I've got the first edition of Antike (yay Funagain's $29.95 sale!), but I'd prefer to play with the updated rules. I'm having a small amount of trouble, though.

The pdf is available here, as previously linked:
http://212.227.153.71/antike/antike_rules_060809.pdf

The important bit is on page VII (or 9): "Also, nations with all eight know-hows can trade marble, iron or gold with the bank at any time, at a rate of 2 for 1."

Is this any two resources for any one resource, or two of the same for one of another? That is, can I trade a marble and a gold for an iron? Or does it have to be two marble / two gold?

Thanks for your help.

If it was marble, iron and gold, i wouldn't know. But for me, it sounds like you trade 2 of one type (marble, iron or gold) with the bank.

That's the way it sounds to me too. I'm pretty sure it's two of any one type for one of another. I played recently with these rules, but it never came into play.

The rule is intended to replace the original 1:1 resource trade where each resource could be traded for any other. The intention was not to restrict the trading but to make it more costly, so we play that resoures are still freely interchangeable, but just at double the cost, e.g., a trade for iron could be done with 1 gold and 1 marble, or 2 marble, or 2 gold.

From a GM from Mr. Gerdts:

"Hi Mr Walsh,

as far as I can see, it is nowhere said that both resources have to be identical. Therefore, of course you could get 1 iron for 1 marble and 1 gold if you wish!"

I just bought this game.

On the second last page of the English rules there is a Frequently Asked Questions section. It says:

"What does a nation do with gold when it already has all eight know-hows?
The nation with all the know-hows can trade resources with the bank at the rate of 2 for 1. So it can, for example, trade 3 gold and 1 marble units for 2 irons units, ..."
