The Barber-Surgeons questions
« on: December 23, 2018, 05:37:51 AM »
Hellooooo!!!

First game with this expansion... It's very difficoult to play with and here some questions:

1 - does the Abbot go to the Barber-Surgeons fter scoring if they are free?
2 - it's clear that if there is a Barber-Surgeons on a city or street, the follower who takes the points from these takes also the points written on the barber-surgeons. But after? does the same follower go in a barber-surgeons?
3 - can I take back a follower from the barber-surgeons with a Festival tile?
4 - what happens at the end of the game?

thanky you and marry christmas!!!  O0

Hellooooo!!!

First game with this expansion... It's very difficoult to play with and here some questions:


Hello and Merry Christmas!!!

The Wikicarpedia (http://wikicarpedia.com) provides some clarifications on the basic rules and the interaction of The Barber-Surgeons and The Festival on the following pages:  ;D

http://wikicarpedia.com/index.php/The_Barber-Surgeons
http://wikicarpedia.com/index.php/The_Festival

Anyway, I reply to your questions one at a time.

Helloooo1 - does the Abbot go to the Barber-Surgeons fter scoring if they are free?

YES, the abbot goes to a free bathhouse, if available. Please check footnote #1 at http://wikicarpedia.com/index.php/The_Festival for more details.

2 - it's clear that if there is a Barber-Surgeons on a city or street, the follower who takes the points from these takes also the points written on the barber-surgeons. But after? does the same follower go in a barber-surgeons?

YES, if there is an empty bathhouse and the meeple is alone on the scored road or city. Nevertheless this meeple could be spared from the bathhouse if additional features were completed and you, as the player placing the tile, decide the scoring order of the features so other meeple (yours or from another player ;) ) is taken to the available bathhouse.

A meeple is alone if  there is no other meeple from the same player or from another player on the feature. Note that if a builder was on the scored city or road too, it would not interfere with the meeple moving to the bathhouse as the builder is not a meeple. Please check footnote #1 at  http://wikicarpedia.com/index.php/The_Barber-Surgeons for more details.

3 - can I take back a follower from the barber-surgeons with a Festival tile?

YES, as per The Festival rules, any of the player's figures on the playing area can be retrieved, so bathhouses are included. Please, check footnote #4 at http://wikicarpedia.com/index.php/The_Festival.

4 - what happens at the end of the game?

The Barber-Surgeons rules do not describe any actions regarding the end of the game or the final scoring. This suggests that meeples still trapped in bathhouses at the end of the game will not be involved in any scoring. You only remove them when scoring - No other action on them is possible as you don't place any more tiles or meeples. 

Hope this helps...

Again, Merry Christmas!

Cheers!
