Thread: Can you look in a different bag?

    Can you look in a different bag?

    I forget what the rule is on this sort of thing, can i look in my opponents bag? I know the number of dice must be told if asked, but do I get to see what those dice are? Thanks!

    According to the tournament rules you may not look in your opponent's bag.

    I'm just pumped that we're allowed to look in our own bag. For the longest time I thought you couldn't do that, and I would try so hard to break the habit.

    But yes, no looking in opponent's bag.

    You're also allowed to make notes (just not use an electronic device) during play.

    So, at the start of the game, note down how many dice they have on each card, and, during play, note down when they purchase a die.

    From this, and the dice visible, you will be able to always deduce what dice are in their bag.

    This also helps to discourage cheating.

    You can ask, but your opponent is under no obligation to tell you.

    Where is it stated that you can do that?

    Electronic devices are explicitly forbidden in the tournament rules.

    And, whilst the tournament rules don't explicitly say you can take notes, the nature of them is that they say what you must and cannot do, not what you can do.

    So, note taking is implicitly allowed because it is not explicitly forbidden.

    YOu could take notes, maybe about the Turn, the Damage etc... for statistics i think this is great, but i think everything except yours and enemys life tracking would disturb your concentration in the game.

    There is a new player in my local, that actually writes down all the globals in each game that he plays so that he doesn't forget or get confused on one.

    give him the advice that he should instead use WORD or Excel and print them for his team out.^^

    You misunderstand, he writes them out for that game. So, whenever he plays a new team he can keep track.

    Someone on BGG made little slips of paper with all the Globals on them, all with a hole punched in them so they can be stored on a key ring. Then you can just find the ones in play and lay them out.

    There may be more, and those only have the first couple sets, but it's a start and a format you can use to make more for the later sets.

    the globals are printed on the cards...right?

    Yes, but they're upside-down!

    Write down the globals in a nice list, then before the game starts write down how many dice they have on each card, besides that you can figure out what's in their bag just by your notes.
