The Catapult
« on: April 09, 2013, 12:13:09 AM »
Are there any specific rules about where the catapult is launched from? After reading through the excellent CAR (the detail you have placed in that document is amazing...) I couldn't find an answer.

Is the catapult permitted on the tiles or must it be launched from beside the tiles or from each player's supply?

We have an officially answer from the publisher HiG at the HiG-Chat from 31.10.2008.

And where exactly has to be the Catapult?
answer from HiG:

I cannot give a precise location for the Catapult, since I don't know your table.

Sounds like there is no specific limitation then. Likely, there is no consideration by HiG for ternament play so I guess it would be up to house rules.

With the catapult is one rule:
Please don't hit the meeples from the scoring board.
