    What is Caravan Rehoming? It's not allowed in the Game of the Month rules, but I don't know what it is. I want to make sure I don't inadvertantly do it!

    Caravan Rehoming means changing the home city of a caravan.
    Changing the home city of any unit can be done through the city screen (you bring the unit to the city and click upon "support from this city").
    If you do that with a caravan (or let us say many caravans) and the new city is a big trading city (for example your SSC) the benefits can be tremendous.

    I never knew there was such an exploit, but I'll try it in my Single Player games.

    Rehoming can also be used for defensive purposes. If you have just sent a caravan to another city, and the barbarians threaten it's home city with destruction, then you can re-home it(or other units) before the attack and save it. I would argue that this should be a permitted tactic in GOTM games.
