Victory Tower?
« on: February 22, 2022, 01:19:30 PM »
Interesting item that the Carcassonne Central Discord crew spotted in an eBay auction. This "victory tower" was supposedly a give-away that some (German?) retailers had received. It has flags in 4 player colors ( :red-meeple: :yellow-meeple: :blue-meeple: :gray-meeple:) and goes from 3 to 17. It is intended to be used to track the number of games won when playing several games with the same group of people.

Thanks to Drodo for debunking this claim. The "victory tower" is actually a Catan accessory.

Nice, this could also be used to track the number of scoreboard laps during a game  :yellow-meeple:

When combined with the 50/100 tiles, yes. First lap, grab a 50-point tile. Second lap, flip it over. Third lap, plant a flag on the tower. Subsequent laps, raise the flag.

What if a player draws a tower tile but they don't have any more tower floors?

Why can't you capture pigs and builders with a tower?
