Hi there!

While I was translating this version of rules to Hungarian I noticed two questionalbe points:
1.) On page 3 for 4 players you say:
"Shuffle the 12 Location cards and place with (square sign) side up randomly in conguration shown at right." But later you mention that the square signed sides are for advanced players, and the amount of the recommended signed cards are only 4 instead of all of the 12.
I think you may reword this sentence on page no.3.

2.) The other thing is an advice:
In case of further tie the winners may not share the victory, but settle the issue with:
a) an arm wrestling match,
b) beer-sausage contest,
c) weightening/measuring of their keyring,
whatever.

Please tell us if you have a new/finished version of rules. Thanks.

Hello!

Thanks for the feedback. To address your suggestions/questions:

1) The advanced and basic signs are now different in the rules set, and the sentence has been reworded to state that players will need to set out an amount of cards according to number of players.

2) I do like the idea of a further tiebreaker and it has been discussed, but since this is a good family game, we didn't want to give a tie-breaking advantage to just the biggest player in case of arm wrestling, or urge a 10-year-old to guzzle beer. In many cases, fighting back at the end of a game and tying the winner often feels like a victory, so we thought we'd reward gamers as such!

Thanks again, and we'll have the new rules available soon.

Cheers,
Chris

Phase 1 C says if you have no fuel nor points then you take the Discard/Draw action, but then the Discard/Draw section says it costs 1 point.

The Discard/Draw action in that specific instance is free.

A lot of things will be clarified further when the final rules are released.

Cheers,
Chris
