I would like to report a BUG. Please check game #174047. I had a scoring card in hand and North Sea Oil was in effect so I could play an 8th action round. It was my intention to play the scoring card in the 8th action round, but the app decided to already end my turn after the 7th action round and then the app said I lost the game because I was still holding a scoring card!! That is why I now rate the app 1 star in Google Play. I will give 5 stars again after the bug is fixed. Thank you in advance.

 

EDIT: My bad, apparently North Sea Oil was played in the previous turn. Still it could be made clearer, as gweis also writes (see below). Compliments for the speedy reply!

Unfortunately, this isn't a bug in the implementation of the card.

 

North Sea Oil was played during Turn 9.  The extra action round only applies to the turn during which is was played.  You got an extra action round in Turn 9 (you spaced Socialist Governments).

 

The extra round does not carry over to the next turn, but preventing the play of OPEC does.  So there are two separate icons for North Sea Oil - one on the upper row to indicate it lasts indefinitely and one on the lower row to indicate it will stop at the end of the turn.

 

Sorry for the confusion.  We'll look into finding a better way to display this distinction.

I stand corrected. Thanks gweis for your speedy reply and also thanks for looking into a clearer display to avoid confusion next time! (I also changed my rating again to 5 stars!)
