Question about The Cards Hedge Tavern - In the Theme Game, may I remove the Hedge Tavern and then build it again, so that the opponent can't build it?

Answer

You may remove the Hedge Tavern and build it again. This, however, will not prevent the opponent from building a Hedge Tavern, because in the Theme Game a removed Hedge Tavern is placed face up again.
