Soy Sauce

Post by Spudster »

Soy Sauce is a bad add in my book. I am done playing arena because of soy sauce.

Do chopsticks held in the final hand count as an extra colour 'variant' for Soy Sauce purposes?

What are the soy sauce rules? Often I have same number of colours as opponent and they get 4 points, sometimes a tie doesn’t give points??? Inconsistent and bugged out

Just lost another game incorrectly after opponent got 4 points when number of colours are equal

I 100 percent agree. It is not the ADDITION of the Soy Sauce I do not like, it is the fact that the rule is not thoroughly or properly explained .

It states that you need to have the most colours out of all the players at the end of the had and you will get 4 points. Yet there has been many rounds where I have 5 colours and my opponent has 4 including the sauce and they still get those 4 points. So this means one of two things.

1. There is a bug in the system and just awards the 4 points if you are the ONLY one with a Soy Sauce

2. The rule should state "The player with the most colours who HAS a Soy Sauce gets 4 points. If you are the only one with a Soy Sauce you get 4 points regardless."

From the rules:

"SOY SAUCE
Soy sauce makes every dish taste better. It’s the perfect addition
to a varied meal.
At the end of a round in which soy sauce is played, all players
compare how many different colored backgrounds they have among
the cards they have played. If a player has the most (or tied for the
most) different colors and has also played a soy sauce card, it is
worth 4 points. You may score multiple soy sauce cards in a round.
A soy sauce card itself is considered when determining the most
different colors. Only dessert cards played in the current round are
counted."

So, if it is awarding someone with a soy sauce who does not have the most colors, file (or up vote) a bug report with the table# linked.

Do you have links to games where this has happened so it can be checked?
