Played for the first time last night, have a couple of questions.

1. When a player rolls a seven(7) can you place the robber near an active or inactive knight?

2. Can you use the commodity cards like resources in the sense of buying cities and settlements. Example, using two coins and one ore with two wheat to upgrade your settlement to a city?

Thank you

1. Yes, you can put the robber near a knight. It is unwise to do so if you can avoid it, mainly because it could be easily chased away.

2. You cannot use commodities in place of their corresponding resources. You should be able to easily trade them though if you needed to do so.

1. yes...but if its near an active knight, that robber might get kicked back at you when its that player's turn...:-)

2. no, you cannot use your commodity cards like resources. Commodities are for upgrading your cities, resources are for building actual stuff on the board.

you may decide to put the robber on a hex with an active knight anyways. Reason being if the Barbarians are about to attack, chasing away the robber may cause him to have insufficient strength and may cause him to lose a city instead.

Besides, usually, a 7 rolls up sooner or later
