(Not a) Bug report: placing River II tile
« on: May 19, 2015, 11:54:06 AM »
I think this is a bug but then I might just be having one of my senior moments  ::)

It's the start of the game and I appear to have 2 places I can place my tile but only one is highlighted. It might also be that I don't fully understand the placement rules. Anyway I've attached a picture of the position.

PS would it be worth having some textual way to show the current position and moves? a bit like either a FEN or a PGN in chess. This would allow you to test these "bugs" a little easier. Obviously we'd need some option to show this text at any point in the game.

Hi Mike, you can't have parallel rivers, which is why you can't place your tile in the space above the red farmer. If your tile was a 'straight' river tile, then you could place it there.

Thanks for that. I must of missed that in the rules.
Can I ask why you can't have parallel rivers?
Is it because it would cut the board in half and dull the game?

From the CAR:
Important: A U-turn with the river tiles is not possible. This means that a 180° turn is not allowed, as it may lead to difficulties in placing all the tiles.
