Newcastle Upon Tyne
An English language word please. Interesting game, but the translation sucks. This icon is NEVER identified in words.
Prestige. It's identified on the box cover(!) - it is quite ridiculous that it's not in the rulebook itself but that's what it is.
Are these blotches Victory Points?
Do you get that many blotches every time you take an action having some blotched (ie putting a Knight into a Sphere of Influence -- each Sphere has a blotch with a 2 inside it).
No you get those blotches for having the most knights in the power sphere during the Political Phase. If tied the leftmost knight wins the blotches.
There's a version of the rules, 1.04 that is available in the files section. Makes things a little clearer. There are also some helpful files there which should make it very clear how to gain prestige, privilege, influence and gold etc.
Yes the rules are badly translated but checking the files section should make it all clear.
