Connecting to Leipzig
« on: March 24, 2020, 10:01:25 AM »
Hey everyone - got a quick question regarding roads leading to Leipzig:

The English rules refer to the fact that you can put a meeple in Leipzig even if the road you finish doesn't connect directly and instead connects through "a village", and the first time I read the rules I took that to mean exactly one village.

But I think, based on a potentially wrong translation of the German rules through Google, that reading "a village" as meaning literally one village is incorrect, and it's okay to connect through multiple villages along the way. But again, I don't speak or read German and Google Translate can do some strange things sometimes.

So...any number of villages, or just one? Thanks for the help!

In WikiCarpedia http://wikicarpedia.com/index.php/The_Markets_of_Leipzig/en is written:

Each of Leipzig's quarters has one road which starts at its gate. All roads which are connected to these roads offer the possibility of sending one of your meeples to Leipzig. This counts as well for roads which are not directly connected to Leipzig, but are connected through a village.

In german rules:
Dies gilt auch für Straßen, die nicht direkt nach Leipzig führen, aber über Dörfer mit einer Straße nach Leipzig verbunden sind.

So it means streets which end in a city which is connected to Leipzig or other city which is connected to Leipzig or city witch is is connected to city witch is connected to Leipzig or other city which... ;-)

So don't worry.

Please, don't believe Google translate. It's horrible!

Hi there!

I normally use deepl.com for translations and it is usually better than Google Translator.

This is the translation I get from the German rules:

Quote
Von allen Stadtvierteln Leipzigs führt eine Straße weg. Alle Straßen, die damit verbunden sind, bieten dir die Möglichkeit, einen Meeple nach Leipzig zu schicken. Dies gilt auch für Straßen, die nicht direkt nach Leipzig führen, aber über Dörfer mit einer Straße nach Leipzig verbunden sind.

Quote
There is a road leading away from all districts of Leipzig. All streets that are connected to it offer you the possibility to send a Meeple to Leipzig. This also applies for roads that do not lead directly to Leipzig, but through villages are connected with a road to Leipzig.

So the roads considered are:
* Roads connected to Leipzig directly
* Roads connected to a village which connected directly to Leipzig

Hope this helps.

That's essentially the same translation that Google gave me, so it wasn't too bad this time. So I guess the difference is that the German uses "villages" while the English uses  "a village". I think that the intention is that you can trace the road through multiple villages on the way to Leipzig and still place a meeple in a quarter. You can't trace it through a city (the kind that scores you points) along the way though.

Thanks!
