Can defensive cards be played at any time or only during your turn? For example, if a mate of mine plays squatters on me do I need to wait for my turn to evict them? If so, then there is no real defense to their "making your most profitable tenet move" ability, as this is resolved at the start of your turn. If not, then they loose some power.
Other issues we ran into on our first (2 player) game:
1) When a mover is played, does he give $2 to the owner when *anybody* plays a move card or only the owner?
1a) Is this money given immediately or at the end of the owners turn (per usual rent rules)?
1b) if a move card is played to move the mover then who gets the money? This hinges on the outcome of 1a.
2) When using bomb cards, is the victim exempt from needing an alibi? In our game we decided they weren't, but that could present some nasty situations for the victim if so. 3 times in our game the victim (me) was sent to jail for calling the cops on the real culprit.
That's all I can remember for now..
Thanks in advance.
We play that the police can be played right away to defend against the Squatters. You don't have to wait until your turn.
1) Yes, anytime *anybody* plays a move card.
1a) they pay immediately
1b) the original owner of the mover gets the money
2) Nobody is above suspicion... so yes, the owner of the bombed building can go to jail.
