When a player palces ships on the boasrd with during a Burst of Strength, they are placed "next to one of his cities."
There are other references to ships "in" cities, such as the text on the Poseidon card "All ships in your attacked city defend like Greeks. Count your ships as though they were Greeks!"
- Is being next to a city synonymous with being in the city? (I think the answer is No, because the consequences for defeated ships after a successful Attack are different for ships "in" the city (back to supply) than next to the city (ships remain, but victorious Attacker can place an equal number of his ships next to the losing ships )
- If they are different, how do ships get from being next to a city to being in one? Do they move in and out of cities when Regrouping?
