But there's no sense crying over every mistake. You just keep on trying til' you run out of cake.

When you take the fisherman action space in the summer do you have to pay 1 wood to upgrade your fish traps (like with the master action) or is the upgrade free?

It's free. The explanation on page 12 says nothing about paying a wood...just to move it one space to the right.

That's what I thought, but I wanted to double check. Thanks!

Cool, I had the same question.

Although the action description in the rule book on page 12 does not explicitly mention a cost, on page 7 of the rule book it says that whenever you see a white/blue Frisian Pattern you have to pay the depicted cost and it specifically mentions to 'move one of your Tool Indicators one space to the right'.

I will however take the free upgrade if it is being offered!

I was going to disagree, but then I looked in the german rules, and it looks like the translater forgot to include the words "for free" in the translation of the fisherman action.

So I have to agree with Gary, though not on the basis of the english rules, which are rather ambiguous in this one case, but because the german rules state that it is "kostenlos" to move the marker.
