If I spin the gears on the purple dispenser instead of the octagon disc, would that be a violation? If not, could I do it?
Generally speaking, if the game manual prohibits you from doing something, then it is legal. In this case, since the game manual doesn’t say you can’t, the answer is yes, it is legal. The practicality of spinning the gears compared to the wheel might be something you want to look into though.
Thank you for sending me this. I will most definitely look into the practicality of spinning the gears.
