Question about The Cards Riots - How can I protect my units from Riots?

Answer

Units without commerce points or strength points are always protected from Riots and can never lose this protection. For units with commerce points or strength points you may pay 1 gold or, if you have more than 2 of these units, 2 gold. The following cards protect potentially threatened units from Riots:

  • Chapel: Protects all affected units if either a 1, 2, or 3 or a 4, 5, or 6 is rolled with the production die. If the player has both Chapels, his units are always protected, no matter which number is rolled with the production die.
  • Sebastian the Itinerant Preacher: You may play Sebastian in reaction to Riots. In this case, all your units are protected from these Riots.
  • Public Feeling: If you pay 1 star, the event doesn't affect you.

Note: The Public Feeling card belongs to the Age of Enlightenment expansion.
