Leaving gaps on the board game
« on: March 24, 2020, 03:35:54 PM »
Hi Everyone
Quick question, to which we can't seem to find a clear answer. We play the standard game + River + Princess and Dragon + Cathedral and Inns.
We seems to argue when one of us has a chance to finish a city but it would mean leaving a gap on the board as per the picture attached.
Could someone please clarify if it is allowed?

Hi OlivierWery,

Welcome to the forum! Hope you enjoy a lot all the contents and discussions you may find here.

Although leaving a gap in the game board is always ugly to the eye, it is perfectly valid.

Welcome to Carcassonne Central Olivier!

It's a very important part of Carcassonne strategy to leave pieces incomplete.
The rules do not require you to complete features, and especially not for other players.
Tiles can be placed anywhere where it connects to the existing board and so that all of the edges that do connect to the board match their neighbouring tiles (Field to Field, City to City, Road to Road, River to River).

It's great fun when you figure out that certain tiles are no longer available, and your opponent won't get their meeple back this game  >:D >:D >:D
