Shepherds that get closed in are stuck there until the end of the game.
Don't forget, that sheep kept on board are not counted in final scoring for Shepherds.


Did I say 2?  Make it 3.

haha   :D
go and buy Mists over Carcassonne and very carefully read the rules. Then play a few games and your number of house rules has magically increased  >:D

It's fine for games with 71 players! ;)
+1 merit for prime number humor!

But also for your 2014 thread on this topic, which I should have read more carefully!    :)

…I was using 2 "house rules" because I wasn't aware … We still play it without correcting
The accidental house rule that you end up keeping!  Love it.

When we started, we always let the first player place a meeple on the start tile, because I didn’t read the rules carefully, but I just couldn’t imagine that the rules would demand an unequal number of turns no matter how many players were playing!?  We are now members of the 73rd-tile club, with the wind roses start tile as our 73rd.  Or sometimes we use the German Castles as start tiles.

We also played castles from Exp 8 wrong: we allowed a player to score a castle on the turn it is created!  This is too powerful, so we changed to official rules.  Actually, we played with a bunch of variants and now rarely use the castle, so I don’t know how we would play this today, probably some variant…

I also have a copy of the German castles mini expansion.  If I don't use the River, then I use the large city from CK&R as a start tile.  I didn't see anything about this in the rules because many of those mini expansions don't cover some of the possible interactions with other expansions so we apply the German castles rule about placement to the large city start tile so we do not place the German castles touching the large city.

+1 from me SxN, I'm sure HiG like to hear that their fans are watching out for them; and it's good it doesn't simply come from the same individuals every time.  We're very lucky to have the agreement with HiG to use their assets freely so long as their rights and requests are observed.

Done :)

Also, I like the distinction between "expansion" and "fan expansion". HiG has a super open licence, allowing forums like this and its sisters to exist and thrive. Other authors are not so generous (and it is not necessarily that they're "bad"; each author is free to decide how to disseminate their own creative work).

It was an expansion... not a fan-expansion though.. No 'fan' of the game would look to directly profit by making use of HiG's assets without their direct permission.
