Just a note, it looks like you might have coded up the incorrect rules for war. The official rule book did not get a good translation for Italian to English from the looks of things. The designer has put together an FAQ over on BGG:

http://www.boardgamegeeks.com/fileinfo.php?fileid=19985

In particular, the line:

Quote:
If the attacking tile illustration is different from the one on the attacked tile or if it doesn’t show the war action (the red tile), remove an additional token from the attacking tile.


should read:

Quote:

And frankly, the correct rules make a whole lot more sense from a thematic standpoint. If you attack from a war tile, it never costs you an additional follower. Under the current implementation, fighting from war tile to war tile would be the only time you would not cost an additional cube.

This really isn't a variant since it's written the correct way in the other languages in the rule book.

Anyway, thanks for the cool website!

No, the current implementation is correct:
- attacking from a War tile to any tile doesn't cost and additional cube;
- attacking from any tile to a tile of the same color doesn't cost an additional cube.

Have you seen a game with a different behaviour? Which game ID?

Ahh, very good. I hadn't gotten to actually *play* your implementation (I have a newbie game open :) ), but the mouse over help on your game screen still shows the old "or" wording.

Thanks for the great site!

Hmm.. that's because I used the italian rules during the implementation of the game but later I copied the text for mouseover help from the english rulebook.
I will fix it, thanks for pointing this out!
