NEW Complete Annotated Rules
« on: May 22, 2015, 11:09:54 AM »
It's that time again! Brand new CARs! What can you find in the new Standard CAR?

New expansions? Check! Both the Castles in Germany and the Russian Promo tiles.

The most recent clarifications? Of course!

Better organization? You bet! I've put the mini-expansions in alphabetical order, and I've also consolidated expansions with different names but the same rules (Crop Circles I and II, Siege things, Heretics).

The Winter CAR now has a section for the digital winter version (removed from the standard CAR), and I also made an addition to the Order of Play.

I honestly don't know why you're still reading this. You do this every time. Go get them!

Winter CAR v1.3: http://www.carcassonnecentral.com/community/index.php?action=downloads;sa=view;down=293

Thanks obervet! Great work as always.

Sorry to be the first to do this, but I spotted a tiny mistake: on p.125 under the Castles in Germany headline it says the original release date was 2014, when it should be 2015.

Excellent! No more internet searching for German Castles rules. Wahoo!

Minor edits: Layers on page 126 are mixed. The text boxes are beneath the image layer so they appear blurry. Also, the cover does not have any of the Castle tiles on it. Also, there's no mention of the "wildcard" Crop Circle Halfling tile on the Crop Circles pages. I know it isn't technically a part of that expansion, but a reference to the tile may be good. In fact, it may be a helpful idea for a future edition of the CAR to always note on an expansion page when elements from an expansion appear in a different expansion. I'd appreciate it for sure.

Great job as always.  :(y)

His heart knows only virtue.
His blade defends the helpless.
His might upholds the weak.
His word speaks only truth.
His wrath undoes the wicked.

Great as always. Merit for you! Also like the new structure, although an other approach might have been, to list the 6 "numbered" Minis separately, because they had a wider distribution through retail sale and also a reprint in Big Box 4. But this would also mean to cover River I separately, since with all the base game editions including that expansion, it is probably the most common one. So keeping everything alphabetically might be more consistent.

One really minor thing is the watermark, you put next to the headline of "River I", which is in fact only included in the "2014 version", in which paragraph it is even mentioned, that it has a new watermark. So for sake of clarity I would suggest to put the watermark rather next to the headline of that section, than to the top of the mini expansion.

Have read over that paragraph before, but would definitely endorse that idea.

Another minor addition, which could be added to footnote 22 for clarification:
This is important when playing with The Flier or The wagon.
I myself know this, but constantly tend to forget it in play, as once again in a game for the A&M League, where I gave away 8 or 9 points by completing the 4 road cloister with the same tile as the road with my wagon on it, adjacent to it.
