Giving more bonus if a new city is further for the capital

Postby wieder » Sat Mar 17, 2018 6:37 pm

We had this more experimental game (LT40) where we were trying out all the crazy ideas people have had over the years. It was quite fun for the most part and one idea for the follow up game is creating a true colony city or cities. For this it would make sense to give the city bonus based on the distance from the capital. Now the players get a penalty based on that, but would it be possible to the opposite? Opposite because that way it would make no sense to build a colony next to the other cities.
