"The player advances a number of spaces on the Doge track equal to the current position of his counter"

I'm confused about the mean of "CURRENT POSITION".
It can be read as the order on the Doge track and square number which player's counter currently placed.
Which is correct?

Current relative position on the Doge track (1 if in 1st, 2 if in 2nd, 3 if in 3rd, 4 if in 4th)

Yeah, it's current relative position. Might have been clearer if we've written it that way.

Just because I am a math nerd, the incorrect interpretation of the rule would not result in your current position squared, it would result in your current position doubled.

I prefer the term "rank" to "relative position" If you are five spots ahead of me on the doge track then you could say that my position is five behind relative to your position, which is not what you mean here. If you say I'm ranked in third place on the doge track and should move three spaces that makes more sense.

You're right, I think "rank" is the word that will be used in future editions.
