Saboteur Duel adds Troll cards into the game where there is path, but one of the branches is blocked by a troll.
The rules state:
The troll blocks the path behind it. If a player wants to pass a troll, he has to bribe it with 1 gold nugget.
My question is: can I build off the blocked branch?
As precedent for being able to build off a blocked branch I would point to the coloured door cards from Saboteur 2. Any player can build off of a path blocked by a coloured door, but if the gold is exposed through a path through a coloured door, only that team wins regardless of who plays the final card.
Would it be for paths blocked by trolls that I could build off the blocked path but not be able to collect any exposed gold until someone bribes the troll?
I assume the answer is 'no', but the rules aren't explicit on this point and there is some debate in my group.
