I have read through the postings pretty thoroughly I think, but just want to get clarification on a couple items:
1) My understanding is that there is only one colonist placement per warfare box (only 4 possible warfare events per turn), but is it alright to place a colonist in a warfare box if I have no intention of carrying out the warfare action?
2) Is income collected on the last turn (turn 8), or only the VPs? I think there is still some confusion on this issue, and Glenn's responses didn't seem to clarify it for me.
1 - Yes. In fact you can place a colonist in any dock and refuse the action.
2 - Yes, it's used for the Wealth building as VPs and it's also the 3rd tiebreaker, I believe.
