Quick question here. I know that you have to pick one of the lower generation available when you choose to increase your family. But do you have to use them also in generational order?

For example if I have one first generation meeple and one second generation meeple in my farm and want to send one to, say, traveling... am I forced to send the oldest one (1st gen) or I can choose to send the one that best fits my strategy?

thanks!

No. You can use any living generation meeple on your farm when placing them elsewhere during an action.

The 1's are your first generation... so it only makes sense that they are born first. And over time as they age they'll die first.

There's nothing forcing you to put any generation to work before another. It just wouldn't make sense to have your third generation born before your second.

So if you are looking to get in good with the local government, you'll want to elect a young'un to the City Council instead of grandpa who is at death's door. That way you'll have a representative for years to come. Just because Grandpa is a shiftless layabout who never left the farm doesn't mean you have to use him when the family makes it's next move.

I have found the 1st and second gen family members are better for traveling because you can use them to hit all the travel locations you need to hit and then not worry about wasting an action to get them back to the farm. Just let me die on the road.
