Hello,
if have a question about the location card restrictions, especially about this rule:

Quote:
A location is connected to Boston/Quebec if it can trace a series
of connections via controlled locations. These connections can
be rivers, lakes, roads, or the sea, but not Indian trails. For the
purposes of tracing a connection back to Boston/Quebec,
locations that have ship symbols next to them are considered
to be connected to every other location with a ship symbol next
to it. Locations along the edge of the same lake are all regarded
as being connected to each other.


I have especially problems with determining whether some French locations in the lake area are connected to Quebec or not.

I recently had this case:

French player:
Trois Rivieres, Quebec settled, Montreal was raided (no cube any more).
Fort St.John, Oswego, Ft. Frontenac settled (cubes).

If the French player has the Oswego card in his hand: Is Oswego connected to Qubec? The Oswego card has connections to Ft. Frontenac.
Ft. Frontenac card has connection to Montreal (no cube) but not to Quebec.

So, may the player not play Oswego/Ft. Frontenac cards?

Same problem would be:
If TR has no cube or is captured, is Ft. St. John still connected to Quebec because its card shows a direct connection?

I think my main problem is that I'm not sure whether the connections on the cards play a role because the rule that I quoted above seems not to mention the connections on the cards but more looking in general (geographically) e.g. all lake locations are connected.

I don't have the time right now to check this case out, but have you looked at the FAQ list, which mentions some connection issues, in particular the position of Fort Frontenac?

I just looked. It seems that Ft. Frontenac was mentioned in case of determining the raid locations. In this case the question is more if the raided Montreal cuts the supply. (I'm sure it would if Ft. St. John was not settled but maybe Ft. St. John keeps the supply line.)

I think that if you see the connections map you can find everything you want about out of supply conditions.
