A game is a series of decisions; a good game is a series of interesting decisions
Thanks for the clarification.
On a (slightly) different note:
Is the Economic die roll result used to determine the event as well, or do you roll once for Event, and then again for Economic condition ?
They are listed as different steps of the Economic Phase.
There is no reason to presume that they are the same roll.
The Economic Condition card for the first turn has no roll for Economic Condition, but has a roll for a (required) event. There are other Economic Condition cards that have tables for an Economic Condition roll, but state on the card "No Event Roll". This gives even further evidence that they are separate rolls.
I rather hope that if they intended them to be the same roll, then, in the rules, they would have:
1) listed them as in the same step rather than 2 different steps
2) explicitly stated that the roll used to determine if there is an event is also used to determine the economic condition of the turn after next
-Of, course Walter could come and tell me I'm wrong, but nothing he's posted indicates that these are the same roll -
