Four of us played for the first time yesterday - liked it so much we played three games.
However, there is one rule that seems terribly ambiguous. In one part of the rules the one-shot Civil Wars and Religious wars MUST be activated while another rule says they are OPTIONAL. Or, is it just the Coronation and Trade shifts that are optional?
We played to the rule that they are mandatory if you play the card. Is this correct or is there a middle ground where you have the option but still have to deploy the agents, repressing any tokens you replace? A clarification is needed here.
One shots are always optional, but you must declare whether you're triggering them or not when you play the card.
From rule E2, if you trigger the one-shot you must deploy the agents. If you don't trigger, deployment is optional.
