Twilight Imperium Trade Agreement
What is remarkable is that it is a circumvention technique for the trade of raw materials if you did not adjoin another player. During the Agenda phase, you can trade trade agreements and then in the next round, one of you can pop-trade. Once you have exchanged trade agreements, you don`t need to be adjacent to exchange them. As with many others, the reason for allowing others to refresh their products for free would be a diplomatic tool. Remember that if other players don`t have updated cards, YOU can`t receive any commercial merchandise from them. I am not sure what you are talking about or what you think is not clear. The only ambiguity is whether there are ships specifically side by side, or whether the systems count how the 2 bits of text contradict each other on this point, otherwise it is very clear “the goods are exchanged between fractions that ships have traded in neighbouring systems” and “you can only trade with your neighbors. A neighbor is defined as every fraction that has ships or planets claimed in a system next to yours. I think that in TI3, with the new objectives, all the variants that favor combat, it is always better to let others do the fight (first). Honestly, in our group, trade is one of the least picked strategies. While it is true that it gives you a nice income and a mercenary, it will not prevent you from attacking your neighbor if it achieves a goal. There are also commercial goods to someone who has not chosen the business strategy. There are no real consequences for attacks (except diplomatic relations, which are upset) because you will be able to conclude the same trade agreements again in the next round. It is rare that the primary player is not allowing people to act.
When a player gives a commodity to another player, that merchandise turns into merchandise; the player who receives the goods overturns the token on his commercial side. Players are encouraged to fill out the goods through the Trade Policy Card and exchange them in mutually beneficial transactions. All that has been said, I bet the Hacans can negotiate with anyone, whether they are side by side or not, and they can probably update their merchandise pool without CC, regardless of what the person says with the trade card. This would explain why they get 6 goods by getting refreshing, while most others get 2-3. Whenever trade arrives, they can trade with anyone, earn 6 commercial goods in total, while giving only a particular 1-2 opponent. Plastic pawns represent different classes of ships and ground forces. Players are limited to the number of pifs made available with the game, with the exception of fighters and ground troops. Counters are included for registration, including command marks, control markings, post-D commercial goods, and additional combat and ground troop counters. The maps are used to pursue global ownership, trade agreements, technologies, public objectives, secret objectives, special measures and political voting plans.  When 2 players exchange their “trade deal” cards Ex: Arborec (3 raw materials) and Jol-Nar (4 raw materials), but they are easily distinguished by the goods in my “goods” area on my race sheet and the goods in the “commercial goods” section of my bow.
