My wife and I have today completed our first game thanks to the various people who assisted yesterday.
We only have 2 basic questions.
1) The entry into the Marketplace is either 2 food or 1 franc. If I can convert food into francs, why would I ever need to pay 2 food. Surely I would convert say 1 fish into 1 franc and pay the cost of entry.
Am i missing something obvious?
Sometimes you don't have 1 franc to pay. And you cannot pay francs with food: when a price is in francs, you have to pay francs; when a price is in food, you can pay with food or francs.
2) Harvest- when paying the cost at Harvest time at the end of the round, can I pay in both francs and food? Say put in 3 francs and 4 fish if I have to pay 7 food.
Yes, you can.
