Disclosure of victory points

  • I have always been under the impression that victory points should NOT be disclosed until the end of the game when they are played for a win. Online you can immediately see when a player picks up a victory point, which I don't like.

    Am I wrong on the rules? Are you supposed to announce to everyone immediately if you pick up a victory point? If not, I would suggest getting rid of that feature so victory points remain hidden until the end of the game. Thanks!

  • Are you talking Cities and Knights? Victory points are only disclosed for C&K games. It is in the rules.

  • No, not in C&K. In the basic game. If you look at the icon below the roads icon, you will see a card icon. If that card icon is highlighted white with a 1 next to it (or 2 or 3, etc.) it is telling you how many victory points that player is currently holding on to. It lights up as soon as a victory point is drawn.

  • @type1 The victory points are disclosed in the online Seafarers as well, and they should not be by the official rules... Please change this.

    This issue has already been reported and will be fixed as soon as possible.

  • At least you got to play yours. I sat on 3 victory point cards for much of the last game. I had 7 regular victory points and three cards. The game just kept going. It would t let me play them. Then the game ended and I lost. I'm irritated because 1) it deducted my score because I lost and 2) I had to wait for a long time for the game to end only to lose anyways...

  • @wonderwheeler maybe you played a game with harbour master, this ends with 11 points so it might be correct, that the game wasn't finished. :)

  • @Prinz-der-Sterne No. Just the regular game. Happens on all platforms to me.Once I had 13 points and still lost.

  • The Victory Point cards is really broken. Twice now I had 7 or 8 victory points and 2 and 3 victory point cards the game would not let me play. Both games I lost. Very frustrating and clearly against the rules.

  • @wonderwheeler This has happened to me 2 or 3 times now! I've lost because I can't play my victory points! So frustrating!
