Troyes "Points Won: Actions" Clarification

Post by ThirdFavouriteChild » 30 May 2020, 03:01

Hi all,

A group of friends and I discovered this game and so far really like it. One thing that has come up a few times that we cannot put our foot on is a scoring category called, "Points Won: Actions". Searching the rule book and online, I cannot for the life of me figure out where these points are coming from! Our theory is it is bonus points you receive for activating your Activity cards (whether they have a bonus VP on the card or not?), but truthfully we have no idea.

Next time we play we are going to keep track of that and see if our numbers match, but if someone had the answer that would be very helpful!

Thank you,

J

We are also unsure of where these points come from. Any insight would be great.

+1.

Couldn't figure this out from my last game.

So we played some trial runs today and we feel like we finally understand where the points are coming from.
Points Won: Actions seems to be the cumulative score of both:
a) VP's gained through Tradesmen cards, specifically when you activate them, not the value they are worth when you place a tradesmen down.
b) The number of unfinished event cards (black ones at the bottom) that you have a cube on at the end of the game.

We played twice keeping track of these two categories and it lined up both times.

That's what I thought it was too. I still do. But today I scored a -1 point for Action Points. I even scored points by activating cards. So I don't know why it was negative.

Has anyone figured out how the negative action points come about? We just had a game where one of us had -2 but there is no way to see how that is calculated.

There's definitely a way: search for "loses" on the following page and you'll see where those 2 points were lost. :-) https://boardgamearena.com/gamereview?table=161487134
