The Falcon Expansion - First game
« on: September 29, 2015, 05:32:30 AM »
so... we did it!  ;D
I built the tiles and the wall pieces in this days and this morning we had a first game!
so...
it was really really funny!
we used the phantoms as Kings and the normal follower from Carcassonne as Falconers for now, it's not necessary to have the right meeples, but the only think to do to have them is to buy 2 Mayor and 2 meeples of Hunters and gatherers from cundco (1 black and 1 natural wood are the best choise, even if they are not the same colours of the Castel's meeples).
We also used the Rules Variant that the scoring follower must stop on the gates when counting points. It add much strategic way to play, you can close an opponent feature the would give him many points to force him to take only few point if his scoring follower is near the next gate!
the Aeris tokens are funny to play, they add another goal to reach with the biggest house.
The king is really power, even if in the rules is written in the "Walls tiles" section that with these tiles you can double only one time, but is not written what if the king in on a path with a fountain!
the Falconer is usefull to take some aeris token!
the chapels doesn't add much to the game! is difficoult to build a great chapel, but is great to see another colour on the gameboard!
the gameboard itself is more big for the 4 gate pieces and maybe there are more points to take with the aeris tokens and the biggest house!
so...
we loved The castel before... we love the castel more now!  ;D

Wow, great work, merit for you! Your tiles and city gates look really well done!

I'm glad you liked it. I hope to play it one day too :)

Merit for you! ;)
A knight is sworn to valour.
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.

Secondo game done!
We use the rule that the king doesn't work on a path with a fountain.
But another question is:
What if you take multiple points from different feature and your meeple on the scoreboard is near to a gate? Exemple... Next gate is near the follower by 2 points... In your tourn you take 10 points, 5 from a feature and 5 from another... Can you use the first 5 points to stop on the gare (taking only 2 points) and than the other 5 points normally? Or when you stop on the gate you lose all?

I'd say it only would stop one of those scoring events, whichever you chose, and then you move on.

I agree. That seems consistent with the rule of breaking down the total points you score in a turn into their individual features for the purpose of gaining wall tiles.
