When Pirates (or Slaves) are attacking a player´s navy (or army), is the defender getting the training tile bonus, if he possesses some of these?
If yes, is it correct that the eventual training tiles of the player, who triggered the Pirate (or Slave) attack do not count, as the Pirates (or Slaves) are virtually independent from the player himself?
And finally, if subsequently a player attacks previously successful Pirates (or Slaves), does he qualify for the training tile bonus, if he can?
The way i have played this:
When a pirate attacks, the defender DOES get to use his naval training cards.
The pirates are COMPLETELY independent from the person playing the card. so they never get any training advantage.
And, again, if someone later attacks a pirate tile they DO get to use any training advantage they have.
- I don't know if these are official rules but thats the way we played and seems logical to me.
[oh, and, of course, change pirate/slave and naval/army references as appropriate]
Old Ways Are Best!
That's correct and if the rules don't explicitly say so the FAQ does...
