The blue maps have events that affect specific areas. For example America/Saudi Arabia. However, the game plan does not show exactly what belongs to America (USA and Gulf?) or Saudi Arabia (just Saudi Arabia?).
That was a bit generous. America is incl. Mexico and Venezuela. Saudi Arabia incl. Iraq, Iran and Libya.
Some red cards tell you to take an oil marker from any region. Do you then keep this one or is it also out of the game?
You keep this one.
Some red cards state that all players must discard an oil token. Does this also count for the player who played the card?
In fact, this rule applies to ALL players. Also for the one who played the card.
My fellow player is still picking a card. Can I continue playing?
Yes. Global Warming is designed as a fast-paced game, and while the active player is still picking cards, the following player can begin his turn.
In the guide you can see: Game end 4 players = 20 points, 2 players = 30 points. On the map, however, this is shown differently, 4 trucks on the 30 and 2 trucks on the 20.
Well observed ? — Yes, this is a mistake of the graphic artist (and the editorial office, which did not see it when the data was released). The rulebook is what counts…
The “Public apathy” action card (permanently no green card allowed) is extremely strong and can lead to a conflict in connection with reaching the second oil drum (you have to play a green card).
To prevent this, please play so that “Public apathy” only applies for 3 rounds.
In the rules it says, red cards are discarded after playing.
However, there are also a few cards which are valid longer and are not discarded. They can also be removed using the veto card.
If a player has 0 happiness and plays a card that makes his happiness go down, what happens?
The happiness points do NOT fall below zero.
On the blue cards the first oil field of a country is named.
This refers to the first field on the upper left.
In a few games, the game pieces feel a bit oily.
This is obviously a storage problem. We received the pieces like this from Kosmos-Verlag. If you happen to have a bag of such pieces, it is enough to wash these with soap in warm water.
The cards pipeline and sanction are quite strong.
If this is too powerful for you, you can rule that these cards are only valid for 3 rounds.
