Six games in, and I'm pretty sure that I'll be playing this game more than twenty times.

But there are only about 20 score sheets in the pad. I think that the pad of score sheets in Agricola was thicker.

As an aside, has anyone thought about an iOS scoring app?

You can use Game Kit on iOS and it will do the scoring just fine.

Agricola's production was better on every level.

That is quite the word! A great idea for a lot of people too. I'll probably do this or use my iPad for scoring.

Yup, laminating one score sheet then throwing it in the box with a dry-erase marker was my solution (did the same with Eclipse).

Not bored with Eclipse, although a 3P game of O&L takes up slightly less table space, so O&L has been getting slightly more play over the last fortnight simply because of the venues we've been using. Eclipse remains my favourite game of the year, but O&L is a great return to form for Uwe (as wherever you stand on Loyang, last year's Merkator was a complete dud for me).

We use a calculator to do all the operations in the end, makes it faster and less prone to mistakes, so we dont use the score sheets at all =)

I can respect solutions but the issue is certainly not resolved: why would they only put 20 score sheets in? When I first received 7 Wonders I was perplexed at the low number of score sheets but quickly realized that you can use the same sheet 5 or 6 times (might be off on that, but close).

I can't imagine printing out a few more sheets would have done much for the production cost.

For the same reason they provided paper thin player boards and force you to change the spinners.

They want to maximize their profits to the expense of the customer.

I have really really bad news. All companies do this. Basically if they didn't care about profits and only cared about customers, we'd get all of our games for free. We don't because they care about profits. And I'm ok with that. I'm not ok with some of their pricing but I really not ok that in every single thread you come along to remind us that the components are sub par. We get it now, your job is done, thanks.

Agreed. Overdone.
