The Usenet rules translation says
Quote:
The saboteur is used against a laid out building belonging to the player with the fewest shields

Frank Branham's says
Quote:
The Saboteur may be played only on the opponent who has the fewest shields in their city.

In a game with three players, I have two opponents. If I am the player with the fewest shields, am I able to sabotage the weaker of my opponents?

Don't play by the rules in the box. Being only able to attack the player with the least number of shields leads to a run-away leader problem. Choose any rule set off the internet and play by that.

Here's an adopted translation, with two variants on a player aid card:

Don't forget that you can also attack a player's cards on hand if he has 5 or more.

We also play with some modified rules:

1. Get 3 income (+ gate income) instead of rolling the die if you so wish.

2. 2nd round of a hidden card auction: the auctioneer reveals the type of tower (left or right).

As for the saboteur we use the official rules. I don't know if there is a runaway leader problem since i bought the game recently...

Thanks guys. The game wasn't mine, so I may not get the chance to play again, but I'll note your advice re variants.

But which interpretation is the official one?

1. You can only attack the player with the least number of shields in their city.

Roll:
black dot = building destroyed
1-2 = no effect
3-5 = opponent can pay the cost of the building to save it (if he wants)

2. If a player with >=5 tiles in hand is attacked just discard one at random.
