Overtext is really cool. The best 100 GG I've ever spent.
Well. I'm actually bored with overtext. Why did I give all that GG away?
The rules say:
Each player selects a color and takes: [...] 1 movement marker
A player has exactly as many movement points available as he has movement markers in his play area. At the beginning of the game, each player has two movement markers[...]
There is one movement marker in each of the players' colors, so obviously each should have one. But where does the second come from as there are no fortresses built yet?
