A few questions about suburbia...

1) When tiles are placed, are all tiles connected to the new tile activated again?

2) Each turn you receive income; does your population increase every turn based on your reputation?

Last time I played, we only increased our population when tiles with Meemples were placed...seemed off.

1) When a tile is placed every tile in play that is affected by it activates.

Example: When you buy an airport all airports in play increase the income or reputation of the owning player. If you had a power plant your income would increase from your new airport.

2) Your population does increase or decrease at the end of each turn by your reputation.

And by activates, it just applies the incremental effect of the tile, not the tile's full resolution all over again.

Above example expanded with numbers: Assume your borough has a Power Station, 2 yellow tiles, and that your income is +2. You place a Domestic Airport in your borough, which increases your income +1. Following the steps on the player board, you eventually get to the resolution step where you look for tiles in your borough affected by the placed tile (step 5). Here, the Power Station activates, and increases your income another +1 (for the one added yellow tile, not +3 for the 3 yellow tiles in your borough). Assuming that there are no other effects to resolve, you would end up with an income of +4, not +6.
