Hi
I really really enjoy Saboteur, and finally got Saboteur 2 out, and I LOVE it!!!
I had a few questions after my first play

1. On the starting card there's a ladder, does that ladder connect to the outside world? or can it be used to connect to other ladders in the tunnels?

2. If someone rockslides a path card, and there's a ladder on the other side, since there's now a gap in the path, can dwarfs still use another ladder to reach the ladder past the rockslide?

e.g.
LADDER B
|
PATH
|
ROCKSLIDE
|
PATH--PATH--START SPACE--LADDER A
Ladder B can be reached by Ladder A even though there's a landslide in between?

3. If there is a blue door blocking the path, can you build/lay down a card on the other side of the door? (e.g. there are no other paths that connect to the other side at the moment, only the blue door's path)
a. If you are a green dwarf?
b. If you ARE a profiteer/boss/geologist?
c. If you are a saboteur?
e.g. If I were a saboteur, can I play a dead end on the otherside of the door? If I were the geologist, can I help build on the other side of the door?

Thank you so much for your help in advanced

1 & 2) Yes, all ladders connect. So you can continue a path that starts at any ladder. You can also play a ladder card off of any tunnel, even a tunnel that you can't reach from a previous tunnel.

3) Any player can continue a path after a door. It is only at the end of the round does the door serve any purpose (to help determine winners). The type of job you are holding does not prevent you from playing cards beyond the door during the round.
