plague source tile and completion of cities and roads
« on: February 14, 2017, 07:44:13 AM »
Q: Can a city or a road ever be completed if one of its tiles is a plague source tile? Because if I understand it correctly upon these tiles you place a outbreak token and they will always cover the plague source tile for the rest of the game.

Sure.  See the tile placed below with yellow meeple added.  You can't add a meeple to the plague source tile.  I don't remember seeing anything that says you can't complete a feature that is attached to a plague source tile.   Otherwise you could kill an opponent's big city pretty easily without needing the fleas.

thank you, I see now that the tokens are smaller than the tiles. I just read the rules of this expansion without viewing the tokens and tiles and I just thought they were the same size...

other question, the rules state that the plaque spreads in every subsequent turn of the token( if possible) Does this mean that in the first turns the players have to place flees on all the 4 sides of the outbreaktoken and when this is done the fleas can be placed next to other active flees?

This is one of the things that isn't spelled out well. 

"During his or her turn, each player should take a flea token from the supply and place it—active side face up—on a tile which is adjacent (horizontal or vertical, not diagonal) to the Outbreak, and which does not yet have a flea on it. As play continues, one may alternatively place a flea on a tile adjacent to one with an active flea"

The "one may alternatively" line makes me believe that after the first flea is placed next to the plague tile, the next player can grow the plague from the flea and leave the plague Outbreak tile empty on one side.   We have only played this once and in every case, the plague tile was placed where it was only touching one tile, so we didn't have to worry about it.
