If you are playing by the official Cities rules, it clearly states When a player puts in play a card which causes a monetary loss, the player’s teammate must also pay that loss. The thread you are referencing is talking about differences between the official rules and some unofficial team rules, stating that in their unofficial rules, the teammate ...

The rules state: At the end of the game, each mask allows the controlling player to copy the scientific symbol of a green card present in one of the two neighboring cities. If a player possesses multiple [mask] symbols, he or she can only copy a given card once, and must thus copy as many different cards as they have [mask] symbols. A player can copy two ...

You have to also use a card, as in the base game. In order to understand it better, look at the previous token, "construct a building for free". The player takes from the reserve a corresponding token. They can return this token to the reserve to construct a Building for free. In order to construct a building, you have to play it from your hand, right? ...

Babylon's A second stage (or B's third stage) allows you to get one scientific symbol of your choice at the end of the game, if you have built it. If you do, it counts for the scientific points. It works exactly like the Scientific purple card "Scientists' Guild". Example: you have 4 "Gear" green cards and build Babylon's 2nd stage. You can convert it to a ...

As stated by the rules (English Rules, p. 4), you're required to use your own resources first and buy the missing afterwards. Often, a player will want to build a structure requiring resources he or she does not produce. If these resources are produced by a neighboring city – players sitting directly to the left or right of that player – the player will ...

I believe I can get to 231 using the restrictions of the OP, being a 3 player game and only the Leaders and Cities expansions. Wonders used are Byzantium (A) West, Babylon (B) You, and Roma (B) East. A summary of the points are: Military - 16 - from an Age II Stables Coins - 27 - finish with 82 coins from neighbours purchasing from you, Gambling ...

I'll put forward an approach that if nothing else will set a beginning bar. I'll start with some justification as to how I think you could get the cards you need, and then we'll add up the points at the end. Let's assume that the gods are smiling upon you (or that your neighbors are idiots) first and foremost. They play the perfect cards, including ones ...

I have a score of 250 points, using Leaders, Cities and 2 wonders from the Wonder Pack. I score 229 from science, 18 from war and 3 from coins. The strategy focuses on science, and grabs an easy 18 bonus points with a first age war card. See the image at the bottom of this answer for an example game. Goals The main player has the following goals: Buy ...

As correctly stated by @unor, you may opt not to use the chain building, but normally pay for resources (English Rules, p. 4): If the player has built the structure named there during a previous Age, that player can build the structure for free, meaning without having to fulfill the resource cost. Both French and German rules confirm the above. The ...

Answer #1 - Yes, any brown cards played by neighboring players count toward earning coins this way. Answer #2 - This question is unanswered and not clarified by the official rules. You can only change the action you intended for the card you selected if you can't perform the action you intended for it. In your case, since you can't build the structure as ...

Despite not having, yet, a Project that hands out defeat tokens as penalties, the phrase "apply to Conflict tokens from the Great Projects" is still in the rules just in case a relevant Great Project will be released, either as a promo or in a future expansion. That's my best guess.

thesunneversets’ answer is correct, and here’s a quote from the official FAQ to confirm it: Q: Can I buy the resource from a card played this turn by a player next to me? A: No, the only resources which can be used are those which were available before the card was played.

(I’m not sure about this interpretation and welcome insight/corrections.) The rules say about "Free Construction (Chains)" (English PDF, page 4): Some structures in Age II and Age III have, to the right of their resource cost, the name of a structure of a previous age. If the player has built the structure named there during a previous Age, that ...

According to this, you keep the power of the entombed leader. As for seducing an already emtombed leader, I have not found anything, but I would not allow it.

According to the 7 Wonders article in the French Wikipedia, Armada has no release date, and Babel is supposed to be released in the first half of October 2014. In his private blog, Antoine Bauza (the author of 7 Wonders) published an image of the Babel box, with the caption OCTOBER 2014 (Essen) This refers to the SPIEL tradefair, which takes place ...

(I assume you mean Builders’ Union, where other players have to pay 1 coin to the bank for each Wonder stage they built.) Yes, players have to pay also for stages built in the same turn. From the Cities rules about Debts (page 4): Important : monetary losses are always resolved at the end of a turn, after players have played their cards, possibly ...
