Interface Help

Post by Liallan » 30 May 2017, 06:19

I recently finished a 5 player of Carc, turn-based meaning I don't get to really see what's happening. I'm confused over the "tiles remaining." When the game was finished I was quite surprised that all other players had gotten another turn after me even though it showed 0 tiles remaining. (Dang, and I thought I'd won, but yellow getting another turn put him/her ahead of me.)

I guess I get that it's assigning them in advance, cause I always see my next one. But near the end of the game I'm not really sure how many are left. What exactly is this showing?

It seems to be as you describe: the number shown indicates how many tiles are still in the bag, but every player gets his next tile immediatley after playing, so they seem to have another turn. In strategic mode every player has 3 tiles on hand.

I don't know why I find that so confusing. Maybe because I'm playing turn-based so it's difficult to think ahead when "ahead" might be tomorrow, and I don't actually see anyone do anything.

I think that we need an indicator for each player to show whether he has a tile in his hand or not.

That would be nice.

I did manage to not get as confused in my last game. I had to just keep in mind there were x more tiles than it said, and when getting towards the end think through ahead of time as to who would be last player, which is good information to know (and what messed me up before).

It would just be kind of nice to get some visual on that. If I were playing f2f I would know who had a tile in their hand.
