I'd like to apologise in advance if this has been covered before somewhere. I did my best to read thoroughly before asking.
There is a card that allows the opponent to retrieve a worker and you get 1 VP. Let's assume it's winter and the opponent had already passed the previous turn. The he receives a new worker. Can she use this worker even if she passed? Or the worker is actually lost? In the latter case, of course, the best move would be not to retrieve the worker. I just wanted to make sure what the rule would be.
Thanks a lot.
The Essential Edition rulebook has this sentence on the top of page 7:
If a player passes, he may place no more workers that season.
So the answer will be no, she cannot use the new worker if she has passed.
