Hi,

What does happen if there is no more bedding card left to take? We put counters on cards? I found it really strange that there was only 5 cards like that in the game.

tx !

I assume you are referring to begging cards.

If you ever run out of begging cards, just record down the negative VPs somewhere. There is no limit on the number of begging cards a player may receive during a game. However, once you get the hang of the game, it will be rather rare that all 5 begging cards are required in a typical game. Our Agricola games seldom require them.

Begging cards do not have component limitations, so whip up some proxy tokens to represent more. Though I must say I've never seen them used up in any game I've played.

In fact, the only things which are piece-limited in that game are each players' individual components (people, fences, houses). Everything else is unlimited.

Everything is relative to perception, and your perception is limited.

If you have to take that many begging cards, you should probably just start over gulp

Or wonder who cheated multiple Mendicants into the game.

We play it this way:

Everyone gets one begging card.

If you need to take a begging card during play, you put the number of food tokens needed on the card.

At the end of the game, you count the number of food begged for and multiply it by 3 to get your penalty.

Doesn't happen that often but that's how we roll.
