In the 2nd edition of the game, how many building tokens do each player start with? I always thought each player started with 3 and put one on each of the 2 tracks and the 3rd in a port.

But it looks like the new rules state each player starts with 2 and put one in a port city. Since the new addition has tokens for the honor and corruption tracks, that would leave an extra building token for each player to start with.

What's the official rule?

Thanks!

Hello, as publisher of the 1st edition I can say: 1 on each track and one on a port, that's it.

(p.s.: regarding the 2nd edition, someone from Cryptozoic must tell..)

Pg 4 Setup Step 9 reads

Beginning with the player to the right of the First Player and continuing
counterclockwise, each Tribe Leader sets one (1) Building Disk from the
General Supply (of his or her color) at any open Port Location of his or her choice, regardless of province color.

Each player takes 2 building tokens. p 4, step 8. Then each player takes one token from general supply and places on port of their choice.

You are absolutely correct. Looks like some of the old rules did get stuck there. I have made a note to fix that in future printings and digitally.
