A few notes on the rules:
This information comes from the Q&A on the Hans-im-Glück website and is written by the game's inventor, Karl-Heinz Schmiel. This excerpt actually applies to the re-design of the game that appeared in 1998, but these responses should apply to both versions of the game.
Response: The start player must immediately play all cards which they want to play. The other players proceed likewise in sequence. The same applies when playing the cards and resolving the effects, i.e. first all the actions from the start player are resolved, and so on.
Response: The Coalition counters remain on the Boards, because coalitions can only be formed if a Region is the actual current Region.
Response: The old Opinion Poll cards are shuffled.
Response: Opinion cards are changed immediately after converting party meeting markers into votes (naturally only if an absolute majority occurs).
Question: May a player, who has the absolute majority of votes in the current election region after the conversion of the meeting markers (or after the use of shadow cabinet cards), exchange an opinion card ?
Response: No. In the current election country the opinion cards can be modified only by media marker control.
Response: Seats may not seem realistic here. Seats are actually victory points.
Question: When holding a party conference, do you get to look through the platforms deck and choose the program that you want or is it a random draw? (Suspect the former.)
Question: Are campaign meetings placed region by region or all at once?
