Maybe I'm missing something, but I can't seem to find clear rules stating how many starting shipyards and churches should be placed on the board. It says in the rule book that when playing with more than 2 players, the most expensive positions (plural) should be left free. Now, does this mean the last spot (singular) on the shipyard track and church track (both of them together is plural)? Based on the picture, it looks as if the last TWO positions on the shipyard track AND church the track are left free (4 player example is given). And does this change with 3 or 5 players?

Thanks in advance for any help with this!

After looking at the rules:

In a two player game, each player gets a shipyard and a church, leaving 8 shipyards and 8 churches, filling the spaces on the lower right of the board.

In a three player game, with each player receiving a shipyard and church, there would be 7, of each, left. Since there are 8 shipyard and church spaces, leave the most expensive spaces (in this case, one in each row) empty.

In the four player game, there would be six of each. Leave the two most expensive spaces empty.

In the five player game, there would be five shipyards and churches left. Leave the three most expensive spaces in their respective rows empty.

everybody gets one church, one shipyard and one (orange) factory.

The remaining buildings are then put on the board, from left to right, to be bought during the game.

Each player also starts with 2 ships in Portugal.
