Might be a bit of an odd question, and/or a tough one to answer:
What is your favorite treasure distribution? (standard 8 coins for 15 gold, or otherwise)
Ex: 7,7,1 and 5 specific UT’s, or seven 2’s and a 1, etc.
It’s been a long time (too long) since I last played the game. and far, far longer than that since I last used the official treasure distribution rules. I don’t think the 7-value coins were even in the game yet the last time I set up treasure that way. When it did get used, usually I’d put in at least 2 or 3 UTs, and then would divide the rest as evenly as possible, so it would end up being mostly a mix of 2s and 3s.
Instead of the normal rule, I’d take all of the coins from a couple different UT cards, add a bunch of other UTs (often chosen randomly), and then would distribute everything equally to however many islands were in play. More treasure per island meant more return trips, and a wider variety of UTs kept things a lot more interesting. It’s wasn’t so much a race to be the first to find the two or three highest-value coins.
