There was 4 of us, new to this game. We read the rules, and started the game:

Round #1

We all played like tunnel-lunatic, saboteuring each of others tools. And quess what; we did get only into half way to goal cards



Only one player, that being me, owner of game, even tried to tell others what the heck we should do. As said, still tunnel-lunacy took us over.

Round #2

Second round we played "much" smarter and actually tried to get forward. However, soon we started to bash each others tools since we expected one innocent player to be saboteur. No goal in this round either.

Round #3

This time we got really fast start and with only few card we were almost next to goal card. But then one player, who was not saboteur, broke other pleyer's tool, instead of just discarding card, as probably no other card was playable (who know why?). The war was started again, and otherwise perfect start we ended up messing up - again!

Summa summarum: None of the players got ANY GOLD during these 3 rounds. Oh dear, that was a poor start, but funny as well

Ps. One player played each round in the same way bashing tools broken, eventhough they (singular) was saboteur only once!

Warlord beats Troll, Troll beats Elf, Elf beats Water Sprite, and basically everything else beats Enchanted Bunny.

I noticed a couple things:

- in your picture you have a rock fall card on the map.

Quote:
Rock Fall: Play in front of yourself. Then choose a path card from the maze and put it, and the rock fall card, on the discard pile.


So there should just be an open space where the destroyed card was until replaced by a new card.

Also, you mentioned thay no one received any gold after three rounds.

Quote:
The saboteurs win the round if the treasure card cannot be reached or the deck ran out and everyone passed. 1 saboteur gets nugget cards worth a total of 4; 2 or 3 saboteurs each get 3 nuggets worth; 4 saboteurs each get 2 nuggets worth.


So the Saboteur in each round (if assigned) should have received gold nugget cards equal to 4 nuggets.

Game is very fun for the right group! I hope you continue to have fun. :thumnsup:

In the map, there are a couple of cards that couldn't have legally been played. The one in the lower right, and the one in the upper left. You can only play a tunnel card that connects to a tunnel you can actually reach from the starting ladder.

We did this wrong for the longest time.
