Days of Wonder have posted a clarification to the rules for their recently released Cargo Noir boardgame.
From their website:
As many of you know we recently began selling our newest board game, Cargo Noir. We’ve been testing, playing, designing and readying this game for publication for many months and feel strongly it is one of our best – so it’s exciting to finally see it getting into the hands of others.
A core game play aspect of Cargo Noir is bidding for the right to earn cargo tokens from different ports. You work to collect either matching tokens (all the same), or different tokens (all different). It seems that many who have tried, or even worse taught, the game – have been collecting their “different” tokens randomly, not realizing that the rules explicitly state that they need to be “each of a different type“.
