Fun fact: did you know that if you take two six-sided dice, and roll them 20 times, theres a better than 50% chance that you'll roll the same number four times or more, while not rolling a certain other number at all?
This is my favorite vicious trick ! Having everybody losing its city, while you still have yours is awesome. You get so much ahead in your city improvements, that you can collect a lot of progress cards and usually end up with 2 metropolis, by the time they get their cities back and can reach a competitive level.
Don't worry, this is one of the best move at C&K. Absolutely nothing to do with unsportsmanship. The admin will NOT bar you for this.
@YongeNore It is right what @Stroom said. Please note: The Apps available at the moment are not compatible with Catan Universe. But as soon as the game is released on mobile, it will be possible to play against your friend using an Android phone, the other using iPad and you on your PC or Mac. It will also be possible for you to download the game via the stores, login with your account and use all the expansions you already unlocked on another platform. FYI: That is one reason among others why the game is marked as free to play. No initial download costs for our users. You switch your phone from Android to iOs .. no problem
Just to reassure you: You don't really lose the points. After every game, ELO-gains and -losses are awarded correctly according to the rules. The problem only affects the game summary screen which appears at the end of a game.
Where does it say that? In the base game it does not work like this. I have about 8 years of playing experience too.
Only in seafarers expansion some numbers are hidden. But only on the islands which you have not explored yet. Maybe read the rules again
Edit: Base game rules:
Second, create Catan by placing the 19 terrain hexes on the table... Third, place the circular number tokens on top of the designated terrain hexes. Finally, place your settlements and roads.
