Combining USA East and West - 220-240 tiles is not enough !
« on: December 20, 2020, 11:50:23 PM »
Hi everyone,

We played on USA East and West combined together yesterday, this was really fun.

One problem: We played with 230 tiles, as indicated per the rules. And at the end of the game, all the middle of the map was empty ! As the 4 start squares are close to the side of the map, the middle is getting tiles only later in the game. And once every tiles were placed, there was 3 empty columns in the middle (that's about 30 empty spaces), and about 3-4 columns on each sides with only a few tiles.

We then decided to add 50 tiles, and that was far better. We could place them all, and still didn't have to discard any of them ! (during the whole game, we discarded 8 tiles due to the map chip rules, but we didn't have to discard any tile drawed from the tile dispenser).

So my conclusion is: 230 tiles is really not enough ! I strongly recommend to play with:
  • 270 - 280 tiles if playing with the map chip rules (as some may be discarded due to those rules)
  • 260 - 270 tiles if playing without the map chip rules

The playing area at the end of the game, that's 280 tiles, minus 8 that were discarded due to the map chip rules):




Just for the sight, my tunnel wooden pieces in context:




Just for the sight, my toll wooden pieces in context (they're a bit too big, but at least we do not lose them on the playing area):

How about adding a note on your recommendation to WICA?  ;)

That'd be great  ;)

To keep a 20 tile range, I think the best is to write:
  • 260 - 280 tiles if playing with the map chip rules (as some may be discarded due to those rules)
  • 250 - 270 tiles if playing without the map chip rules

That's really impressive!
Great job!!
 :D

Thanks  ;)
