The rules state, "There is just one restriction on figure placement in a city: the two figures must always be different. This same restriction applies when using the Figure exchange token during the game."

How does this rule affect the capital city, Edo?
Must total diversity be maintained? Could two of one type, or
even three of one type, be in the city due to use of figure exchange tokens?

Three different figurines in Edo always. No point to exchange.

In fact, the rulebook (US, English, RGG) explicitly mentions that b/c of this rule, Edo can never participate in a figure swap.

I know that at some point I am going to need to point that out in the rulebook but I can't find it. Which page and paragraph is that in?

Thanks

There's no mention of it in my 1998 copy, but the rule _was_ enforced by the computer game version...

My 1998 German (Hans im Glück) rules make it clear:
German Samurai rules wrote:
In einer Stadt dürfen sich keine gleich-artigen Figuren befinden. Dies gilt auch, wenn später das Plättchen Figurentausch eingesetzt wird.

(In a city there can be no figures with the same type. This is true even if the figure exchange tile is used later.)

Sort of.... from page 3 of the rulebook, Rio Grand Games (pages aren't actually numbered, so treat the cover as page 1)

Quote:
The is just on restriction on figure placement in a city: the two figures must always be different. This same restriciton applies when using the Figure exchange token during the game.


.... so that's not exactly how it was originally quoted.

Then there are the instructions from the Klear Games implmentation of the game...
