Saboteur 2 Scoring Widget

February 06, 2019

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:

  • The boss and profiteer are always winners.
  • A green dwarf is a winner if the ROUTE is not blocked by a blue door, and

    • A blue dwarf did not place the path card that completed the ROUTE, or
    • A blue dwarf placed the path card that completed the ROUTE and it is blocked by a green door.
  • A blue dwarf is a winner if the ROUTE is not blocked by a green door, and

    • A green dwarf did not place the path card that completed the ROUTE, or
    • A green dwarf placed the path card that completed the ROUTE and it is blocked by a blue door.

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.
