ABOUT MY HISTORY WITH LOONEY LABS...
It started with Fluxx and just spiralled from there! Highlights include a 12-player Fluxx game where I finally realised how great it was as an icebreaker.

Currently very addicted to Pyramid games, which is somewhat hampered by having to order everything from the US - but I haven't let that stop me and am now a proud Starship Captain

Yes, it is illegal for flocks to enter or occupy squares adjacent to each other, let alone enter into a dispute in the same square. There's no way for an opposing flock to form within the one-square zone around a given flock, because opposing dragons were expelled when the flock first formed, and cannot enter that zone thereafter. I'll go back and review the rules to see if there's any ambiguity that might allow that.
