Balanced variant

Post by Benito Lynch » 30 October 2019, 20:45

Hello! Could anyone tell me what is the difference between the balanced variant and the classic gameplay?

Thanks in advance.

'BALANCED GAME' VARIANT

This variant implements two game balance fixes giving each player an equal chance of winning as listed in the Puerto Rico (board game) Wikipedia page.

The prices of the Factory and University buildings are swapped so that the Factory costs 8 doubloons and the University costs 7 doubloons
Any player that starts with a corn plantation starts with 1 doubloon less than the players that start with an indigo plantation.
Basically a couple of tweaks that helped fix some issues that were revealed when the game hit a wide audience.
