What are Crew Points and how do I use them?CREW POINTS are the currency for action in Lost Tides. All of the captain’s actions require CREW POINTS, which are generated by the crew (either via real-world steps for player-controlled crew, or auto-generated for computer-controlled crew). CREW POINTS can be used in several ways:
At each ENCOUNTER, the captain is given an easy path and a hard path that he or she may choose. At each path the captain may choose to spend more CREW POINTS to increase the chance of success for the given path.
To spend CREW POINTS at an ENCOUNTER:
1) Select which action you’d like to take.
2) Slide the meter up or down to increase/decrease the number of CREW POINTS to spend on the ENCOUNTER.
3) Tap the action button.
The captain may repair the ship while at sea using CREW POINTS. If the ship has any damage when a given chapter ends, the repairs are made automatically and taken out of the ship’s GOLD stores.
To spend Crew Points on Repairs:
When your ship has taken damage in encounters, the REPAIR SHIP BUTTON will appear at the bottom of the game board.
1) Press the REPAIR SHIP BUTTON.
2) Slide the meter up or down to increase/decrease the number of CREW POINTS to spend on repairs.
3) Tap the REPAIR button.
