Can a player deliberately skip a turn by attracting a figure that is already at the same space with the Handsome Hal?
According to the English rule, a player can choose action 1b) to attract a bodyguard or the Sauce Sue to his space. However, if a figure is already at the same space as the Handsome Hal, can a player choose action 1b) by doing nothing?
In my games, I disabllow this act to force game progress.
I've never been in a situation where I'd WANT to skip my turn, and it's difficult to imagine one. After all, you can spend your turn trading in cards if you don't have any better options. And even so, I've never spent a turn trading in cards except to make the deck run out so as to end the game. There's always something I want/need to accomplish on the board.
That being said, I agree with you that it doesn't seem in the spirit of this game's rules to allow a non-move. These rules don't even let you play a card unless you can get the full value of the card.
In our games, putting der Blond Hans (Hal) on the same space as Brilli-Lilli or one of her bodyguards is often done defensively: to keep Hans (or Dirty Harry, as my girlfriend likes to call him!) from being able to exercise his power.
