Carc - Bridges, Castles & Bizzares - Castle Question
« on: February 06, 2017, 12:49:32 PM »
Hi friends,

My wife and I were playing last night and this scenario came up:

My wife was building a PRETTY big city -- and I was trying very hard to get my meeples on it. However, I realized I had a castle token that I could put in the vicinity and should she complete it before anything else (or I complete it), I would also get all those points (GREEDY GREEDY!).

However, you usually need two of these city tiles with the 'half circle' end pieces in order to create a castle (see image below).

However, I had one of those 'half circle' end pieces and then one of the 'newer' city end pieces (from the abbey and mayor set) that doesn't quite look like a half circle (see second picture below). I tried to create a castle out of this and my wife said 'no you can't' because it wasn't two round end pieces making a four point city.

Does it matter what two end city pieces it is -- just as long as you're only making a two tile city?

Thanks

Whatever you decide to do works.  There are 2 sets of rules that say different things.  House rule it!


"This excludes small cities which do not consist of two semi-circular segments, such as might
be constructed using the cfrf tile with the triangular city segment shown"

"The ZMG rules, however, state that a small city consisting of “two city end segments” would
qualify for castle placement, which would allow use of the triangular (or in your case the tile you pictured) city segment"

dirk2112 was here first, I will just confirm, that official rules state that you can't use anything else to create a castle apart from semi-circular segments. So in this case your wife was right.
