East Indies Company
Actually two questions:All game, even if all your influence is eliminated and it become valueless.
1) When you take this tile do you keep it for the entire game or just one war?
2) Can I get both Indies Company tiles and use both in one area like India in one war? So I could basically use it twice per war? If I can it seems like a cheat.Yes. Rather a lot of Trade to be had. (France and Holland also had East India Companies)
Not sure what you are getting at here, companies provide income, not a combat advantage. Use them when you feel you have the maximum benefit, or if they prevent you taking unrest.
3) Does anyone have a house rule on movement? Movement rules to colonies seem brutal.Take Navigation, it's free. Normally you only lose a unit on a 1, followed by a 1 or 2; about a 6% chance.
Navigation removes the possibility of unit loss.
(Not brutal, realistic. Britain lost a fleet colliding with Cornwall once!)
I really do enjoy the game - its simple but it has plenty of agonizing choices to make.Certainly does - brilliant, but with the worst Wallace rules ever!
