If a player has the Strength in Numbers Win Condition and gets 35 or more troops during the troop placement phase, do they still win if Pestilence occurs?

Yes. A player wins the game as soon as any valid win condition is triggered. The faction would win during Phase 2: Place Reinforcement Troops.

When placing troops, can I place them wherever I want?

Th is is a two-part answer:

  • When placing your initial troops (4 plus the 2 from Round 1), you are selecting your first turf and all 4 troops must be put into the same turf.
  • When subsequently placing troops, either those granted every round, by action cards or by spending DP, you may place them in any number of turfs you already control.
