# What does MAX apply to on the Memory Cards in "Autumn Harvest: A Tea Dragon Society Card Game"?

In Autumn Harvest: A Tea Dragon Society Card Game, some memory cards have score wording on them that are unclear to me.

For example, the Winter Memory Card Crisp Evening has a score of "4+?" and the card text says

?=1 point for each token you have at game end. MAX 12.

I am unclear about if the MAX applies to the total card score (the whole bottom of the card that says "4+?") or only the "?" that is part of the score equation.

In the example above, if the maximum refers to the card's total score then it would only count up to 8 tokens and would get up to 12 points for this card.

The other way to read it is that the maximum refers to the "?" alone, so you can count up to 12 tokens and would get up to 16 points for this card.

There are some card instances where both the score and "?" are the same so the maximum applies to both, but in this instance because of the "4+?", the score and "?" are not the same and it is unclear which the maximum applies to.

• In the absence of official errata, play it as written. Determine the value of ? with the formula given `? = 1 per each, with a max of 12.` And then add that to four to get the score. Jan 27, 2021 at 15:17
