I dont follow about the idea behind the Market.

I think you roll a Dice and it should provide the direction of the Barbarians.

The rules are very clear , Is there really a reason to implement FAQ ?

1. The rules state on page 13:
Quote:
1. Find the Barbarian settlements within
2 spaces of your cities, even accross Sea
spaces (no crossing unrevealed regions).
2. Of these, the settlement with the most
Barbarians attacks the closest of your
cities.


Note that it is only "your cities" that are affected. The barbarians can only attack the player who drew the event. Therefore you can manage your advance to avoid triggering a barbarian when you don't want it.

2. From the same rule reference on page 13 shown above, note the words "even across Sea spaces"

3 Player trades are discussed on Page 14:
Quote:
Player Trades
During your turn, you may trade with other players. You may
also trade with a player during that player’s turn. You may trade
(at whatever cost you can agree on):
• Resources
• Action cards
• Objective cards
• Mood tokens
• Culture tokens
Trade deals with an immediate transaction of the above items
must be fulfilled. Verbal agreements of a diplomatic/political
kind, as well as loans and transactions to happen at a later time,
are not enforced by the game. Only the players’ conscience and
goals determine the validity of such agreements.



4. Christian has mentioned he will make a FAQ in the thread about the Great Wall...but he did not indicate where it would be posted. I would not be surprised to see it in both places.


I love the box art as it really does capture, in my mind, a Clash of 2 very different cultures.

1) When is this an issue? Event icons only affect the player who draws the event card. Usually - in case it affects all, you do what it says in turn order starting with the first player.

2) On p.13 - it says barbarians can attack across the sea. Though not like players can across many hexes - only 2 hexes away from the barbarian settlement (Christian answered this resently).

The ways of the barbarian are mysterious and unknown. They appear suddenly at your city gates despite natural barriers.

In basic terms, barbarians do not "move". They simply appear at the city, attack for one round, then retreat back to their settlement.

I just noticed that your original post suggests you do not own the game and have not even read the rulebook. Are you trying to learn the game vicariously through forum threads?

But what goes wrong with downloading the rules? Just tried it from www.zmangames.com and it works just fine for me (with the english version). Did you try a different browser?

Edit: French works too
