Hey all,

We just played a game, and I'm still not sure, can you activate Pathology and Gift Shop multiple times in a turn? The rules don't seem to clarify this and while the tiles have the "disc" icon on them, I didn't know if you could just keep using it. If that's the case, doesn't the Gift Shop effectively guarantee a player 2 points a turn?

Kind regards,
Raymond.

2 cubes equal 1 point, so I think you means 0.5 point.

Yes you can activate them multiple times. A few rooms have restriction, and the rule will point them out.

Um, by my calculation - Gift Shop x 4 = 2 points? You have four actions a turn so if you spend them all on Gift Shop you get 2 points. That seems very powerful and leaves you with little incentive to do much else.

Oh, I've mistakenly thought you meant per action. Yes, that's 2 point per turn, but if you play it right, you should be getting more then 2 point per turn. For example, getting a special room tile will net you a point, and potentially give you a nurse station, that's 2 point. A renovation could net you many nurse station for just one move.

I was pretty sure pathology on the room description said once per turn. The gift shop requires cured cubes, so eventually that might dry up, plus as others have said there may be other ways to score more than 2 points at times per turn, but yes the gift shop can be a great bonus tile. Although contracting for it requires some finesse.

The rulebooks says on page 11 declaring the Special Room Tiles: "...Pathology may only be used once per turn"
