Barbarians readying troops Thu, 11 April 2019 12:47
Hey all, I have been all around the web looking for a concrete answer to a specific question regarding the ready your troops phase for barbarians, but I have never found an official ruling, so I'm hoping to settle it once and for all.

When you choose to ready your troops, what happens exactly? Is it:

A) You take all but one race token from every single region you occupy, then having the option to abandon some regions if you want to.

B) You choose to take no race tokens, all but one race token or all race tokens from your regions, making this choice on a per region basis.

C) You are completely free to decide how many race tokens you wish to take in hand (say you have four regions with three barbarians each, you could then choose to take none from one of them, only one from another, two from a third and all from the last).

Up till now I have been using option B, as it appeared to be the intention of the rules, but as I have said, I have never found official confirmation that this is the way they are meant to be played. I would be very thankful for a clarification of how this is supposed to work Smile

It's indeed B. I don't have the Pocket Encyclopedia myself, but I read some people claim it says so right in that book.
