I'm new to this forum with a quick question concerning Rex. I read some of the other threads, hoping to find the info I'm looking for, to no avail. Before explaining my problem, I have to admit that I have the German version, I only know the English manual, not the English game, maybe the problem I'm having is limited to the German version. So here it is:
The Lazax and the Hacan both have the special ability to collect influence when other players spend it. The text on their faction cards is almost identical (as I said, German version), except for the part about what other players have to spend their influence on. In the manual (both the German and the English manual in fact), in the part about clarification of the factions' abilities, it states that "whenever an ally of the Hacan spend influence" on troops the Hacan get that influence. This is not clarified for the Lazax. What I can gather from reading this forum (and others) is that the Lazax do indeed get influence from other players for card bidding whether they are allied or not. How about the Hacan's ability? Do they only get influence from their allies? Why is there a difference between the card's and the manual? Is this limited to the German translation?
Anyway, I hope you guys can help out. Thanks in advance!
