Hi all!

For those interested in the rules for The Tollkeepers, you can check its WICA page:

http://wikicarpedia.com/index.php/The_Tollkeepers

I will update the graphics as soon as the rules in PDF format are available.  ???

Tomorrow I will update the Reference pages: Game Reference, Order of Play and Scoring pages.

I'll keep you posted.

Cheers!

This may be a fault of the rules themselves and not you specifically but I wanted to highlight a clarity issue with the rules. The rules state that if you raise a toll then you get points for gardens, highwaymen, sheds, and groups of travelers. However the rules do not define what a shed is. I looked all over the wiki until I remembered to look at the rules for the Markets at Leipzig and in this section ( http://wikicarpedia.com/index.php/The_Markets_of_Leipzig#cite_ref-9 ) they sort of better define what a shed is. It was there and then that I was able to infer what is meant by the broad term “shed.”

With more expansions taking advantage of these new CC2 exclusive icons perhaps the icons should be better defined. Also for this new expansion you should probably highlight the incompatibilities when using this expansion with the CC1 artwork like you did for the Markets at Leipzig expansion.

Hi DaFees!

Thank you for your feedback. I included a note regarding using sheds instead of stables to be consistent with Markets of Leipzig, but I can see it will be better to include the definition in the clarifications, as it is not a concept established by the base game either. I assumed the scoring example would serve to explain what a shed was, but I must admit you have to read thoughroughly the rules to find this reference and make the connection in your mind.

The additional use for these features can be seen an incompatibility with C1. However, these rules can be adpated to C1 if we take into account the small houses you can find in some fields. This may serve as a house rule. I will include a note on this matter too in The Toolkeepers and in Markets of Leipzig.

+1 merit from me.

Cheers!
