Ok I have searched the forums, but I can't find the answer:

1. Why are there so many VP tokens when you only put 3 on each turn spot?

2. Once the building is built, do you keep the VP tokens in your tavern or immediately put them back into supply and score on the track.

I have read and re-read. Maybe I am looking too deep into it. I just can't find a reason for so many.

Thanks

My group plays it that you keep the tokens and score them at the end of the game with your lord and other resources, but I doubt it matters.

As to why there are more, there is a building that accumulates VP every turn.

You remove the tokens and immediately score them. There is extra because there are things like one of the buildings where you put a VP token on it each turn until someone places there and then they score that many points.

You cash them in and then advance your marker on the VP track. There are extra tokens because some buildings require their placement upon them

Ahh ok now that makes sense. I have not played through all of the building cards. I guess if I would have LOOKED through all of them I may have figured that out. When I get a new game I try to play through the items rather than look at each one. It gives me (and my group) a greater element of suprise. On the flip side, it can lead to pouring over rules midgame looking for a certain icon that just showed up. Thanks again!

This is the thread you were looking for to answer the first question:

Reason for so many VP tokens?

It really doesn't matter whether you score them immediately or not. While it's nice to have the score track up to date, it's also nice to have a little pile of VP tokens in your tavern. The only problem possible is if the 3VP/turn building was filling up and no one had scored their tokens. It might be possible to run out of tokens then, but in that case, just score some.

We let players accumulate them if they want...they like the idea of the score track not being quite 100% accurate and being able to play them at end-game as sort of a "take that" mechanic...
