Hello,

If the Bank is the lowest number building (the only building in fact) and the town needs to build a building (we're doing 2-player shortened game), does the town build the bank? A literal reading says yes, but it feels like a nasty bit of business for someone who's been planning to buy the bank for a round or two. Hoping for a quick response!

Thanks,

Drez

That's how we've played it. Really sucks for anyone who is set up for it or who has used actions to gather the appropriate materials. But it's easy to see coming unless another player builds / purchases a lower numbered building at the last possible moment.

I don't see why it wouldn't work that way.

Yes, the Town builds any building with the lowest number in the Building Proposals, even if it is a building like the Bank. The purchase price of the Bank is so high that it is rarely worth a purchase. So, plan ahead accordingly and don't let the Town build it before you do.
