Hi guys,

A question came up in our last game about what countries the Swiss Bank can stop. Assuming the requirements are met, can the Swiss Bank stop any country, including countries he has no bonds in, on investor? Or only countries he has an active interest in?

I think it is a fringe case that probably wouldn’t apply often, but near the end of the game a Swiss Bank may want to delay the end of the game by stopping a power trying to advance past the investor spot without stopping to get to Taxation faster. I think it is un-thematic for a Swiss Bank to stop a country on investor that it has no investment in, but not certain it is covered in the rules.

Thx!
- Roger

The Swiss bank can only stop contries on the investor field, if
a) the Swiss bank player has shares of this country
and
b) the country can pay all the dividends.

It is stated somewhere in the rules.

Point b is stated in the rules, but not point a. I agree that this is the way it should work!

Interesting. I always assume Swiss banker to be more passive, but this gives some agency.
