Some random questions
Flight Phase - I built a trading outpost at outpost intersection 1, and I have a freight ring. However, I want to use the “Wear and Tear” encounter card to remove the freight ring – may I do that? If yes, what happens to the trading outpost?
As in all Catan games, you must meet the requirement only when you build. You don’t have to reverse previous building activities if later in the game you no longer have the things needed to meet the requirement.
Diplomat Outpost Mission - When we played the game, all 4 target planets happened to be in one of the 4 card stacks and thus had the same function as a Lost Planet – namely, that you can’t perform actions because of them and also lose a Booster point.
Your way of playing was correct: in this mission the target planets are indeed considered as additional Lost Planets.
Foreign Cards - Can I place the Pawnbroker also on Foreign Cards that I placed in my opponent’s principality?
Note: Foreign Cards and the Pawnbroker are part of the Catan Card Game – Expansion Set.
Influence Card – Action “Deserter” - May I play a Deserter or an expansion card against my own Domains (which often would make a lot of sense during the final phase)?
You can use your Magic Books as soon as you have placed them and are able to pay for the required Magic Power. There is no limit regarding victory points, but you should have at least one Wizard.
"Beloved Prince" Statue - If I build a statue again that was burnt down or removed after a Raid, does a Unit desert again?
Yes. You are building a Statue, and therefore, the rules for building a Statue apply.
Irmgard, Keeper of the Light - Do I receive a resource if I use a hero like an action card and remove him from the principality?
No, you only receive a resource if your opponent performs an action that results in the removal of one of your cards.
Note: Heroes that can be used like action cards belong to the Age of Darkness expansion.
Wolfgang the Street Performer - In what order are the consequences of the event die result resolved if Wolfgang has been placed?
When the "Celebration" event is rolled, the exact order of actions is as follows:
- The player with the most skill points chooses any 1 resource and places it on the corresponding region. If both players have the same number of skill points, both players take 1 resource.
- If one of the players has determined the Celebration via Reiner the Herald, he receives another resource.
- Wolfgang's owner may take 1 resource on each region directly adjacent to Wolfgang.
- Wolfgang changes over to the other player if he can and the player wants him.
- If a player has a Builders' Hut and less than 3 stars on a Public Feeling (or less then 6 stars on two Public Feeling cards), he receives a star.
Note: Builders' Hut and Public Feeling cards belong to the Age of Enlightenment expansion.
