yes...that's what i meant...
- if an event card requires someone to remove 3 influence from "any block", can you select a block where you might only have 1 or 2 (instead of another block where you actually have 3 or more)?
- when spreading influence...let's say i drop 4 cubes on an empty square...can i then spend X dollars to leaglly move X number of infl cubes to adjacent occupied squares to reduce my opp's inf (or even drive him/her out)?
Yes. Although I believe you pay 1 crown per block you are spreading into, not per cube you spread (keeping in mind you have to always place at least one cube in the original block you targeted)i checked, and you're right...pay 1 for each block you legally spread to, not 1 per cube...thanks!
- and, can i place influence directly into a block with opp player's cubes?
Absolutely. They just cancel each other out.
