1)sensing his imminent defeat, Can a meuterer opt not play conflict card from his hands?
2) if there is a 3 way tie for selling goods in highland, and one of the players is the merchant - he gets the max reward of four points - a) do the other 2 players get 3 points each (based on 3 way tie) b) two points each (based on 2 way tie excluding the merchant player) c) or nothing at all (based on the winner takes all rule)
Thanks for the clarifications.

The English rules on the author's site (version 1.2) certainly are not clear. On the one hand, they explicitly say that no one gets VP if all 4 players sell; on the other hand they explicitly say that the merchant always gets maximum points in case of a tie.
So, as they are formulated, the rules contradict each other, and I was confused, like moorwild. But I found the author's example at http://www.casasola.de/spiele/meuterer/verkaufsphase.htm, which shows the case where all sell the same quantity: the merchant gets max points, all others get zero.
