Played a game today where two of us were tied exactly 10 - 10 - 11 - 12 or something very near that (maybe off a cube as for the exact tally but we were dead tied on all 4 at the time of the counting).

Is there no official "5th tiebreaker", or is it truly just a tied game?

Thanks

Steel cage death match. Two men enter, one man leaves.

There's no official tiebreaker, but if you believe in turn order bias (especially if everybody did not get the same number of turns) you can assign victory to whoever was later in turn order.

Or enjoy the shared victory and have a beer!

It's all good - just wondering if anyone had heard of such a game - never happened to me before.

Wow, pretty crazy final score to have the winners tied across the board! Congrats to both players.

--most treasure cubes?
--Most total cubes? (Knizia does this for Samurai... both the board game and card game)
--least # of tiles of your possession on the board?
--most blue tiles on the board?


Doubtful any of these are balanced, but at least those are some ideas for everyone to roll around on.
