There are some events that allow troops to be constructed and one event (at least) that allows a colony to be constructed (Genoese Bankers).

Can the Ottoman use such an event to construct troops in North Africe, despite the constraint that they cannot normally do so? (This also applies to Spain). Tricky one - for example, the Foreign Volunteers seems entirely plausible for play to recruit in these locations, but then presumably so must other events.

Can the Ottoman use the event that allows construction of an expedition with a colony even before the Suez Canal is built?



Bonus question for those still paying attention: The rules say that upon circumnavigating the world a Sea Captain is removed from the map, but it is silent about whether he is now placed on the turn track. I assume he is (as in other cases of successfully returning Sea Captains), but it would be nice if the rules were explicit.

1) Foreign Volunteers is the only event that would allow troop construction in North Africa.

2) The Ottomans cannot create a colony with Genoese bankers before the canal is built.

3) Yes, the sea captain goes to the Turn Track after circumnavigating. He can reenter next turn.

Thanks, Ed, for an incredibly rapid and clear-cut response.

And thanks, too, for designing such a fantastic game! I'm having such a great time with it.
