He sees you when you're sleeping; he knows when you're awake ...
He knows if you've been bad or good.
is it allowed to move onto a friendly character in order to exchange objects, then move back to the space you just moved from?
For example, using Figure 5 on page 9 of the English rulebook, could the thief on her final movement point, move right instead of left (with the speed potion instead of the rope, of course)?
Tt my troll carrying treasure
G my goblin
===== opposing start line
can my goblin move back 1 onto the Troll, take the treasure, and move forward 2, earning me 3VP?
See page 7 of the basic rulebook:
During his movement, a character can:
• Move to any adjacent square (including moving backward).
• Move through objects and wounded characters (friendly
or enemies), even stop on objects and friendly wounded
• Move through unwounded characters of the same color,
but not stop on them.
Moving Backward is moving back into the square you just vacated. If you really felt like it, you could move back and forth and back and forth and back and forth until you ran out of Movement.
Yes, your Goblin can move back, grab the treasure, and continue moving (even back into the same square he just left) for three VP's in this example.
