Game length options

Post by Wreckage »

The rules in the box suggest the game to be played to 66 points, but allows players to adjust this. It specifically states the option to choose a certain number of rounds to be played. Please vote for this option here https://boardgamearena.com/bug?id=17059

Besides some player wanting shorter or longer games, there are some benefits to competitions if we had the option to set the number of rounds to be played. I suggest the option to choose 1-12 rounds for game length.

Shorter games:
In real time tournaments, it takes about 2 hours to play 4 tournament rounds. With a few players not showing up, and odd numbers of players participating, you might only play 2 games, with unfair scoring for the event. However, if we could set each game to be a single game round, we could schedule 15 games for each player in that same two hours.

Longer games:
We are competing with 30+ players at multiple tables. Currently, there is no fair way to compare scores from different tables, because some games are 2 rounds, while other games are 6 rounds. It's hard to estimate whether we should schedule 2, 3, or 4 games, since games are all different lengths. It would be nice to be able to set the game length to 7 or 8 rounds and just play 1 game.

The option should be allowed because it's allowed in the written rules.

Seconding this. 6nimmt is one of my favorite games, but this game is very very long by default.
