I'm a quitter. I come from a long line of quitters. It's amazing I'm here at all.
I can feel bits of my brain falling away like wet cake.
Is that worker from player one still sitting in the Marketplace blocking Player 2 not only on their first turn but on the second too (and till the worker is moved or evicted)?
Am I correct in reading that the worker does not come back to the relevant player's table space before moving from building to building? Basically preventing you from taking Marketplace on turn 1 then when you get to your second turn picking it up and putting it back on Marketplace for another resource grab.
I haven't been playing like this but it looks like once the workers are first deployed they spend the game moving from building to building (occasionally getting evicted from sales or spending an extra turn in the same building) and never repeating the building resource action from turn to turn unless it is some special circumstance such as putting your worker in a town building, buying it next turn and putting the worker back.
