A woman needs a man like a fish needs a saxophone.
We excluded the injured players because of confusion regarding how to implement the simultaneous bidding mechanic. Do you put coins under your hand and then reveal? (But, what if you need smaller change?)
Yes, taking change beforehand as needed. Why wouldn't you?
And do you find that the Injury mechanic adds value to the game and it's strategy?
Sure, it's part of the game. It would never have occurred to me to remove the injuries.
5) Basko at end game: 5 Basko to 1 Point. We played it fine, this is just more of a comment/concern. Does anyone else think that this ratio is too low? We discussed that possibly the money in hand at end game should have a higher value... like maybe 3 to 1.
I'd recommend spending more money at auctions. The game's not about making money, it's about getting the best team.
