Is a barn a meeple ?

Is a barn a meeple ?

Simple as that really. My overwhelming feeling is NO but I couldn't put my finger on it in WikiCarpedia and I don't want to keep the other player waiting. (I have assumed NO to keep the game going.)

I'm playing solo, two handed. ;)

Hi cicerunner,

Barns are not meeples. They are special figures, the same as pigs, builders and shepherds.

You can see this clarification about the status of barns:

Maybe I'll divide them to three groups:
1. supporters: builder and pig
2. Special figures: barn and shepher
3. Scoring board figures: Lady (messenger) and robber

Kettlefish sponsored a simpler classification after her discussions with HiG:

(Check this posts: http://www.carcassonnecentral.com/community/index.php?topic=3384.msg58309#msg58309 - the previous one is also interesting  ;D)

So you have special figures in the playing area and special figures on the scoreboard (scoring figures)
