Abbott as regular meeple?
« on: September 01, 2019, 07:33:09 PM »

I can't find the answer to this anywhere online:

Can an abbott be used like any other meeple or can it only be placed on a monastery or a garden?

For example, if my only meeple left is an abbott, can I place it on a city or a road? In other words, can there be a "thief abbott", a "knight abbott" or a "farmer abbott"?

I want to say no but it's also weird to have just one meeple left, the abbott, and not being able to place it on a tile.

Hi HeyJude01,

Congrats for your first post.  :)

The abbot can only be placed on monastic buildings (monasteries, shrines, abbeys,...) and gardens. Check the following WICA page for more details.

And as you commented, you can find yourself in a game with no other meeple left in your supply but the abbot and it is a bit frustrating due to its placement limitations.

Also bear in mind it can stay in a monastery or garden as long as you want so it can be scored early and cannot be trapped as other meeples. This means it can be used as a "quick" scoring figure if you want.

So when playing with the abbot you have to take all this into account and make the most of it.
