Jamestown Simulation: New Production Rules


New Production Rules

From now on, everything that a worker produces beyond what is necessary to pay his passage debt is his or hers.  The company will buy each worker’s product under the following terms:

 1.  Colonists must still work to pay for their passage to the New World.  Each colonist must create 10 drawings for the Virginia Company during each round.


 2.  Any additional drawings belong to the colonists.  The Virginia Company will buy them for 1 piece of candy per drawing produced in that round.


3.  Workers / colonists will be paid at the end of each round when they present their finished drawings to the game managers.
