General Discussion / Re: Spending Villagers - edgecases
« Last post by Ingix on Today at 09:03:30 PM »
As Markus wrote elsewhere, the requirement to confirm "End Actions" in all the cases where you have Villagers but no use case as with Diadem was a much bigger nuisance. Due to cards like Venuture, the Diadem might not even be in your hand for it to be relevant.

People have different ideas what to do about this, we'll see what will be implemented until the full release.

The confusing thing is that I can't spend Villager tokens after playing my last action card, because it goes immediately to the buy phase. (I'm playing with Diadem.) I had to undo four times before I figured out how to do it.

Actually,you can (I think) tap on any place in that box, not necessarily the name only (at least that's the way it is for mouse clicks).

Also, you can do this on your opponent's boxes as well, for example to find out if they have a Champion or Lighthouse in play that would make an Attack not worthwhile.

Stef,
What are you quoting from?  If it's another thread, can you include enough information here so that we readers know what you are talking about?  :)

(Or a link to the other thread...that would be fine as well.)

actually the forum software automatically makes that "Quote from"-line a link you can click. I will admit it doesn't look like a link though.

Thanks - most of these look great. My only quibble is the "on hover" as the only way to get at some of the information. On a tablet with touchscreen and no mouse this is not possible.
To see the stored cards you can actually click on that player's name and it will show them instead of the log and keep them displayed until you click somewhere else.
Thanks, I have finally found how to do this. It only works if there is something to display, and the particular name to tap is the one in the little player summary box at the top-left of the screen.

...This will be sufficient in >99% of the games...

In theory there are 3 exceptions:
 - If you are possessing your opponent, you probably want to waste their villagers.
 - If you are scared of being possessed, you may want to waste your own villagers.
 - If you intend to play Diadem and you prefer coins to Villagers, you may want to use them.

Two things you can do:
- If you're in your action phase and nothing else is currently happening (= you're not in the middle of playing some card) you can click the villager icon in the status bar to use a villager.
- If you manage to play diadem in your action phase (Black Market or Storyteller) it will simply ask you how many Villagers you want to spend before getting the coins from Diadem.

Unfortunately this still don't cover all these edge-cases. Most notably, maybe you have Diadem in hand but no actions whatsoever, and the game will automatically skip your Action phase. We'll figure something out before Renaissance goes live for real to fix that.

Version 1.4.0.1 (aka previews-2)

This version previews Acting Troupe, Sculptor & Recruiter.
In a preview game today you will get one of those, plus two from yesterdays previews.

These cards introduce the concept of Villagers. The number of Villagers you have will be displayed in your personal info box, and also right next to your Actions counter when it's your turn. The easiest way to use Villagers is to just click on the Action cards in your hand. To warn you that you will be using a Villager the "0 Actions" will be in red, and the border around your cards will be blue (instead of green). This will be sufficient in >99% of the games. More about that here.
