I have a question about 【city of the nomads】,which come from 3 Is a Magic Number
feature:each time you complete a new set of black，black and pink location，gain either 1 raze and 1 card or 2VP
does this means
when you complete a new set of black，gain 1 raze and 1 card
when you buid a black location，gain 1 raze and 1 card
when you buid a pink location，gain 1 raze and 1 card
is it right？
No. I don't have the card with me, so I'll explain based in your text.
Suppose that you have 4 black locations and 0 pink location in play:
If you build a another black location, nothing happens because you need pink locations to complete the set of "black, black, pink".
Now you have 5 black locations and 0 pink location and build a pink location, you will choose to gain (1 raze token AND 1 card) OR (2 VP). because now you have a set of black, black, pink.
After that you build another pink location and you will choose to gain again (1 raze token AND 1 card) OR (2 VP), because you are now with 5 black locations and 2 pink locations (you have to sets of black, black, pink and one black to spare)
You will need now to build another pink and another black location to gain this bonus again.
I hope this helps.
before that ,i found it overpowered，then i thought i might houserule it
thank you very much，i misunderstand it indeed。

In other words, that's how I explain it to players i learn:
This location triggers when you build a location that makes your Empire to have:
- 2 black and 1 pink
- 4 black and 2 pink
- 6 black and 3 pink
- 8 black and 4 pink
Each time it trigger you may choose one of 2 rewards:
- Gain 1 raze token and 1 card of any type.
- Gain 2 victory points.

Follow up question:
When I built City of Nomads, I had 6 black and 7 pink locations in play. Here is the way I played the card:
There are 3 black, black, pink sets in play. Building City of the Nomads is the first black toward my 4th set. I get no bonus.
Next action I built another black building giving me 8 black and 7 pink. I now have 4 black, black, pink sets. City of the Nomads triggers.
Is this correct?
Should I place 3 common cards under City of the Nomads when it comes into play to indicate the 3 sets I already have? Should I then add a 4th when I completed the 4th set?
