Learning to play Smallworld and I have a question about coins. My understanding is:
- Each player gets five (5) "$1" denomination coins at the beginning of the game
- The remainder of all the other coins (all denominations: $3, $5, $10, etc.) get piled around the world map, face down
- When you receive coins for your controlled regions at the end of your turn, you pick these coins randomly, meaning for each property/region, you could get a $1, $3, $5 or even a $10
- When you put a race into decline and choose a new race/power combo from the mats on the side, you pay to skip race/power mat combos that you don't want with random coins from your pile, so you never know whether you are paying $1, $3, $5 or 10 for each one you skip
So to begin with, if any part of my understanding above is incorrect, please begin by correcting me! But assuming I'm more or less correct, then my question has to do with running out of coins:
What happens when all coins have been exhausted and paid out to each of the players, but the game has not progressed to the 10th/final round?
