"Keep Summer Safe!"
The rules are unclear to me when the neutral claims a route.
If a trade route is entirely occupied with neutral traders, it will be established immediately (within the active player‘s turn). The active player places a neutral Kontor in an adjacent city, and prestige points are payed. Neutral traders occupy the next available house in a city irrespective from it‘s colour (Privilegium) or shape (Merchant).
So far so good.
The remaining traders are removed from the game board – if the trade route doesn‘t lead to city with special capabilities: In this case, one trader remains on the trade route again.
What? The "If ... not ... this case" has me flummoxed. I get that in one case (a special city or not) one trader remains, but I'm not sure which case it is. I'm guessing special city.
