Official Rules / Re: Fruit-bearing trees
« on: April 21, 2019, 06:23:37 AM »
As I said it was discussed, there was no tribunal.  Mind you a lot of clarifications over the years have not been through tribunals either.

I documented the games played on my write up last year.
It wasn't my intention to seek formal clarifications while on holiday; though others were using the time to do this.

The reasons I believe you can action more than a single tree per turn is as follows:
  • The Place a Meeple section includes two clauses, not simply one:
    • 'When', which I believe corresponds to the eventuality of placing a meeple on a tree tile.
    • 'If', which corresponds to a later turn, when you place a meeple on another tile.
  • The second clause refers to 'the tree', not 'a tree'. I believe this means that the if clause applies to each tree on future turns.
    • I think the 'one of the following action' is to limit you buying OR selling for each tree, not to limit each meeple.
    • I think when you play a tree tile with a meeple on it, next to an existing tree; you meet both clauses.  Thus, A player can take the one of the following actions twice.

Counter to your interpretation:
  • Carcassonne, doesn't deal with the niceties of the landscape:
    • For example, it's already strategically beneficial for players to creates areas of landscape players are unable to finish; even though this doesn't seem like a good goal.
    • Plays can choose to cluster some existing features, namely cloisters from the base game, to maximize their worth.
  • It still requires players to place a meeple to invoke the actions; an expensive task.
  • It takes too many turns to collect and sell fruit when you compare to scoring points traditionally; so combinations make the investment worthwhile.

Was discussed at the meetup and was validated. As the rules stand it's possible to invoke two or more tree actions. Perhaps fruit bearing trees perform well in patches of soil.

I'm not convinced they'll fold very well.  They're not paper, but a kinda plastic sheet.

I have to say as an international forum, I think it's important to accept all forums of language.  Whether anyone else understands what is said is a different issue entirely.

As an example, recently we had a new member join the forum from France who isn't fluent in English, but has made several contributions and collaborated with others on projects.  I'd not like to see this stop because of some rule about English and that's coming from someone who just gets by with English.

For a long time HiG has considered this the 'American' forum, not appreciating we have members from all over the world!

I appreciate having messages you can't read can be annoying, so I'll do my best to split topics if language branches too frequently.

If you arent a native English speaker, I appreciate taking the time and energy to compose stuff, so i can take part in discussions. Thank you!

Low supply, High demand.

Things fine their value.

As a seller you only need to sell to a single person, willing topay the price.  I have no doubt someone out there would pay 100€ for this one.

These are official tiles because it's published by an official publisher of Carcassonne in their territory.  HiG gives permission to regional publishers to: "do what they like", I assume within terms of the contract.  What they can't do is distribute globally, otherwise HiGs partners would be competing with each other.
