There must have been a moment at the beginning, where we could have said no. Somehow we missed it. Well, we'll know better next time.
Re: River 1 Tile Placement Question
Okay I admit I am a little slow, after re-reading everything I understand now that the River is deployed first and then you start the city. But I am still a little lost on one tiny detail. When you are setting the river, do you still go ahead and deploy the followers as you go? Or do you deploy the whole river and then deploy followers as you fill in the city? This may sound silly but I am just wanting to make sure I have it right.You put your meeples as you go (only if you want to of course, just like any other tile).
