Official Rules / Re: Can the fairy be with several Meeples?
« on: March 19, 2019, 03:26:47 AM »
My half memory of this (I haven't looked up the rules to cite, sorry) is that this is actually a difference between the original German rules and the English translation.

In the original German rules, the Fairy is assigned to one follower on the tile. It protects the whole tile from the Dragon, but only one follower benefits from the Fairy points.

In the English translation, the Fairy protects the whole tile and all followers benefit from Fairy points.

Can anyone confirm that? Or am I talking nonsense?

I know it's an unpopular opinion, but I like The Catapult. I think it's fun.  :D

1. Traders & Builders (builder is the best strategic addition, trade goods for completer rather than owner is really nice)
2. The Princess & the Dragon (fun expansion with great tiles, I love eating people with dragon)
3. Inns & Cathedrals (all very interesting strategic elements)
4. The Catapult (unpopular opinion - I think the flinging element is really fun)
5. Abbey & Mayor (abbey mechanic is good but the tile is really ugly on the landscape)
6. Under The Big Top (very creative expansion but a bit overpowered for scoring)
7. Hills & Sheep (nothing special but quite fun)
8. Count, King & Cult (the count is too overpowered but I quite like the king and robber baron)
9. The Tower (too easy to remove opponent followers with no defensive options)
10. Bridges, Castles & Bazaars (I hate bazaars - slow and prone to huge over analysis)

Couldn't bring myself to wait for the chance of it coming on Cundco. :green-meeple:

I just bought a Big Box 2017, so I now have a spare copy of the base tiles, Inns & Cathedrals and Traders & Builders in the new art (tiles only).

Free to a good home.

Your method is a little bit different, and I am not sure it corresponds to the rules of the quiz: when it is time for discard - you keep some tiles, which could be discarded on current step.

Dan's question was just:

So with this thinking in mind, what's the maximum number of tiles that could be discarded in a basic game?

So I think my method is valid, since the tiles could be drawn in that order. :)

Here is my 53 discard game:

I think it's very possible that this can be improved upon, so a bit of tinkering is still in order!

Great puzzle, Dan! Thanks. :D

Mr Numbers, does your double counting mean that you only discarded 50?

I think I have a game which discards 53, but I’ll have to play it through once more…

I own quite a few of these, but only consider the stickers a "must-have" completionist item. Mainly because they are actually useable in the main game and they were originally released in Spielbox.

Though if I could get my hands on CutCassonne I definitely would byu it…

Plus it more than makes up for having a copy of 'Overzee' - my least favourite spin-off by far :(

I quite enjoy Discovery! I like the mechanic of having to choose to take a meeple back to fully score them.

Wow! Well done! Where did you managed to get those? I didnt think the newer set was even available anywhere   :o

I've had the 2013 pair since they were sold on Hobby World.

I traded for the two 2016 tiles with a guy on Board Game Geek who (somehow!) had multiple copies. He wanted a German first edition of Der Fluss which I was able to track down and I also gave him a tile signed by Klaus-Jürgen Wrede.

Finally tracked down the two newer Russian promo tiles! My old art collection is 100% complete again.  :green-meeple:

I seem to be in the minority here in not understanding the appeal of signed tiles

I like having one or two signed tiles as a novelty in my collection, but in the case of a new expansion I would rather have the unsigned tiles!

I once made this post about how tile watermarks have changed over various releases of expansions:

Maybe that will be useful too!
