Official Rules / The Festival & Shepherd
« Last post by Windekind on Today at 12:21:51 AM »
If you play with the expansions, the festival and hills and scheep, can the shepherd be removed or placed?
If you can removed the shepherd, then the sheep are lost? Or can you count them? Or do they stay?

In Car 7.4 there is no mention of the shepherd.

Wow, so you won on every feature but Jack won the game overall?! TheSteve will be delighted!

Just goes to show that the gold really doesn't like you thodekey!

Haha, gold is indeed not an expansion that likes me.  It would be tempting to say that those goldmines costed me a 5-0 win in this scoring system but that would be wrong and it wouldn't do right to the game skills of JackFace.  In fact, if it wasn't for the goldmines, it could have resulted in a 4-1 loss for me.  The goldmines might have been the perfect decoy this time...  >:D

Anyway, everything -well, almost everything- to make TheSteveAllen happy.  ;)

This is a perfect example of what I had in mind when I set up the league. Using the goldmines as a 'decoy' is a very good tactic and I don't think for one moment that this was accidental. Increasingly players are taking on board that the winning of the game is not 100% what it is all about. It is about winning league points using a Carcassonne match to do so, which is far from being the same thing. I have a feeling that the 'holistic approach' to matches might actually improve everyone's game for 'normal' competitions. I hope so, at least.

Well done to both of you for being a perfect advertisement for this tournament. A merit from me to you both!

Q14:
It already feels like a long time ago, but of all the forum members who had a birthday in February only one of them can say that Decar used his 4600th post to wish him a happy birthday. Who was this?

If you think you know who this was, please PM me with the answer - don't answer here!
