Q? If a mission is built on an empty tile, how does one show ownership (I presume ownership doesn't matter for a presidio since it protects everyone on its tile and each adjacent tile)?
Q? Can a mission be built in the desert (this would arise ownership issues since a settlement cannot be built on a desert tile)? Can a presidio be built in the desert?
Q? What value are missions when the ruling country is not Spain or Russia (I do see that building all missions is an end-game trigger)?
1. In my last game, I actually built a
mission presidio in a space and did not settle the space. I just wanted it to protect and be fed by my adjacent settlements. Another player ended up settling it for some reason I cannot recall.
2. I don't know of any rules about missions in deserts, but since you cannot settle in the desert it would be a waste of one's resources unless to trigger the end game.
3. Haven't played the advanced game so cannot comment.
