Hi!

Just refreshing this post, since I am about to play my first game, and want to be sure we are playing correctly XDDDD

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/602276/charity-official-...

So...

Is the wealthiest merchant determined at the beginning of the Charity Phase for the whole Charity Phase?

OR

the wealthiest merchant is recalculated after each payment?

Thank you!

We still haven't received a straight answer. The two official sources said opposite things.

Personally, I go with Mario as the designer, who said re-check after each payment.

has mario said something like that? It doesn't seem fair, because it keeps a money balance which is bad.

Yes, the two official conflicting answers are both in the thread linked above.

The "Mario" that's quoted in the thread is the designer.

I had thought that one of the other posters was official as well, but looking now, I think I was wrong. Too many Alessandro's.

So, that's only one official answer, and it's to re-calculate after each payment.

I think the post from Alessandro Lanzuisi is official (first reply to that thread), since he appears in the game credits...

So we are back to step 1, with 2 official answers... cry

They're in the other thread. But in summary:

Mario - "After the first payment Friars D decides who ask for charty to."

Alessandro - "the wealthiest merchant is determined at the BEGINNING of the Charity Phase."

Alessandro is credited in the rules with "Game Development and original idea" right below "Author: Mario".

Official response is from Mario in Question 20 of the Official FAQ:

De Vulgari Eloquentia: official 2.0 FAQs ENG

The answer is, the wealthiest merchant is recalculated after each payment.
