Official Rules / Phantom - just checking
« on: June 28, 2020, 10:37:39 AM »
Quote from: WikiCarpedia, paraphrasing slightly ...
The phantom can be also placed as second figure after removing a figure during the "Move Wood" phase ...

An abbot follower (The Abbot)

A follower or a special figure (The Festival)

A follower trapped by Vodyanoy or Solovei Razboynik (Russian Promos)

Now I'm pretty sure that this means a phantom can be placed on the tile just played following one of the above (as per normal rules), but - to me at least - it also kind of sounds as though it might mean that the phantom could be placed on the tile from which the other wood had just been moved ...
Please confirm.  :yellow-meeple:

I see that Carcassonne93 has already tackled this typo. Thanks for pointing  O0
So Carcassonne93 now has edit access to WikiCarpedia?

(typo) existing text - "The yellow farmer has not impact since he occupies another field."
suggested edit - change "not" to "no"

Official Rules / Re: Player sequence when auctioning tiles
« on: May 24, 2020, 01:38:56 PM »
My opinion, FWIW, is based purely on this thread. I have no experience of the expansion concerned.

My natural understanding of the quoted rules is option 2. As an English (UK) speaker it seems natural to me to interpret the following ...
Quote
the next player who has not yet bought a tile during this bazaar
.. as if the additional meaning, added in brackets below, was also present.
Quote
the next player (to the left of the current auctioneer) who has not yet bought a tile during this bazaar

Since there is no explicit definition to provide a new meaning to 'next player' it seems logical to reuse the original definition.

This all seemed simple enough when I began to compose my response. Now however I can see the following ...

Firstly, there is no clear implication of how the next auctioneer is to be chosen - I have mistakenly conflated 'player' with 'auctioneer'!

Secondly, even to the extent that my logic stands up, this is only my inference. There is no information such gives us insight into the author's intention ...

Hmm. I can't get it any clearer in my head than that. If this actually helps, I shall be amazed!

Have you looked on cundco.de?
Interesting idea!

I thought I'd give it a try ... They have this - https://cundco.de/en/mini-expansions/carcassonne/338/carcassonne-solo-version-for-free?c=75 - which is German and English versions in a single PDF document.

(You need to click through into the 'description' of the shop item to give the download link.)

Which versions? The original ones with the roads misnamed as cities etc! (Face palm.)

... editing the rules in the fan expansion format ...
Is there a template of some kind? Can you share a link to the post that contains it? (I find myself thinking it would be nice to create a pdf using such a template to contain the order of play for my specific set of expansions.)

For reference the HIG page from which those links were taken - https://www.hans-im-glueck.de/news/aussergewoehnliche-zeiten.html
Re my earlier post above. The links to the solo variants contained in that page are still broken.

However ...
Best to take from this page:

https://www.hans-im-glueck.de/spiele/carcassonne.html

they're 404ing here too though.
The links contained in the page that Decar shared are now working again!

The file URLs have of course changed again!

Whether the content has changed again, I don't know. I'm close to being past caring.

General / Re: Where can I find such extensions for Carc 2
« on: May 02, 2020, 12:30:38 PM »
I myself am from Russia, and today I accidentally found an ad for the sale of these add-ons, I have not met them anywhere before,so I decided to ask on the forum.
Do you have a link to the ad?

Is there a way to generate a PDF of a selection of expansions, I thought there used to be but I can’t find it
That’s the idea... I think he is working on it...
That will be brilliant!

I have often thought whilst using Order of Play that a pdf - very close in style to the official rules documents, as the Order of Play and related pages are in their output - would be a really useful way to keep a snapshot of a particular combination of expansions.

PS I edited my post (probably more than once) after you quoted it, but then I'm not the manufacturer of a hugely successful game with fans hanging on my every word.

OK, I want to stress that I'm not here to have a go at HIG but is this scenario typical

Welcome to my life circa 2013 - 2018.
So that's a "yes" then? ;)

OK, I want to stress that I'm not here to have a go at HIG, but is this scenario typical? This is almost my first experience of any kind of product release having only discovered Carcassonne late last year.

It's kind of frustrating when, as a fan, I casually evangelise Carcassonne (as I have by posting these on Reddit for example), only for the links to be repeatedly broken. (And Carcassonne/HIG to be presented in an unflattering light as a result.)

Maybe I've gone mad, but these links don't appear to be working at the moment.
1) Who knows.
2) They're not! It's almost as though HIG can't quite decide whether they want people to play with these rules or not ...

For reference the HIG page from which those links were taken - https://www.hans-im-glueck.de/news/aussergewoehnliche-zeiten.html
