As a pokerfreak, I love the concept of this map!

Quick question: If a player has less than 5 territories but holds a bonus (e.g. a pair) - should they be given their bonus since technically they don't have a 'hand' of 5 cards? :geek:

OK,,, this i will direct at edbeard since it is you that has been answering the questions.. The game legend states no territory bonus and yet in the game log it states you are receiving 1 army for holding 2 , 19 , 7 however many territories you may hold.. You always get just 1 army .. Then you have a pair and get 3 for the pair and 1 for the territory bonus that doesnt exist according to legend..Toataling 4 for a pair as the legend states. I am not a computer geek so i can only assume that this confusion is due to how the xml must be written.. Unless one reads this thread they will always be confused. I am suggesting this.. If its possible ,, change the word territory or territories to card and cards and have the legend state +1 for holding any cards .Then minus one from each hand bonus on legend..and omit no territory bonus from legends because there are no territories just cards. something like that ... Just a thought .

The problem with 'no card bonus' is that cards have another meaning in the context of CC - this would surely lead to more confusion...

This isn't possible in the XML - the minimum reinforcements that can be set in the XML is 1 - this is to ensure that no player ends up "stale". Sadly of course in this map - that's not possible - as you always get a bonus. - I asked Lack if this limitation could be removed and he said "maybe".

So - yes you have to add the 2 together.

A fair point - but one that I think would make the game a lot harder - hence why I left it as is.

Also - as in some starts - you only have 2 cards - it's a bit harsh to force them to go through at least 9 neutrals til they can get bonuses.

This has been discussed in the map development - we chose the starting places specifically so that it was only possible to receive a maximum of 2 pair - and only if you're playing 2 or 3 or 4 player - to get that drop you would be very lucky - and if you have pairs - chances are - the other players have pairs - we decided that the +2 bonus that they received for this was negligible with the neutrals on the map. - Above 4 players and it's impossible to receive 2 pair - you may receive 1 pair.

Then this should be explained as such in the legend. Or you will continue to confuse folks. Anything "not normal" should be explained...


Second: In game 3254290 my opponent got the high card bonus, then I also got it in the next turn. Unless this is a "per person" this should not be possible. That is, is it the overall high card OR just having the high card for that person ... that is, essentially a default bonus? Either way, it should be explained a bit better.

Possibly - but there's no place to put anything like "sadly we cannot have one bonus in on go due to limitations in the XML - you will receive 1 for territories and the rest for your bonus - it will add up to the bonus shown in the legend".

Well in poker if you don't have a hand all you have is a "high card". That is what it means. This way you always get a minimum of 3 armies!

A couple suggestions:

If there is a way, perhaps through BoB even, to show what cards you have and what your opponent has. Knowing what cards his full house comes from makes it easier to figure out where to attack. Also, knowing what you have without writing everything down would help you figure out what cards you should focus on. Right now you can do it, but it is difficult to see and hard to follow.

You can see this info in the Textmap (in BOB)?
