Numbers under the double wells

Recommended Posts

When you drill under the double wells, you're not allowed to prospect first.  The numbers of plumes will either be 2 or 5.  But in the bottom right-hand corner of the number '2', there is a small black circle with a '3' inside.  Does anyone have any idea what that is for?  I can't find it anywhere.

Yes, you can find this in the rulebook at optional rules:

Deeper Double-rig Wells


When players drill at a double-rig well, they are
taking a big risk. For experienced gamers, this is
a calculated risk, and they must determine if such
a move is worth it. For inexperienced gamers who
feel compelled to build a derrick during every
single round, it can be crippling to discover two (or
more) double-rig wells with an oil value of “2.”
So, to lessen the blow of discovering multiple
shallow double-rig wells and to cater to a younger
audience, the Deeper Double-rig Wells optional
rule can be used. Under this rule, double-rig well
markers with an oil value of “2” are considered
to have an oil value of “3” instead. These well
markers show a circled “3” to act as a reminder
when using this optional rule. The wells with an oil
value of “5” remain unchanged.
