Playing my first game of Freedom, and so far - loving it. I think I ended up with a first edition copy, so I'm not sure if this is fixed in future editions, but I had a question that the rules don't seem to address.
Can you buy tokens from the previous era after you've moved to the new one?
For example, if I move to the middle era and want to buy a conductor token, do I have to buy one of the $3 ones or can I still buy one of the $2 from the previous era?
Check page 5 of the rules:
2. Planning Phase
During the Planning Phase, each player may take up to
2 Tokens from the Token Board. At the beginning of the
game, players may only take tokens from the first Period
(1800-1839). When future Period Columns become active,
players may take tokens from any of the active Period
