Including when you spend influence to receive Reais?

You mean, to spend reais using influence? Maybe I'm missing something, because I'm not seeing how you could get a discount of 1 influence by moving your token down the influence track.
Can you elaborate?

Apologies, Vital. I think you have answered my question inadvertently. I was attempting to be brief. Let me elaborate.

The Tile in question says "Get a discount of 1 influence when you need to spend influence."

In the Rulebook, we are told "there are only 2 ways of spending influence in the game": by, 1., Visiting a Noble, and 2., Choosing to spend Influence instead of reais.

So, for example, if my marker was on the 6 spot, I could choose to move the marker to the 3 spot to generate 2 reais. Thus I am spending 3 influence to receive 2 reais. And my Clergy tile tells me I get a discount of 1 influence when I spend influence. Thus I would only spend 2, and my marker would only move as far as the 4 spot.

I thought it was possible that this was your intention. I see that the Clergy tile says "when you NEED to spend influence", so the above rules loophole probably doesn't apply as you CHOOSE to spend influence instead of reais. (except there is the case where you must pay for a penalty and you have 0 reais, but DO have influence you could convert to Reais, so, not sure.)

I humbly submit that the wording on the #10 Clergy Tile be made more clear, if in fact my thinking is incorrect.

I now understand. You are right, thank you for the tip. I will change the wording on the tile with a more specific explanation.

#10 Get a discount of 1 Influence every time you Visit or Follow a Visit to a Noble.

No problem, Vital.

I'm a backer of Lisboa and thoroughly enjoying it on Tabletopia!
