In Sid Meier's Civilization, the Communism technology allows another players' movement to be interrupted to prevent figures from leaving a specific square.

What exactly does this mean, does this mean that if my opponent says I'm moving from here to there to attack you, and I spend the Spy resource to interrupt movement, I make him stay in his original square?

Or does it mean that my opponent must always move his figures 1 square at a time, and I play the Spy resource to stop him in his tracks as he moves?

Is there an official answer to this somewhere?

You make him stay at original place. You can do this to any figure, even if the figure is planning to attack someone else and not you. The reason it says "may interrupt a movement" is that you are allowed to use this ability out of your turn, when someone else is doing the movement you can interrupt them. You dont necessarily have to use this ability in your own movement turn.

I already know that it can be used out of my turn. That wasn't the question. –  ardavis Sep 4 '13 at 19:50

The answer to your question was the first sentence "You make him stay at original place". So for that entire turn, the figure cant move.

How do you know that the opponent isn't supposed to move his figures one square at a time, and then when I 'interrupt' him, he stops his figures, and doesn't return them to the original location? –  ardavis Dec 13 '13 at 15:40
