Order of play flow chart?
« on: January 24, 2016, 01:46:47 PM »
Hi all
Apologies if this has come up before, I did a search and came up empty!

Is there a 'flow chart' anywhere that details the exact order of play for all expansions ie when each event takes place, pieces are scored etc

This would make playing with new expansions or with new players much easier and prevent a lot of missed points for those still learning!

If the answer is no, would there be any interest in me making one?

Cheers

There is in the CAR document at page 207.

It can be downloaded here.

Thanks, should have said im aware of this. Im envisaging a simpler, graphical version (almost certainly based on the order of play in CAR!) just to act as a visual aid when playing.

Aha! Not to reveal too much, but this may become available in the near future when the forum's large side project starts to bloom. :)

OMG!

My actions:
1. Open file.
2. Say "WHAT???"
3. Close file.

This is SO HUGE! I wasn't thinking that Carcassonne is so complicated game! :o

But still, I think some members would make more sense out of this Zugablauf than releasing Carc 2.0. :D

Haha, that freaked me out too. It looks like the flow-chart for finding the launch code for a nuclear weapon.

Thanks for this Fritz_Spinne, I had a quick look at it but I'm afraid I may have accidentally launched a nuclear weapon in the process. Is there any way this can be checked?

So, attached is something I knocked together based on the order of play included in the CAR. Let me know what you think! Can't promise its mistake-free! I'm also planning on making it a bit 'prettier' when I get some time but for now this will do.

It probably doesn't cover all expansions (I still need to include all the Robbers and Messengers indicators for example) but it covers most of the big ones.

I think there is potential for something useful here, particularly when playing with lots of expansions, or for those that don't know the game as well.

Cheers :orange-meeple:

This is very good! +1 merit for you!

I have noticed something in regards to the City of Carcassonne scoring order. Wouldn't it come before the fairy points are scored, since it comes into play before any points are scored? I may be wrong but would like a second opinion on this.

I would also change the wording 'You must lay a bridge down if required' to 'You may lay a bridge down'. This is just me being a bit picky!


Other than these points, I really love what you have done and hats off to you for producing a very visual and easy to follow order of play!

I can't open it on my current device but I believe Dragon was repeated on the left middle flow. I could be wrong about the term, but one of them was definitely repeated. Also, you forgot to include anything with the Plague (placing fleas), the Little Buildings (placement), the tunnels (placing chits), or the Catharsis/Siege/Besiegers (escaping). Overall, though, it looks good. I like all the curly arrows.
