Placing a knight in a city containing a mayor
« on: December 30, 2019, 11:54:23 AM »
The general rules for placing meeples, including knights, is that you may not place one in a feature where there is already at least one other meeple.

However if we consider a mayor that is occupying a city with no shields/pennants/coat of arms, the mayor has 0 strength and therefore has no claim to the city.

I propose therefore that a knight may be placed in a city that is already occupied by a mayor (belonging to either you or an opponent), provided it has 0 strength.

See the rules on wikicarpedia you will see that you can’t do that.

Hi burtonlazars!

Congratulations for your first post.

Permiting the addition of mayors to ocuppied cities with no pennants could be a house rule.

Have you tried it yourself? It could become a cutthroat mechanic to take over cities by starting slow.  >:D

Cheers!

Using a Mayor in a city without pennants makes no sense...

As a final stage, it doesn't. But what if you send the mayor in a diplomatic mission to take over the city?  >:D

Take over a city with a lot of pennants you mean.

You inflitrate your Mayor in a promissing city with no pennants and then you start to add tiles with pennants to avoid other players to take over while your Mayor grows in strength. Totally evil!  >:D

You could do this but for me it’s too much risking... Maybe you can’t do that if someone takes the tiles that you are waiting for... Or if someone put a CCFF or CCRR without pennant and connect the castle and takes all the points for him...

Welcome to the forum Burtonlazars,

An interesting suggestion, however, the 'official' rules are clear on this matter:
http://wikicarpedia.com/index.php/Abbey_and_the_Mayor_(1st_edition)#Deploy_a_follower_2

I've moved this thread to the unofficial rules forum, for the discussion to continue.
