The 4th starting island contains a repair icon, but per the special feature of this island, a player has to pay 6 gold to repair here.

If a player has enmity tokens on this island, do they increase the cost of this repair action? Our group voted no, reasoning that the rules explicitly specify only two actions that have their costs increased by island enmity (purchasing goods, and purchasing ship upgrades at island docks).

Does this seem right to folks?

NOTE: We are on game 3, and have only unlocked the first box. We have NOT unlocked anything dealing with colonies, in case those rules change the answer to this question.

For what it's worth, I agree with your logic. Note that enmity also doesn't affect the price to *sell* goods, assuming you find a market.

Edit: Matthew (below) has a convincing point. Any time you pay an island, enmity should increase the cost -- and that does seem like it should apply to the repair. However, it still appears not to apply to *sell* costs.

(Very mild prologue-ish spoiler)

Note that this would appear to count for exploration results that allow you to pay for something.

The rulebook on page 11, under Enmity and Costs on an Island states:
Quote:
Price at islands: When paying an island (for example, to buy goods), add one gold to the price for each enmity of yours on the island.


I haven't seen the rules for repairing at an Island, but if they refer to "paying the island", I would expect the rule above to apply, even if the repair action isn't specifically called out.

Official answer from JR:

The group is correct, no increased cost
