The Festival & Shepherd
« on: December 15, 2018, 12:21:51 AM »
If you play with the expansions, the festival and hills and scheep, can the shepherd be removed or placed?
If you can removed the shepherd, then the sheep are lost? Or can you count them? Or do they stay?

In Car 7.4 there is no mention of the shepherd.

Hi Windekind,

There are no official clarifications about the interaction of these two expansions in the 1st or the new edition. After checking the CAR 7.4 and Wikicarpedia (http://wikicarpedia.com/), the rules indicate that The Festival allows you to remove any figure on the tiles of the playing area. That would include the shepherd.

Additionally, the following conclusions can be drawn:
  • Removing a shepherd does not invoke the Herd flock into stable action, so no flock scoring would take place
  • Regarding the shepherd's flock, it is reasonable to leave it as is on the game board: If it was shared with one or more shepherds, the other shepherds would not be affected; otherwise, the flock could be claimed by a new shepherd. It would be an analogous case to the sheep found on some tiles in 1st edition minor expansions such as The River III or Halflings II.
After looking into your question I also have added some clarifications (check the footnotes) to the Wikicarpedia The Festival pages for the 1st and new edition covering this matter and the interaction with other new edition expansions. You can check them for more details:

All your comments are welcome.

Cheers!
