Hi All

Firstly apologies if this is a really dumb question, only played a handful of games so may be missing something really silly here!! but my understanding is that in order to purchase a building (from the 3x3 grid) you need to be in phase 2 - ie take off a meeple etc...

If this is the case then for those fews buildings available to purhcase in the final round C - how can you activate them when in your tableu - I thought you had to be in phase 1 to place meeples on the buildings you own

Obviously i only mean the activation buildings and not the prestige buildings etc...

I am sure I am missing something obvious here, it just doesnt seem right as my explanation above would mean those buildings would not be able to be used other than for VP

Any advice would be very much appreciated

Thanks guys

You place your meeples on buildings in phase 2.

Incorrect. The buildings already in your tableau are activated in phase 2. The meeples placed on these buildings are not "placed" but are spent from your pool of available workers and set aside as unavailable.

As MisuVir says, the key is holding back Meeples during Phase I so that you can (1) go to Phase II early and nab the good stuff and (b) choose to Activate your Buildings with those Meeples and use those Activations to manage the timing of your Market actions. For a fairly straightforward-seeming game Spyrium has a lot of depth.

Last game I played one person went Phase II on his second turn in Round 6. Stole the good stuff before anybody loaded it up with Meeples to push up the price and had loads of Meeples to activate Buildings. We all went WTF?, in the end it didn't come off, but it was a damn close thing!
