I think I'm having trouble understanding the way the coin economy works in Challenges, or maybe I'm missing something.
❍ Each losing Pool generates 1 Bonus Coin per die rolled regardless of Success.
❍ Each winning Pool generates a number of Bonus Coins equal to the total sum of all Successful dice in the Pool.
The winners will typically earn more (averaging 1.5 Coins per die) than the 1 Coin per die of the loser’s Pool, which is part of the economic advantage of trying to win Complications.
Let's say for example that there is a roll-off between 8 dice and 6 dice, with each rolling the average number of successes. That's 4 successes for the big pool, and 3 for the small pool. The big pool wins and gets 4 coins; the small pool gets 6 coins, i.e. the loser just got more coins than the winner, and this seems like a perfectly typical and average sort of distribution.
What am I missing that makes the winners get more coins than the losers on average? Am I perhaps overlooking some rule nuance that means winners get more bonus coins, or have made some silly slip when evaluating the average outcomes?
