Please help me count points

Hi everyone, I'm sure this has been asked before (or am I the only stupid person?) but I don't understand the examples in the thud rules for counting points at the end of the two games. could someone spell it out for a nerd?

Say game one has five dwarves left to Player One and two trolls left to Player Two, then that's 5 points to the dwarfplayer and eight to the troll player. The troll player wins by 3 victory points. okay. I get that

In game two what happens? Say we have this situation, there are four dwarves and two trolls left. That means Player One (who is now troll) wins and gets eight points and Player Two (who is now dwarf) gets four points. The troll player wins by four victory points.

Player One had 5 and later 8
Player Two had 8 and later 4

Player Two had 3 victory points in game I
Player One had 4 victory points in game II

So how do I go on counting?

DUh...?!

Re: Please help me count points

just as before! you take the difference betweenthe victory points so player one has 1 point over all

technically, what you do is you continue to add the points...so player one gets 5 points for game 1 and 8 for game 2 giving him 13 in total

player 2 has 8pts for game 1 and 4 pts for game 2 giving 12 in total

so

P1=13
P2=12

so over all P1 has gained 1 point more that P2 thus he wins and is awarded a total of 1 point for the set. course it may be easier to add the differences in points for each game which is the same thing

Oh...

that makes so much sense!

...so why on Discworld didn't someone explain it like that in the rules? There ARE slow people like me, who are trapped in woolly thinking Smile)

Thanks ever so much!
