A Canal square is split into 2 zones: In and out of the water.
- Assassins /Allies on a Canal square always have to be placed in the water and cannot use weapons with the icon, nor specific bulky weapons (as mentioned on the affected weapons’ cards).
- The Enemies on a Canal square are always placed outside of the water (on a dock or on a gondola for example). Enemies on a Canal square can attack unhindered.
Note: Enemies on a Canal square are not blocked by water. They can join any Nearby space (if the Nearby square is a roof, they will usually need a ladder).
