How does score averaging work?
Here's the scene: you're estimating a story, and everyone's chosen their cards.
They flip over, and you see: a Pass, a 5, 8, 13, 13, 21 and 34.
The Current Score area shows 21.
How did it arrive at this estimate?
Each Player that chooses a numbered point card is given a value that matches the number chosen. The average is determined by taking the sum of points played and dividing by total number of players that chose numbered point cards (note: ?, Pass and Coffee Break cards are not included in the average).
The last step in the calculation is to round the average up to the next number in the Dealer-chosen point scale.
So, for our example above:
The Pass card is ignored.
5 + 8 + 13 + 13 + 21 + 34 = 94 total points played.
94 / 6 players that chose numbered point cards = 15.667
15.667 rounded to the next number in the Dealer-chosen Fibonacci sequence = 21
What happens if we want to go with another score? You've got a couple options:
