If I would have more than one hometown in one row, would I be allowed to activate a hometowns function twice?
In our last game we had the situation of two houses in the bottom row and the player made a training action and used both houses to train 4 people.
Is this allowed?

Yes.

You can use each hometown only once per round, but you may use several hometowns in the same player turn.

If you have two hometowns in the second row and all three of the bottom line, you may trigger an education action with the first hometown, adjust the price with the second, and make three additional educations for the three in the bottom line. Thus, with only one sand timer and 3 coins you can educate 5 persons of the cheapest kind. I have never seen that, but - yes - it is in accordance with the rules.

You could also use the three bottom line hometowns for additional money from the tax collector. For one sand timer you could get 4+4+4+4=16 coins; for two sand timers you could get 8+8+8+8 = 32 coins! (Edit: correction of coins for tax collector).

Greetings
Stefan

Hi Stefan,

thank your for the clarification.

Mmh, you would need to get a double sand timer for that, right?

Correct! Sorry for twisting number of sand timers and amount of coins. I have amended the original post.

We should have seen this before our game today. We played it as multipliers instead of adding the coins. Played this way, we gave a player who owned two home towns and two tax collector cards, 8*2*2*2*2=128 coins for this action.
