Hello guys, I can’t find it in the rulebook. I’m wondering what the sequence of executing the mandate is. Do your
1) in player sequence, complete both main mandate and ally bonus

Or

2) everyone does main mandate actions followed by ally bonuses??

It’s the main then “you and your ally” part (for the player that played the mandate). You wourk around the table in the player order mentioned for each.

Yup, 1) as you mentioned. Meaning each player fully completes the mandate before moving on to the next player.

Each player on their turn does the main action as well as the ally bonus, if they qualify.

In most mandates, everyone goes then you and your ally go applying the bonus. The exception is Train, where you go first so someone else doesn't potentially purchase the card you want.

A clear example of the sequence for executing a mandate is on page 15 under MARSHAL, Example (bottom of page).

Rulebook, page 15 wrote:
[In this example, Dragonfly and Koi are allies. It is Dragonfly's turn. Seating order around the table is Dragonfly, Koi, Lotus, Turtle.]

EXAMPLE: The DRAGONFLY player plays Marshal, so they will perform it last. Going around the table, the KOI player gets to execute their Marshal actions. They Move a Bushi from Kansai to Nagato, crossing a Border. They also move their Oni of Blood and Daimyo to Hokkaido, using Shipping Routes. They decide not to Move the Bushi in Edo and wouldn’t be allowed to Move the Shinto which is in the Raijin Shrine (figures on the Shrines can never be Moved).

Finally, since they are Allied with the DRAGONFLY Clan, who chose the Mandate, they get to perform the Marshal Bonus, spending 3 Coins to build a new Stronghold in Shikoku.


Note that the Koi ally takes it's turn in seating order, immediately after Dragonfly. And it performs the Ally bonus at that moment, before other players execute the mandate.
