This is what it says in Spielbox magazine on page 55:
Quote
Some tiles of the cundco version show symbols from the "Schafe und Hugel" (Hills & Sheep) and "Die Kornkreise" (Corn Circles) expansions. Ignore these symbols if you aren't playing with these expansions.

There is nothing further about the corn circle tile, so it looks like kettlefish will need to ask Georg Wild.

For the hill triangle tiles, you must draw a full tile to go underneath. Another triangle can be placed afterwards, and the hill counts for both triangles.

Also, triangle tiles can be used to complete cloisters (and similar features which use the same mechanic).

So we have the club for roads
We have the shield for cities
We have the fork for fields

What if this circle is for religion? cloisters monks abbots?
its the only feature not yet in the circles

As I sad in another post:
“As usual the rules are unclear, but I don't think it has ever been released an expansion with rules so badly thought trough as with the Haflings." >:(

I'm going to qualify that, actually. The Plague is the worst-written expansion EVER. Seriously, they didn't consider any expansions with it, which makes for all sorts of rules confusions. But after that, Halflings II wins the race.

Also, read "trough" as "through". That's what I get for turning off auto-correct.

Sorry, English is not my native language. :-\

I love the tiles (but they could have been cut better, as you pointed out in your excellent review). But it's a shame that they forgot the rules, as the haflings are one of the most exiting expansions in a long time (I have acquired tree of both).

They just didnt play with them... didnt think about them and never asked feedback with it.. they made very bad rules for.them and they could have make a very good expansion. But they choose the easy way.

I've sent to HiG this question about the Crop Circle on the triangle tile.

We don't know how to play this Crop Circle, because it is no:

‘Pitchfork’ crop circle
This affects farmers (on a farm segment).

‘Club’ crop circle
This affects thieves (on a road segment).

‘Shield’ crop circle
This affects knights (on a city segment).

Perhaps this crop circle is a sort of "Joker"...

the picture shows my original German questions

The crop circle on the triangle tile is a Joker.
That mean the player who places this tile can decide if he use the rules for the shield, for the fork or for the club.


I've got this clarification from Moritz Brunnhofer - HiG- on Friday 28 11 2014 by call.

Someone deleted my comment, why? I wasn't expecting an answer to the question...

EDIT: nevermind, this was posted in two different threads so I got confused. :)
