A Thief's Fortune - 18 June 2018 on Kickstarter!
The manual states that resources are randomly blocked, but that company blocks are placed "next to" the portfolio.
We have interpreted that as meaning that all companies start out unblocked.
A player needs to initiate the first block, and after that one company in the portfolio (or possibly two, in the two player game) will always be blocked.
Can someone confirm this ?
Yes. Players initiate the company blocking.
