The rules say that income is to be paid after the Loading phase.
Wouldn’t it make more sense to pay income immediately after the Purchase phase?
Income can neither be altered nor used during the Loading phase.
Following the rules just introduces a memory exercise, along with the potential for bickering.
Those of you with infallible memories probably can’t make sense of my question, but how about the rest of you?
Is the game somehow better by waiting to pay income?
Am I overlooking something?
I don't think there is an issue here. Rulebook has to be well arranged. Loading just logically follows purchase, so this makes the rules more clear at first. You can play loading and income at the same time, I guess.
