Dragon and printed sheep
« on: January 16, 2020, 10:14:39 AM »
Also a stupid question I was wondering: If we play with expansion dragons and expansion hills and sheep, what if dragon lands on a tile with a sheep painted like on River III for example ? If there is action gather flock, should we score point for the sheep ? That would seem counterintuitive since it should be eaten, but poor sheep is just painted on tile. I don't think it was ever discussed.
My own personal take on this is that, while the sheep would obviously remain on the tile, the presence of the dragon on that tile means that you can't include them in a gather flock action until the dragon moves. Basically, the dragon blocks the sheep. I doubt you'll get an official ruling on that, though, since the only pre-printed sheep appear on CC1 tiles (River III and Halflings I), which Hans im Glück is done making new rulings for. At least for thematic reasons, however, the dragon should still block sheep from being gathered even if it can't eat those sheep.

I think is is a very good question.  :(y)

I split this message so the discussion could continue without disturbing the original thread.

I agree with whaleyland. Since there are no rules or official clarifications about this case, my take would be that the dragon cancels temporarily the printed sheep on the tile it is placed (normal or Halfling) if any herd the flock to the stable action is performed.
