The rules mention prestige points, but not how many should be availible. One could track them on paper, but that could get tedious. Approximately how many points would one need to play the game? What would be a normal upper limit to what would be used? I ask because I'm making this for a family member, and have no idea how many tokens denominations or whatnot I should include.

the original game has 84 prestige tokens in several denominations. i would say for this provide 50-60 1pt tokens and 10-20 5pt tokens

If I remember right, our scores were substantially higher than the traditional game (like 100+ per player!). I'll check my scorebook when I have a chance.

I would agree with the previous poster. I have printed out 3 and 10 point counters as well, but when I played this as a 2 player game, we were both in the 80's...if we played with 5...

I don't remember the exact amounts, but I used poker chips. I used about 30-40 for ones, 20 or so for 5's and 20 again for tens. So far that seems to work.

That's way too much gold. We played this over the weekend, and no one ever had more than 7 or 8 gold. I would say 60 1's is more than enough for 5 players.

Our 4 player game had a winner with 120, second place at 100, and the others were in the 80's.

I made:

24 - 10's
33 - 5's
24 - 3's
39 - 1's

516 divided by 5, that's about 103 points a player. Seems about right.
