tl;dr Scoring in Saboteur 2 is a little confusing, so I made a little widget to help me figure out who wins.
The rules for figuring out who wins at the end of round of Saboteur 2 can be a little confusing, so I made a widget to help me figure it out.
If you’re interested, her is what the instructions say:
The saboteurs win if there is NOT an uninterrupted ROUTE from the start to the treasure. Otherwise, some of the dwarfs win and all winning dwarfs in play split the treasure (see below).
When the dwarfs win:
A green dwarf is a winner if the ROUTE is not blocked by a blue door, and
A blue dwarf is a winner if the ROUTE is not blocked by a green door, and
Note: Both green and blue dwarfs can win if a saboteur, boss, geologist, profiteer placed the path card that completed the ROUTE. A trapped player never gets gold and does not count as a winner.
