How should the Farmer be represented?
« on: August 01, 2016, 04:37:30 PM »
If you've been following along you'll know that Meeple Source has been kind enough to offer to make us a Carcassonne Central Mascot during the course of their next kickstarter.  You can read more about it here.  You'll know our Mascot will be represented by the 4 classes of followers from Carcassonne: The Knight, Monk, Farmer and Thief.


Our next poll is starting here & this time it will be an OPEN POLL.  Where you'll have to state how you think the farmer should be represented.

I'm going to get the ball rolling by saying:

With a cap, much like this:

Hmmm. The farmer could be holding something or wearing headwear, and the monk similarly could hold a religious artefact of have the distinctive hair style.

I'd go for the farmer holding a pitchfork.

Knight: Shield with either a Pennant or CC
Farmer: Pitchfork
Robber: Roguish Hat
Monk: Brown Mendicant Habit

Those are my votes for all four of these polls.

I'm sorry we're currently only collecting the Farmer's poll via this open poll mechanism.  If you wish you cast your votes in the other polls, you'll have to keep an eye out for them.

I'm going to go with pitchfork since this is also the symbol that represents a farmer on the CC tiles...

Haha! Brilliant. The wild card CC. On the other hand doing that would solve a lot of the debate...  >:D

Not many votes on this, but a decision has to be made.  Pitchfork it is  :(y)
