Does using a Senator card in the "Election of the First Consul" phase of the game tap it (so that it would not be available for use in either the building phase or great works phase of the game)?

Thanks.

Wow. I think that I have been playing that wrong. This will definitely change the way I have been playing (and teaching) the game.

You only tap cards during the "building phase" (or phase III). So i can confirm you it does change many things !

Following on this question -- must you have a Senator or can you vote strictly with money? We assumed you must have at least one face up Senator, i.e., you can't offer bribes if you don't have a Senator to work for you.

This situation can come up if you have no Senators at the beginning of the game or no face up ones after a Christian persecution event.

You can offer money even if you don't have any senator.

The purpose here is not really to bribe senators (since they already work for you), but to use your wealth to gain power. With the senators, you use your connections, to gain power...

Regards,
Cyril

OK, thanks. We thought you needed your Senator to bribe other Senators.
