I've only read the rules (haven't played yet). What is the advantage of the Sabre and of the Spanish Officer? I'm guessing with the officer it must be nice sometimes to get a certain card out of your den. What about Sabre though?

Thanks,
Rob

The sabre is used to kill an opponent's character in their den. As characters continue to use their night ability while in the den, this could be quite helpful to keep someone from collecting doubloons each day via a character, or something like that.

I think the Spanish Officer is PROBABLY a mostly negative "reward" (you HAVE to take a reward each day I think), though there may be some characters that you do want to kill off. Maybe they reward you with something when they die, or something like that? Just a guess.

Makes sense. I guess the part that confused me in the rulebook was when the Sabre talked about "splitting" the booty. Made it sound like you would somehow share tokens that turn. Or at least that's how unread it late at night.

Ah. Yeah I think it just means splitting the day's booty amongst the other players during that phase of the game. At least that's how I took it. I plan on finding out Thursday after I pick up my copy.

This is right on all counts. There are also characters who make the Spanish Officers worth points or who let you trade in sets of identical Booty tokens for points ...

Again correct. Each day, you will take turns splitting that day's booty up. When you grab a Sabre, you use it immediately to kill someone in an adjacent Den.

hello!

can you sell set of 2 or 3 sabres or spanish officers with merchant card?


in short should they be treated as any other booty tiles (for card actions), or are they in a way special?

Thanks very much laugh


Great game Paolo, by the way - easy but full of fun and flavor. Hope there will be expansions.
