I did a solo-ish play to make sure I learned the rules.
However, I assembled a list of questions and clarifications.

1) The Union of Arras seems to indicate that the slit orange yellow spaces become Spanish core. I can find nothing to say that they were not core before this event. Also, how does this effect the construction of Walloons. I really just need and explanation for this.

2) What happens to ships in spaces under siege. I think they can move, but if the space fall are the ships destroyed?

3) Can a player use a combination of cards and treasures to declare war or must it be one larger card?

Finally I find the troops in the area tend to cover up their spaces and I cannot always tell if the space is protestant or catholic. How do you guys deal with that. Any suggestions are welcome.

1) They were core Spanish, but now they are nolonger core Dutch. Which means no +1 die in rebellions and no unit construction there by Prots if he should get one of those spaces.
No change to Walloon construction - still the only unit that Spain can build in Netherlands.

Edit: Additionally it also means, that if Prots have made his capital in a split orange/yellow space, the capital is removed and send to the turn track. This is done since the Prot capitals must be in a home space for the relevant faction (Dutch or Hug).

2) Yes. Yes.

3) Combi allowed. Even one which overpays.

4) I mostly play online on vassal, but it is a problem in real life play. Maybe have the troops to a side when possible (like out in the water for coastal spaces).
