Continued from Charterstone Hints & Tips – Automa and Game 3
**This post is an aid for playing a Charterstone Campaign, and is meant to be read after you have played Game 3 but before you play Game 4. In it I may talk candidly about things revealed in Games 1, 2 & 3. You have been warned.**
End of Game 3
The Game 3 Guidepost goal was to Score the fewest Objectives. Easily done by most people by simply refraining from doing any. This goal would have encouraged players to Score VP by constructing Buildings and opening Crates this game. This should culminate in players having a lot of Buildings in their Charter, and thus should want to make the person who won the right of revealing the choices on this Guidepost, to want to earn more VP by including the Building scores.This will give lots of extra Glory, and should ensure that everyone has filled in their first row by now, and everyone will start with a bonus next game.
Assuming the winning player wants to make this choice. Maybe they’re an anarchist, and just want to see the World burn. Either way, a choice will have been made, a Crate opened, Story 7 added, and a new Guidepost revealed for Game 4. “Have the most Buildings in your Charter”.
There are only 6 plots in each Charter, and construction has been actively encouraged up to this point in the Campaign, so it should be another Guidepost goal, somewhat easily achieved by most players.
New additions to the game
There is a good chance that Rule 3 has been added to the Chronicle during Game 3. If so, click the Spoiler Tag below.
A replacement Rule 18 might have been revealed by now. If so, click on the Spoiler tag below.
Setup for Game 4
There are just a few things to double check before you start Game 4.
- The Guidepost card instructs you to move the Progress Token from it’s normal start position.
- Ensure that each player has collected their bonus for their completed rows of Glory.
- Automa – Don’t forget to include those extra 3 cards in the Deck, and to discard the top 3 cards face down, after each shuffle.
Best of luck with Game 4. We will talk about what happens next in my next post.
