With the Reduced Tribute it is worth to do this sequence against 1 point Opposing Cities during the year:
- Go to a 1 point Opposing City
- Next Season, assault the City (if gained 1 or 2 Prestige)
- Next Season, leave the City (the City return to its loyal side)
- Next Season, go to the City again (a Siege is established)
- Next Season, pillage the City (1 Prestige)

Result after 2 Years: at least 4 Prestige Point; if the assaulting forces take the City and mantain it, the result would be only 1 or 2 Prestige Points. Of course is not always possible.

What do you think? Is this sequence legal?

Re: REDUCED TRIBUTED IN 1 POINT CITIES (413 & 415 SCENARIOS)
You would have to move to the city during the PREVIOUS turn and spend the winter besieging the city, or you don't have enough seasons to pull off this sequence. But otherwise, looks like it would be legal. But it's a lot of actions...

Yes, that's true, there are some considerations:

- you have save a good card for the Winter Maintenance
- you cannot "lose" turns with events
...

But I think that it is worth it (at least 2 Prestige Points per Year in 415 with Reduced Tribute). I, playing with Athens, gained many points doing that sequence against Pella.

Winter pillaging is not allowed, see rule 9.21.
