game pretty boring if you played the way y'all did. Throwing elections intentionally to hold favor chips for the next round is a great strategy.. especially in the year 3 elections.
