The Builder..
« on: February 01, 2015, 03:15:17 AM »
Please forgive me if this question has already been asked. We recently added Traders and Builders to our gameplay. And so far, everything is well explained in the CAR.

However, there is a basic question we had. Here's the setup. You already have a thief on a road. It is your turn. You place another road piece to extend that road. You now decide to place the Builder on the road you've just extended.   Here's the point were we are confused. Do I get my second turn immediately, having just played the builder? Or do I have to wait until I next time I extend the same road?  In other words, does placing the builder end my turn. And I have to wait to extend the road with the builder on a subsequent turn, to trigger the double turn?

Strictly speaking, "extending the road with the builder on it", would imply, that my just adding the builder is not extending the road. And when I did extend the road by laying the tile, it did not literally have the builder on it then. So, "extending the road with the builder on it" would seem to have ro be on a later turn.

My apologies if I'm overthinking this. Or not explaining it correctly. Just want to be sure we're getting it right.

You have to wait until you next time extend this road. Technically, you can have your double turn when you extend the road with already placed builder on it.

MrNumbers was first ;)

Anyway...
You first place a tile and then, afterwards, you place the builder.
This means that the tile was NOT "extending the road with the builder on it".
You will have to wait for the next turn to get the bonus tile -if you are lucky to get a road you can use to extend with.

Hope that this answers your question.

Thanks. It does make more sense to have to wait for your next turn. Thanks for the clarification. This new expansion is fun.

IMHO it's the bets expansion as it allows for some seriously good tactical planning. So much so, I don't even think of it as an expansion anymore - when I play with friends and we play "vanilla" Carc, this includes Biggy and the Builder.
