All,

How does one deal with the timing issues that arise in the game?

If you are buying a resource from neighbor, can they use that money right away?

Also, there are times that I have a choice to buy a resource from either neighbor, what is the proper way to decide? If I see a neighbor just put down a big military card, it might change my mind, and so forth, etc

Thx

No they can't use that money right away.

You can buy from whichever neighbor you like - I will usually try to pay the person who needs the money the least

Playing the cards happens simultaneously. You can not use a resource from your neighbor played the same turn. Similarly you can not spend money the turn you get it from your neighbor.

Deciding from which neighbor your gonna buy is part of the strategy. Depends on the given situation. I usually do not give money to a player who is low on coins (or not have any at all), which is a way to hold him back.

In theory, everyone is paying for and putting their cards into play at the same time. So everyone should know who they are paying and how much, before anyone else reveals the cards that they play and who they are paying.

this is exactly why it's better to slow the pace down if folks are getting too jumpy.

Or just acknowledge that this game is hugely based on the honor system. Many a times you feel that dirty temptation in round 3 to behave shady.
