I played Entdecker for the first time tonight, and we couldn't decipher from the English translation whether you spin for income at the beginning of each player's turn or just at the beginning of each round of turns. Since it seemed money was going to be too loose with the former, we went with the latter.

Yes I believe that "start of round" is be the case in the original rules.

As I recall you spin at the beginning of each round and everyone gets the same income.

Suddenly a shot rang out! A door slammed. The maid screamed. Suddenly a pirate ship appeared on the horizon! While millions of people were starving, the king lived in luxury. Meanwhile, on a small farm in Kansas, a boy was growing up.

Hmmm. Been quite awhile, but I think we've always played once per turn... but then I remember there being too much money, too.

Yeah, I'm pretty confident you should be getting money only once per round. How do you think that would affect your view of the game and the most popular review of this game on the Geek?

EDIT: damn the rule book is badly written in this instance:
Quote:
1. Determining Income: The youngest player spins the income spinner. Each player adds that amount to the gold on his gold display, to a maximum of twelve.

Yeah, the rule book is really unclear, but once per round just seemed to make more sense.
