Can you move your great people around however you want, or whenever you want? What is the ruling on moving Great People?

While "moving" great people is not specifically addressed, the rules on page 18 state: "If they are replaced (by having a building, wonder, or another great person placed in their square), they are held in reserve and returned to the player’s civilization sheet instead of being discarded. During the Start of Turn Phase of any turn, a player may place any great people on their civilization sheet back on the map in the outskirts of any of their cities."

So, I don't believe you can voluntarily move them, but you can build in their square and take them back to your civ sheet, then place them somewhere else at the start of a future turn. I also do not see anything in the FAQ regarding movement of great people.

You are right, Harold.

Because it's not addressed, it's not allowed. In order to move a Great Person, you must build over it to retrieve it and replace it in the next Start of turn.

Remember: while it remains out of the board, it is not working!
