The rulebook states: "Blue Zone: “Labor and Civil Unrest – The Nation must pay any 3 Resources, if able, in order to restore order in the homeland.".
Is this meant as a one-off at the moment when you enter the blue zone? Or do you pay 3 resources every turn? and if so, where in the turn sequence?
Our interpretation was: pay every turn during the morale phase. Is that a correct interpretation?
from page 21:
Step 4. Apply Stress Zone Penalties
Stress penalties are cumulative and recur each round (i.e., if a Nation is at that level or worse).
