Option : "Play all cards"

Post by gorbatchef » 04 April 2020, 22:46

Hello,
I've always considered the end rule very frustrating "Play only one turn each after the last card is drawn" and so i have always ignored it. This rules lowers the score to group with bad luck on draw and doesn't bring anything good to my opinion in a cooperative game.
Could it be possible to have a game option at the creation of the table to ignore it ? Option "Play all cards"
Thanks.

Since this option is included in the original game rules, it seems like a reasonable request.

I have this game in several verions, but I have never see or hear that option.
We should hand in which versions contain it officially, and it will be possible to be implemented.
It will be very easier than current game.

It's variant 4 here https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q ... mdLnHknfp6

I'm in the USA and these rules are in the game that I bought.

We use this variant in France too.

The official rules: http://www.cocktailgames.com/wp-content ... s_BD-1.pdf
"
VARIANTE «BOUQUET FINAL»
POUR LES EXPERTS
La partie ne prend plus fin dans le tour suivant la pioche
de la dernière carte. Elle se poursuit jusqu’à la défaite des
joueurs (3 jetons rouges dans le couvercle de la boîte /
une carte indispensable a été placée dans la défausse)
ou jusqu’à la victoire totale (tous les feux d’artifice sont
complétés). Les joueurs peuvent donc se retrouver avec
moins de cartes en main à la fin de la partie et l’échelle de
score n’est pas utilisée : le feu d’artifice doit être parfait ou
c’est la défaite !

I posted a similar topic not realizing this already existed. The rules linked on BGA even state this variant. It's called crowning piece. However, that variant says you must achieve perfect or you fail.

That said, I think both options could exist.

1. "Play all cards" - This is what you're talking about where you can keep playing past the last draw but you don't need to get perfect.
2. "Crowning piece" - This is what the rules state and you can only win if you get all 5's. (This should come with a warning that this is not recommended for new players)

If you change endgame to "play until all cards are played", you cut out an entire, interesting part of the strategy (but I won’t spoil).

Had a lot of games ruined by a deck-bottom 2 or 3? Then find a way to counter that and become less luck-dependent ;-)
Learning and finding out how to max out your average score is the whole fun of this game.
