38 land
8 ports
12 water
58 territories total

4 players 46 total tokens available

what would you all think of using other houses order tokens to make up for the inequities? say 6 more orders per player

 Tempting, but one of the balancing factors I feel that limits players is that there are only so many orders to go around. You can only make two marches, and even with position on the King's Court you can still only make three.

What I wouldn't mind would be having a handful of extra "blank" order tokens that do nothing. When you have more units than orders (admittedly a rare occurrence) play really bogs down if you use the rulebook's method. Having blank orders keeps the bluffing element intact and keeps the game flowing smoothly with simultaneous placement without unduly compromising the balance.

On an unrelated note, perhaps we should try to keep all the houserules in one thread? Just for the sake of general forum tidiness. After all we can use quotes if we want to discuss a particular houserule.

completely related note man. the rules stay on separate posts because they are separate ideas. Much like talking about cards in one forum post and orders in another or which house is better.

keeping variant rules separate allows an idea to pique someones interest at the title rather than have them go through multiple differing rules variations in one post.
