Question about The “Age of Enlightenment” Expansion Builders’ Hut - In the Theme Game, may I remove the Builders’ Hut and then build it again, so that the opponent can't build it?

Answer

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