Re: Two Player, International Market, are the lower 3 auction spaces in second column also unavailable?
The upper four spaces of the second column of the International Market are not populated with reputation tiles during setup, but I could not find any explicit mention of whether the entire the second column is ignored in a two player game. Did I miss it in the rules?
It was unfortunately missed from the rulebook, but you are correct - you don't use the middle column in a 2 player game. There is an icon on the game board indicating this, but it was missed from the rulebook Sorry
