Reviews & Session Reports / The River of Fortune
« on: February 25, 2013, 05:27:21 AM »
My friend got the Wheel of Fortune and we got to play for the first time this weekend. We both enjoyed it and will certainly play some more.

After a couple of rounds to get familiar with it, we decided to mix it up and at the same time, we've been wanting to play with both rivers for a while now. We started to see how we can play with both rivers and the Wheel of Fortune together. We have came up with: The River of Fortune.

With our first attempt, we let the first person place the T of the river during their first turn and we had put two closing of river in the mix, keeping the closing with the volcano for the last one. It worked ok and here's what it looked like before and after all the river tiles were placed and note that we took off both starting tiles of each river expansion:

What we didn't like though was the potential of closing an end too early and having it unbalanced. As you can see above, the right hand side got closed early. The next couple of times, we changed it by putting the T shape in place before we started to draw tiles and we put aside the three ends, upside down. We placed all of the tiles and then we pick from the end tiles. We liked this way better because you only get to close it at the end and it is still a bit random who gets the end piece, which is important because there's one with a volcano and another with a city.

Here's a result of this before and after all of the river tiles placed:

We allowed placing Meeple on the Wheel of Fortune during the placement of the river tiles. All in all we enjoyed it very much and we will need to play it a few more time to see if we encounter issues with using both rivers. I read online that it is not recommended to play River II with the City of Carcassonne, but since we manually place the starting tiles against the wheel, it worked quite well. I'm sure the same can be done with the City of Carcassonne, but you need both rivers.

Not sure where to post this, didn't see any section just for the site/forum.

Can I change the time zone of the forum? Not sure if I'm just blind, but I cannot see where I can do this.


Official Rules / Castles - 2 Questions
« on: February 25, 2013, 05:00:30 AM »
Hi everyone,

Played a game this weekend with the Bridges, Castles and Bazaars. We had included the Count of Carcassonne and after the session there was two questions that we needed confirmation and CAR didn't reveal any specifics.

Both has to do with the Castle and here's a Castle token for the ones that don't know and also to help with this topic:

Question 1:
If you look closely on the token, you will notice that there's grass/farm all around it and when you put a Castle onto of a two-pieces city, it does cover all of it. Does this means that it connects two farms that were previously separated by that 2-pieces city?

Question 2:
When playing with the Count of Carcassonne extension, you can put a Meeple in the City of Carcassonne when you close something and cause someone else to score and that you do not score. Our argument was after I closed a Cloister for my buddy, I didn't score on that, but I had a Castle that did scoop the same 9 points because one of my 6 tiles was touching it. Because I made points "after" the structure was closed, we weren't 100% sure how we should handle it. In the end we both agreed that I scored and therefore shouldn't be allowed to move a Meeple to the City, but I would like a confirmation of such.

Thanks all!

Where can I get it?

I can only find it as part of the original game, but since I sold mine to buy the Big Box 3, I am now looking for it.
