On a turn when you place an outpost that completes a column, suppose you select the tile that allows you to upgrade a resource (+2VP). Do you get to apply that bonus immediately on that same turn, but before you do a market trade?
We have played it that you need to wait until you place your next outpost, but it all depends on what you believe the timing should be. The two rules are stated as:
...after placing an outpost, if you empty a vertical column, choose one bonus tile from the supply and place it next to your player board
And the tile action rule...
May upgrade 1 cube 1 level immediately after you build an outpost
Emphasis on immediately is mine, and was how we justified that the tile action comes slightly before acquiring the tile. However an official ruling would be great.
