How to win? Highest score or lowest score?

Post by rafiki_33 »

In the BGA implementation the rules say:
"A round ends immediately if a player has no more cards in hand. When a round ends, each player sums up the Egocentrism values in their hand. The player with the lowest score wins. During a game with multiple rounds, each player adds up their scores at each round. Rounds are played until one player reaches 50. Then, the player with the highest total wins."

In the rules book link it says:
"A round ends immediately if a player has no more cards in hand.
When a round ends, each player sums up the Egocentrism
values in her hand. The player with the lowest score wins.
During a game with multiple rounds, each player adds up her
scores at each round. Rounds are played until one player reaches
50. Then, the player with the lowest total wins."

The tutorial was confusing as well. Am I trying to get the lowest score fastest? So I want to keep the higher points in my hand until the end of each round so I have a high round score to lower my overall score?

In the BGA implementation, each player starts with 50 points, and the remaining card values are subtracted each round. When one players reaches 0 or lower, the player with the highest score wins.

The only way to win is to not play it. It's one of the worst games I've ever played.

Hi !

In the BGA implementation, game can be played in 30, 50, 100 or 200 points.
So it's easier to know game will end when a player score gets below zero.

Whatever you do, you will be punished with high value cards in hand when round ends.

Thanks for your grown up comment.
I'm pretty sure both art director Ultra Nan and François Bergeron appreciate a lot this from a fellow countryman.
