How many Medals are you... Fri, 22 June 2007 21:49
...using per player in a typical game?

We've been seeing that as we play more the medals become more and more valuable due to their flexibility in effect and allowing more than one purchase each turn.

On average, our players are grabbing and using about 5 per game. Does that gel with your groups, or are you using more/less?

I agree, the medals are very valuable! Mostly we use them to perform a second action at least once in the game and of course to move the nobles after rolling the dice.

In our group we use 3 to 5 medals per player in a typical game. It depends on how early one buys the emperor's loge.

Medals tend to win games, although I find "3 to 5 per player" in a typical game to be . . . infeasible. How are you getting that many per person per game? I have played a couple games where all five players combined only collected four medals.

I know in the games that we have played, a couple players got three or four, while the others were lucky to get one a piece.

When you buy the emperor's loge in the first round you have a good chance to collect several medals. The loge allows you to move up to 10 nobels in the total of the five game rounds. Of course you need to have some luck that the dice roll nice Very Happy

But you are right, "3 to 5 medals" was a little bit overstated Rolling Eyes . 5 medals was the highest count one player managed to collect, but three medals per player in one game are really not that difficult.

Having finally been able to play this a few nights ago, we were able to accumulate quite a few. My gf and I each assumed two roles for a "4-player" game to learn how it plays. From reading the posts, I made sure both of my colors got loge's in round one. She split hers - with the other getting season ticket holders.

After the first event, it was clear that the loge should probably be the standard investment in round one. She quickly got the second color a loge in round 2. Not only did it increase the chances of landing on medals, it really did help to get the dignitaries to your show.

Back to the point, I am not sure exactly how many we had per player. I would say 3~4 was average. Rarely did they come in pairs so they were most often used to increase attendence or move the dignitaries a little further. In our one game, we never used it for the money (auctions are cheap when you don't bid against yourself!) and I think it was used for the additional investment once, maybe twice. Of the dozen or so we obtained, I think only 2 or 3 came from the asset tokens.
