Bug with ebonist (D155)?

Post by Dermerlin »

In this game i played ebonist in round 7. After round 7 followed the harvest (as usual), but i didn't get the chance to change 1 wood to 1 grain+1 food. Or maybe i got the chance and wasn't aware of it??? I don't think so, but maybe i have to activate it at some point and didn't know?

Now we are in Round 8 and there is a blue frame around that card. Does this frame mean anything?

You have to open the Exchange Centre to make the change - it's the same place where you convert animals to food.

You're not the first person to have this problem, see eg https://boardgamearena.com/bug?id=101357

The blue outline is for cards which have an exchange in the harvest, to remind you. The outline currently persists after the harvest, but I don't think it should.

Thx for the quick answer...
If you don't know that you have to use Exchange Centre, you will usually not find that yourself.
I have Treegardener in the same game and for this one there is a popup and you are asked whether you want to make the Exchange or not.
I can see the difference (Treegardener procs in the "field phase of harvest" and Ebonist can be used "during the harvest") but it's still a little confusing.

Yes, I have outlined the issues in this thread: https://boardgamearena.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=32924

Since then, a blue highlight has been added to some cards, but that seem to be bugged as it is glowing all the time and not only when it should.

I do prefer your suggestion, it is odd having some cards in the Exchange Centre and others not for harvest-specific exchanges. I admit I have still forgotten exchanges even with the blue highlight, though it is an improvement.
