What Van Ryder Game are YOU playing?
What is the difference between "placing" a tile and "building" a room? Why is one term used in place of the other when describing prerequisites? For example:
"In order to build [the Brothel], the player must already have placed a Guest Room tile."
"In order to build [the Whiskey Still], the player must already have built a Pharmacy."
Nothing, they are equivalent. Build = Place. When you build something you are required to place it. Same thing. We did our best to be consistent with the terminology, but obviously there are some places we could have done a better job.
