My girlfriend and I played our first game last night, ending in a narrow defeat for me when I miscounted the number of turns left in the game. We both were hoarding foraging sticks during the game, so much so that near the end of the game there were none left in the supply.
My question is, when there are no foraging sticks left, does that mean that neither player can sell mushrooms during their turn? Our intuition was that the sticks are unlimited, otherwise it would be too easy to be stuck with nothing to do on your turn. We ended up just using pennies for the extra sticks.
Hi Alex. You are correct in that the foraging stick supply is meant to be unlimited. As a homebrew fan, I like the idea of playing whichever way suits you, but the 2nd edition of the rules will include this clarification on the infinite nature of the supply. Thanks and happy foraging!
