Improper Number of City Tokens Displayed
In Cities and Knights games, there is often still 1 or 2 city tokens being shown as available on the players side of the table when the player has in fact built a maximum of 4 cities available. This is often misleading if one is not careful and counting cities on the board and can lead players to think they can build additional cities.
Yes... You need to be careful, as the game commonly draws the wrong number of cities on the side of the board.
I think it happens when you get pillaged by the barbarians.... not 100% sure, but I think when a city gets moved BACK to the sidelines, it's "there for good".... or something else is going on, but it's ofteb showing cities left even after I've built 4.
