I used this card and I got pulled along side to the first place as the card states but then the card states that all inventions in the first place should move one space backwards. Does this mean that when I get pulled to the same space with the first player then we both should move backwards one space? Because the card states inventions in the first place and we both were on the shared first place.
Or should we have understood the card so that neither of us were in the first place at that moment because we were sharing the first place? How this should have been resolved?
As you are tied and there are no other inventions, you are both tied for first place, and also tied for last place. Both are true.
Also if there's one space between us, does that mean that I get pulled one space forwards and he gets pulled one space backwards and we both end up in the same space?
Correct, because you resolve the "then" clause after you resolve the forward movement.
Hope that helps!
Keep rollin' sixes,
