Salt valuable for points? Game 20298

Message par RiverWanderer » 24 Mars 2017 17:04

When I was trying my last move in this game I think I spotted that salt was getting a money value in the points scoring, even though the rules say that salt is never exchanged for money. In the end, I made a different final move, using the salt to build instead. Hope I am not starting a wild goose chase.

The rules a écrit :Salt is a wild-card, which means you can exchange salt with any other good at any time.

So at the end of the game, you exchange salt for clothes and that's it

After a recent face to face play and re-reading the rules, I am not so sure, as
The rules next a écrit :But you can never buy or sell salt for sestertii.


If you can always exchange salt for a good, even in the middle of buying and selling goods, then the second rule is pointless. I read it that you can always use salt as a good but that you cannot trade salt itself, including at the end of the game.

It's a lovely implementation of the game, regardless of this minor point which I may well be mistaken on. Thank you Frederic... is there any chance we will see the Gallia and Corsica maps one day?
