Is there a Carcassonne-like scoreboard that allows you to keep score without writing?

Is there a variant to play this game as a Poker replacement with betting money?

Wouldn't this be rather large? All digits from 0-to-350?

Not an official variant. But if you can imagine it, then the variant exists.

Thanks for the response!

Well, Carc scoreboard doesn't go to 150. Rather, it goes to 50 and then you get a card that has 50 on one side and 100 on the other, which you add to where your piece is on the scoreboard as it loops around. Hmm, maybe buying a few scoring dice and using those for each loop around the Carc scoreboard..... but then transporting the game is a lot less portable!

It's not exactly what you're looking for, but Sheamus Parkes' has a variant that uses a Cribbage board to keep score. I've tried it and it works fine.

Not any that I know of - though, of course, you can always play the game for money if both players want to.... something like how Gin Rummy players payout, for instance, would work ("the player with the lower score pays the player with the higher score an amount proportional to the difference between their scores"). I'm sure there other ways to try as well.....

You could look at the Miscellaneous Game Accessory boardgame entry, there are a few scoretracks in the files section.

I think The only score chart you'll ever need will do nicely. It goes up to 99,999.

Thanks to you both!

I ask for the Poker replacement because I personally find Poker dull. I figured if I could suggest it as a substitute one night, especially if 4-5 players were unavailable, it would be a hit, especially with its poker-like hands

I'll look at the miscellaneous files section. That was exactly the thing I was hoping for but didn't know where to look. Thanks for showing me the way

I use a scorer app on my android that works like a charm.

I'd thought about the betting for money aspect (of course, you can play with different values).....

Basically, each player is in for $1 and has an additional $2 in their personal stash which they can use 0, 1, or 2 to bet on going out first. The score each round is not cumulative, each round is its own new game. Play normally. Score after the round ends normally. The winner gets the middle pile. The betting for going out first works like this:

I bet 2 dollars (big bet) that I will go out first. I win. I get 1 + whatever each player bet from each player.

I bet 1 dollar (small bet). I win. I get whatever each player bet.

I bet 0 dollars. I win. I get nothing extra.

Play until one player owes you their car and a romantic cruise with their wife.
