On the topic of Victoria Falls, is it possible to re-roll the outcome of the Victoria Falls draw by reseting the turn and placing the wonder again?
You can reset your turn, which undoes the reveal, but once you place Victoria Falls again, it reveals the same cards, so it doesn’t offer a way to ensure favorable cards appear.
At that point, you have no choice in what to do on your turn other than where to place Victoria Falls, so it’s not like you can view the revealed cards and change your mind about whether to place the falls. However, it could theoretically help you decide what wonder to replace if you have to replace one. There are many scenarios I can think of where knowing which and how many colonies will be revealed and which cards will not appear in the next round, if there is one, can help you determine which wonder to replace.
Still though, I think it’s not sufficiently common that it’s necessary to address, since MaBi is only fixing bugs at this point, and I think the fix would be a major task. But, of course, that’s up to him.
Agree. It would have been critical if you would be able to re-roll the complete outcome, but just for the purpose of determining which wonder to replace, I can live with that drawback.
adderat: explore 'Northwest Passage' (Natural Wonder completed)
adderat: place 'Northwest Passage'
adderat: return to (Stability +3)
Kayser: hire an architect paying 1 (Wonder completed)
There seems to have been an issue with the logging here. According to adderat, two meeples were actually returned, but the second one was not reflected in the log. A clue could be that adderat selected the first meeple to be returned to stability track, then the second meeple was auto-determined to food track, because stability track was then full.
I think I have fixed this bug, though I'm not 100% sure (I found what I believe was the problem in the code and fixed it, but I didn't test because setting up a game with all the right conditions to reproduce the bug is quite time consuming).
