It feels a bit silly complaining that you can't use a feature in a game where it is not meant to be used in  :o
Guys my english is not perfect but sometimes I wonder if you even read my posts. I never complained about not being able to use abbots. I was noticing that a game version who does not include abbots include an abbott mechanic instead, something that's weird to me. It was intended as a playful remark.

You can still play abbot meeple on Winter edition. But it will be limited just for 6 monasteries.
As I said, I'm not doing that. The point was the garden present on the tile of a game version that predates C1

Isn't the fact that one (1) tile in the whole base game box shows a garden on it, but it's not playable given the fact that the Winter Edition is designed in a pseudo C1 style therefore lacking gardens everywhere else? I'm not adding abbots to a game for just one (1) garden on the whole map. My in-universe view is that garden is yes a garden, but it's dead due to the cold, therefore no one want to go there, let alone an abbot who is very busy  O:-)

My only real concern is that the Ukraine tile will be out of stock or that something else I want to order will be gone by then (it happens almost every year).
Don't you worry my friend, I'm sure some of the people who got 3/5/10 tiles at the Essen event (for """"charity"""" and nothing else, of course) will be very glad to solve your problem, by selling you one yes at 49,99£ but plus just the minimum shipping, or simply offering you a fair trade (just a KJW-signed edition of The Market of Leipzieg maybe, or just one copy of the 2018 Limited Special Edition in exchange for the tile).

Your interpretation is correct, followers are those that may take control of a feature by being placed on a tile (this last specification excludes the barn).

The summary picture of the WICA page you mentionned isn't intended to make a distinction between meeples and other figures. But if you select expansions on this page, then you have a distinction between meeples and other figures that aren't meeples :yellow-meeple:

Thank you. I think the main issue here was the fact that in English we use the same word "meeple" for the single basic wooden figure ( :green-meeple: ) and also for the whole class of figures.
In our games (in italian!) we use different words instead: "meeples" are all the figures that can close a feature, while we use something that can be translated as "little man" and "big guy" for the two specific basic figures

:green-meeple: :white-meeple: :red-meeple:

Official Rules / Doubt about Wheel of Fortune Pestilence event...

...and more generally, about the concept of "follower".

The Wheel of Fortune Pestilence event is described as such: "Every player must return 1 follower from a land tile to his or her supply". There were two shepherds on the map and we discussed whether they could be removed or not. I objected, because I've always treated the word "follower" as a 1-to-1 synonym of "meeple" and I've always defined meeples as figures that are able to close features.

According to this definition, the extended meeple/follower family includes normal meeples, big meeples, abbots, mayors, wagons and ringmasters. Conversely, it does not include builders, pigs and shepherd.

This interpretation was satisfying enough to us and we decided that shepherd cannot be removed by pestilence (not very logical, since shepherds can get sick too but anyway...). Is this correct?

Also, while discussing, we ended up in the Game Figures page of the wiki. Here, a very strict distinction between what's a follower/meeple and what not seems to be made. According to the summary, only the basic pieces are considered "followers" or "meeples" and everything else is not. According to this, wagons and mayors are not followers, so they cannot be removed by pestilence.

This felt weird. So in the end, we were confused.

I love it! No more confusion about what's C2 and C3 and everything is easy to find! Congratulations to everyone involved in this update!

These also include base game + some expansion(s). On WICA they are called limited editions.
Yes these are definitely in my wishlist   O:-)

The Marketplace / WTB - Many different expansions and special items
« on: October 15, 2022, 06:12:04 AM »
I am looking for many different expansions, variants and special items. The complete list is attached to this post as an image, or you can find it here as a Google sheet.
Basically everything that is in white, I want it ^-^
Let me know if you have anything to sell, specifying the price (both for the items, and for shipping), and the availability. I live in Italy. Thank you!

One slightly unrelated question: how come the Ukraine map got C2 style and not C3's?

They are not special, just regular boxes wrapped together by shrinkwrap.
Thank you, I'll remove them from my wishlist then, together with all the russian things
