Q: What Happens When... Sun, 11 August 2013 16:43
Yesterday, I was playing SW and this scenario took place:

Player 1 had one declined race spread all over the map and his active race only had two tokens in two different regions.

Player 2 wanted him to go into decline, forcing the declined race to go away. So he rushed on the acive race making it dissapear.

On player 1's next turn occured the questioning:

A) Should he go into decline with his non existing active race vanishing from the map his current declined race?

B) Should he be able just to pick a new race and start conquering, keeping his current declined race in the map, skiping the turn in which he has to go into decline?

We went for the second choice, but it pretty much looks like player 2 made a huge favor to player 1 that way.

A is correct and unfortunate for the player. Good strategy by 2.

Yep, Jabooty is right! I'm not sure who was which player, but Player 1 should have gone in decline when it had more tokens still on the board...I've made that mistake a few times myself and been stuck with a really low-scoring turn. Razz

That's one of the many things that makes this such a wonderful game! You have to figure out the best time to go in decline and how to keep yourself from getting wiped off the board!! So fun. Very Happy

FYI: This scenario is the second item listed in the FAQ thread pinned to the top of this forum. It's a very common question.

You may find an awful lot of your questions already answered before you ask them, on these forums. After all, this game has been out for 5 years almost, even if it's new to you. In the future I suggest using the Search function and/or checking the FAQ thread before you start new, redundant posts. There are great resources at your disposal.

Welcome to the community.
