Yes, it is analogous to the space race track and functions in the same way in this regard.

6.3.6: Regardless of the text on the card, the Event of a card played as a Tiananmen Square Attempt is not implemented. The card is placed in the discard pile.

DESIGN NOTE: The Tiananmen Square track is a player's "safety valve." If a player holds a card whose Event is a good one for his opponent, and he doesn't want the Event to occur, he can use it for a Tiananmen Square Attempt.

Can you send a Scoring card to Tianamen/Space too? We couldn't find anythin explicitly allowing that, but it seems to be allowed by implication.

Great idea, but, no, you can't.

The rule book is slightly opaque on this point, but in Section 6.0, it says:

Quote:
When a non-Scoring card is played as an Operations card, the player must choose to use all of the Operations points on one of the following Options: Support Point Placement, Support Checks, or a Tiananmen Square Attempt.


, the implication being that Scoring Cards can do none of those things.

Then in 6.3.1, it says

Quote:
The Tiananmen Square track contains a marker for each player. Operations points may be spent to at- tempt to advance a player's marker to the next box on the track.


implying that you're spending points to play on the Tianamen Square, of which Scoring Cards have none.
