So Orcs get a bonus for conquering unoccupied territories. If the Orcs abandon a territory and then re-conquer it later in a turn, do they get the bonus? Technically they are conquering an unoccupied territory, but should it read "unoccupied at start of the player's turn?"

I was under the impression that you couldn't abandon a territory and reconquer it that turn. Is that correct? –  user1359 May 27 '11 at 20:29
    
@nicole - you should ask that as your own question. –  Pat Ludwig May 31 '11 at 18:06

You have it backwards. Orcs do not gain a bonus for conquering unoccupied territories. From the Rule Book, emphasis mine:

Orcs

Each not empty Region your Orcs conquered this turn is worth 1 bonus Victory coin, at the end of your turn.

Vacating a territory would mean that it was unoccupied when conquered, and therefore the orcs would not get a bonus.

Thanks for the correction : ) I didn't have the game in front of my when I was asking Small World questions that day. Simple mistake! –  Gundabad Feb 28 '11 at 14:28
