debt cards and +buys

Hey,
I'm not sure whether you can buy two Engineers with 2 buys. I think that you can't, but as it's not specifically said anywhere, I want to be sure.

If you have enough money to get out of debt after buying the first, then you should be fine. So if you start the turn with 0 debt, just have at least $4 and 2 buys, and 2 engineers is doable. $8, and you won't have any debt for next turn.

Yes.

If you have 6$ to spend:

Buy engineer: You still have 6$ to spend. You cannot normally use it, however, until all debt is paid off.

Pay off debt: You have 2$ to spend.

Buy another engineer: You still have 2$ to spend. You cannot normally use it, however, until all debt is paid off.

Pay off debt: you have 2$ of remaining debt.




A good reason why this is all relevant is the card Wine Merchant: You could choose to not pay off debt so that you have 2$ remaining for your current buy phase,  thus discarding wine merchant despite being in debt.

What O said. Also:

Copy/pasted from the wiki:

[Debt] tokens can only be removed from a player by paying [a coin] per [debt] token at any point after playing Treasures or spending Coin tokens during the player's Buy phase, unless otherwise specified (e.g. Capital allows paying off [debt] tokens during the Clean-up phase).

You're trying 2 buy 2 engineers during your buy phase, so you're good!
