Can bridges lead to an open field?
« on: September 28, 2022, 02:56:35 PM »
Basically, is the placement of bridge A legal? All of the example we can find show bridges leading to roads, but the rules only say that both of the bridge's ends must stay on a field, not that it has to lead to another road. But this feels weird because basically "kills" a road, that is now uncompletable.

The official rule does not seem to mention this, but my understanding is that the spirit is that bridge A is illegal. A bridge is essentially an elevated road that connects to a road or another bridge, which ultimately connects to a road. As you said, bridge A kills a road at the edge of a tile, which does not happen other than in the rare case of an Abbey.

Correct, the road has to be continuous, so bridge A's placement is illegal  :yellow-meeple:

Bridge is a road, so no it cannot lead nto a field.

We were misled by this. Sometimes the rules imply something but in the heat of the game we tend to read them strictly. Thanks to your clarifications

Haha. Don't worry, this will be never ending process. I realized just this week, how is computing tie on feature with Hills from Exp 9.

There are many key nuances, important tiny details and edge cases hidden all over the rules... A maze within a maze.

Disclosing and exploting all these details is part of the fun.
